The Tenth Annual National Black Writers' Conference

I was like a kid in a candy store. I attended a panel discussion on Hip-Hop and literature featuring Toure, Felicia Pride, and others. I attended a beautiful conversation on the depiction of war and disaster in Black lit featuring James McBride and a very poetic and intelligent Chris Abani. I chopped it up with Colson Whitehead, I shook Victor LaValle's hand, and I spent over hundred dollars on books. 'Twas memorable!

 Colson Whitehead reading from his novel Sag Harbor.

A reading with Victor LaValle, Dolan Perkins-Valdez, and Maaza Mengiste.
