I hopped on the Megabus on Thursday night (March 29) headed for New York City where my sister (by choice, not by blood), Amanda was waiting for me. (The bus cost me $16.50, and with gas prices as they are, I couldn’t have been happier!).
I stayed with Amanda in her lovely home in Queens and we drove into Brooklyn on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for the Eleventh National Black Writers Conference. We had the best time! Heard some great thought-provoking discussions and supported the array of vendors selling jewelry, clothes, and of course, books! I captured a few nuggets from the event.
Here are a few pictures:
