Got a real treat for those of you who were unable to make it to the 2011 Harlem Book Fair this past week — C-Span’s Book TV covered the event and has hours of incredible footage available online at their site’s video library.
The video segments from this iconic book fair include a bunch of compelling discussions on literature, politics, society, and media; and includes a fascinating panel featuring Sonia Sanchez discussing Manning Marable’s posthumous and controversial book, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention.
There are also many more festivals coming up in the next few months.
Make sure you check out the weekly book review below, courtesy of AALBC.
