I showed up in Harlem about an hour early for the reading. It was raining out. But I had bought an umbrella. Umbrella's are brilliant. In Kansas City, we just use cars.
The Hue-Man is around the corner from the Apollo.
They had a poster of my book in the window.
And a dozen books up front.
About a dozen people showed up for the reading, which is actually a pretty good crowd, considering the rain and the 6 p.m. start time. I read for a little bit, and then we got into an interesting discussion. Folks asked great questions. A couple of times I apologized for being depressing, when I would go off on how bad the school system is, but audience members said it was important to know these things.
Afterward, we went to a fabulous Ethiopian restaurant in the west 100s. I think it was called Awash.
