An African American Book Fair

Eighteen African American authors from around the Twin Cities will gather at Magers & Quinn Booksellers to celebrate the strength and diversity of AA writing in Minnesota. Browse books from a range of local authors–ranging from children’s books and poetry to business and self-help books. Join us Thursday, July 16, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm for a great evening of community and fun.

Authors appearing are Candy Pettiford, Charles E. Cox, Jr., Coach Nakumbe, Deniesha Johnson, Derrick L. Williams, Dr. Verna Price, Jacinta Calhoun, Jeff and Shatona Groves, Joseph L. Mbele, Joyce Marrie, Lehman Riley, M. Ann Pritchard, Mahmoud El-Kati, Ms. Nique, Tommy Watson, Venita Johnson, and Zenobia L Silas-Carson.

The author fair is a unique opportunity to meet multiple authors, learn about their work, and purchase their books. Come support African American writers and writing at Magers & Quinn.

The Black Parent Group is a non-profit organization that works to connect families to local resources, provide opportunities for children to participate in artistic expression, and create events that celebrate the Black Family. Visit for more information.
