Cerritos Library Book Signing

The Cerritos Library hosted 10 African American authors at "Ingredients for a Good Read" a book signing and panel discussion this past Sunday.  The event was sponsored by the Orange County Chapter of the Links, Incorporated and the National Black MBA Association.  The room was full of excited people sitting on the edge of their seats, anxious to hear about their books and learn more about their writing and marketing processes.  I had the good fortune of being invited to photograph the event.

It was an exciting afternoon with the moderators Gary Phillips and Pamela Samuels-Young adroitly fielding the audience questions and managing the panel discussions so the audience remained engaged and interested.  

I had as much fun at this event as I usually have when I am working with little children...
