Below is an announcement from Wilmington Community Television’s “Book Stew:”
Hello, viewers and listeners! My July guest, Linda Duggins, a co-founder of the Harlem Book Fair, sets off some fireworks when we talk about what it takes for Black and Brown authors to have their works published. Linda has worked as a publicist with a sterling cast of writers, all the way from Tayari Jones to Shaquille O’Neal! She shares her career trajectory from IBM to her current position as VP of Strategic Partnerships at Edelweiss/Above the Treeline, a tech/publishing company. The current state of the industry and the surging interest in authors of color is very much a hot topic.
Check out the links below, and enjoy!
Eileen MacDougall is the host of 100+ episodes of Book Stew, a 30 minute video and podcast devoted to writing in all forms, featuring authors, playwrights, voice artists, poets, and journalists.
