Troy's Rants

Troy at the National Black Book Club Conference

This past August I participated in the National Black Book Club Conference. It was by 3rd time attending and 2rd time taking an active roll. Below is a 6 minute video highlighting some of my activities from the 2009 affair.

If you are part of a book club and have never attended this event I’d encourage you to do so. It is like attending an family reunion with only the friendly, smart, and literate family members 🙂
