A Writer's Workshop for this Millennium's Harlem Renaissance at Hue-Man Bookstore
NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- There is a new culture emerging in Harlem that closely mirrors that of the Harlem Renaissance. It is no coincidence that Oprah Winfrey has produced "Their Eyes Are Watching God" at a time when the cultural life and commercial revival of Harlem could not be hotter. You don't have to be a Harvard educated, award-winning poet and author like Ruth-Miriam Garnett to know this! However, Ms. Garnett does know it, and emerging writers who have been visiting a mecca of a different kind, know it also. Ms. Garnett, whose debut novel, Laelia (Simon & Schuster/Atria Books) was released earlier this year, offers the first in a series of multiple genre workshops specifically to foster an environment for these emerging writers. Beginning October 12th, The Harlem Workshop will be held at Hue-Man Bookstore, the best known African American bookstore in the country.
