City Kid Philly/Boston/Chicago/ATL : Good Hair : VH1 Hip Hop Honors
By Nelson | june 16, 2009 | Post a comment
The City Kid is starting a east/midwest/southern trip to promote his memoir.
Wednesday, June 17th I'm in Philadelphia at the Barnes & Noble at Rittenhouse Square 1805 Walnut Street to talk and read at 6pm.
Tuesday, June 23rd I'm up in the Boston area at the Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard Street, at 7pm.
Thursday, July 16th I travel to Chicago to the Borders at 2210 West 95th Street.
Friday, July 31 I'm doing a talk at the Atlanta Black Arts Festival from 5 to 7pm.
I'll likely end my City Kid related events in September when I appear at the Brooklyn Book Festival the weekend of September 12 and 13.
In non-City Kid news I'll be on a panel at Long Island University Thursday, June 25 about Spike Lee's impact as part of the "Where's Mars?" celebration of the Brooklyn home boy's landmark 'Do the Right Thing' which is 20 years old this summer. Roger G. Smith aka Smiley will be among the Spike collaborators on the panel.
In the fall GOOD HAIR, the documentary I produced with Chris Rock, will be theaters in October. Keep your eye out for more info as the release date gets closer.
Also VH1's Hip Hop Honors, back for its sixth year, will tape at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in September. We're honoring Def Jam Records this year. Lots of great talent is booked with more to come.
I have a couple of other projects up my
sleeve, which I'll talk about later in the year. Until the next blast
-- catch ya down the road.
