African-American Read In spotlights La Joyce Brookshire

with 2 comments

The Wakulla County Christian Coalition, The Wakulla County Public Library and the Black History Month Festival (BHM) are hosting this year’s African-American Read-In Chain at the Wakulla Public Library from 3-5 pm. Sunday afternoon, February 3, 2008.

La Joyce Brookshire, nationally known author of “Faith Under Fire, Betrayed By Love” a  chronicle of the author’s dilemma of having married a man who had AIDS yet kept it hidden from her until no longer able to do so, will sign copies of her book and make a presentation. 

The Read-In Chain had its genesis in November 1989 when the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) agreed to sponsor a nation-wide Read-In on the first Sunday of February.  The purpose was to make literacy a part of traditional Black History Month activities.  At the request of educators, it was hoped that  the African American Read-Ins would become a traditional part of Black History Month celebrations.

  1. I have written a fictional novel called “Shaded Canvas”. I am interested in shopping the book around for a movie venture and am interested in using the services of Mrs. La Joyce Bookshire as I go about this endeavor. A segment of the novel “Shaded Canvas” also deals with AIDS. God has given me a vision. I believe that I have a bestseller as a book and movie deal.
