Video and Images from the 2017 Harlem Literary Brunch


Recommended Posts

The Annual Harlem Literary Bunch was co-hosted by Morgan Stanley and 37 Ink an imprint of Simon and Schuster (another reason I'm not boycotting the entire publishing company)



Going clockwise from top left are; Janet Hill Talbert, former VP and executive editor at Doubleday now owner of On This Rock Jewelry with author Brian Keith Jackson; I believe this brother is one of the co-owners of the restaurant (someone please correct me and provide a name); Dawn Davis VP and Publisher of 37 Ink with Author and Morgan Stanley Managing Director, Sandra L. Richards;   Malaika Adero, author and former VP at Atria Books who now runs the boutique book development and literary agency Literary Tribe/ALT, with iconic literary agent Faith Childs; author Tiffany Dufu with bookstore owner Noëlle Santos, who Chris Burns hipped me to, coincidentally. the very same day plans to open the only bookstore in the Bronx; and me, Troy Johnson, with Wendy Hilliard, a former Gymnast who runs the Wendy Hilliard Gymnastic Foundation. 

The following videos are readings that took place during the event.  A full brunch was served.  Copies of all the books were provided.  The venue was Minton's Restaurant, which the venue as the of the historic Monton's Playhouse, a short walk from where I live, one of the great things about Harlem.
