Book Signing at Barnes and Noble - Greenville, NC.

On July 20th, I was a part of a community event at the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in Greenville, North Carolina that celebrated local North Carolina authors. Along with myself, there were other authors such as LaDena Renwick Tilley (A Woman Called Job), Worth Forbes (From the Ground Up) and L. Diane Wolfe (James). All of us gave a brief overview of our books and then addressed questions from the great audience in the store.

A few of my colleagues from the Anthropology Department and the Public Health program at East Carolina University were in the audience as well as friends from the College of Arts and Communications. Finally, of course my wife, Gloria was present taking pictures.

Book Signing in Wilberforce, Ohio!

On July 2, 2006, I received a surprised book signing event in my home town of Wilberforce, Ohio. My mother organized the entire event. Family members, community members and church members all attended this event and it looked like everyone enjoyed it.

I signed all of the books, enjoyed greeting everyone and expressing my thanks for their hometown support for my latest book -- Food Choice and Obesity in Black America.

Additionally, the local newspaper -- Xenia Daily Gazette -- ran a feature story highlighting this local book signing event.

This event was a major success and I am glad that all family members and friends came.
