Celebrating Black History Month with the African American Read In
On Saturday, February 26, eight local Black authors gathered to read and perform excerpts from their works to an audience of enthusiastic readers at the Fleetwood-Jordain Center in Evanston. The gathering marked the second Read In to be held here in Evanston and the sponsors and organizers vowed it would not be the last. Several local Black publishers, including Adira Books and Aziza Publishing were on hand to sell copies of books, which the authors signed.
