Last night, I went to Porter Square Books to pick up a copy of "So You Want to Talk About Race," which I had ordered last week when I was there to read from and sign copies of my book.
I discovered that Denise Dubois was to read from her book "Self-Made Woman" at 7 PM, so I stuck around. Not only was it worth it, but after it was over, I mentioned that I had just presented my book a week ago, and two people bought copies of my book from the store on the spot!
Afterwards, Denise and a number of others went over to Christopher's for dinner and I joined them. A very nice night indeed, and completely unplanned!
I'm a social activist who still needs to pay the mortgage, eat, and do the laundry. But, more than that, I'm a love activist. I want to make life better without having to say there's anything wrong with it now.
