"I Ain't Lying: Stories from West Philly to West Africa"

Book Signing on Friday, October 3rd!

For those of you in the Philadelphia area, you may want to check out Anthony C. Davis’s book signing for First Friday. Tribal Home Gallery will host the affair for Anthony’s latest publication,“I Ain’t Lying: Stories from West Philly to West Africa.” The location is: 56 North Third Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106. For more detailed information, call Tribal Home Gallery at: (215) 592-4215. Refreshments and African drumming will be in the mix. Readings will commence at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Even if you aren’t in town for Friday’s reading and signing, I highly recommend this book. I read it from cover-to-cover and was completely engaged with the turning of each page. Anthony’s descriptive language made me feel as if I was experiencing each episode myself. I laughed and cried and sighed. There were stories about living on Alden Street in West Philadelphia; there were stories about going to Catholic School; there were stories about going to an HBCU (Historically Black College/University); there was the very spiritual story about his journey to Africa. . . and so much more. You’ll just have to read it for yourself. (The publisher is Publish America/Baltimore. You can order your copy at: http://www.publishamerica.com/.) Asante Sana. Peace & Blessings Always.
