The Horn Book booth number is #2960 and the interviews will all take place just across the aisle on the JLG stage. Come early if you want a seat, although each interrogation should not last for more than fifteen minutes or so. Let me know in the comments if you have any good questions for these fine people.

Also, on Monday morning from 11:00AM to noon I will be signing copies of A Family of Readers, my book with Martha Parravano, at the Candlewick booth, #3002.

Ahhh! Now I have more things to had to my busy, busy Sunday.

Buffalo Soldier 9 said...

Stay tune for the epic feature of: “Bass Reeves” US Deputy Marshal. In the mean time; Keep telling that history:

Read the novel, Rescue at Pine Ridge, “RaPR”, a great story of black military history…the first generation of Buffalo Soldiers.

How do you keep a people down? ‘Never’ let them ‘know’ their history.

The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn’t for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry.

Read the novel, “Rescue at Pine Ridge”, 5 stars Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the youtube trailer commercial…and visit the website

I hope you’ll enjoy the novel. I wrote it from my mini-series movie of the same title, “RaPR” to keep my story alive. Hollywood has had a lot of strikes and doesn’t like telling our stories…its been “his-story” of history all along…until now. The movie so far has attached, Bill Duke directing, Hill Harper, Glynn Turman and a host of other major actors in which we are in talks with…see at;

When you get a chance, also please visit our Alpha Wolf Production website at; and see our other productions, like Stagecoach Mary, the first Black Woman to deliver mail for Wells Fargo in Montana, in the 1890’s, “spread the word”.

Roger: re: A Family of Readers. . .are you signing ARCs? I thought the book wasn't out until Sept.

Roger Sutton said...

They must be ARCs then, right? Which also means they are free? (I am such a neophyte even after all these years.)
