Harlem Book Fair/Creative Challenge 5

My girl delaleuverses sent this info to me. Just passing it on.

The 8th annual Harlem Book Fair will be held on Saturday, July 22, on West 135th Street, between 5th and 7th Avenues, from 11 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Publishers, writers, literacy vendors will exhibit and author panel discussions will be televised by C-Span's Book TV. Opening the book fair's festivities will be the Wheatley Book Award ceremony on Friday, July 21, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, a branch of the New York Public Library. This year's awardees will be announced on Thursday, July 13, at the Harlem Book Fair Media Reception, held at Commerce Bank in Harlem.
This year the Harlem Book Fair proudly inaugurates the International Pavilion, broadening the scope and footprint of the fair. Publishers from Africa, Australia, England, and Canada will be in attendance offering provocative and scholarly titles of interest to the most discerning of readers.
The Harlem Book Fair is free and open to the public. Please email to rsvp@qbr.com to reserve seating for the Wheatley Award program.

Creative Challenge 5

Don't forget to vote on your favorite submission for the Creative Challenge 4. See 7/13 post below.

The theme for CC5 is "Juvenile Style" This theme was submitted by shawnqt. The idea is to take a situation in your life now (i.e. love, rant, family, etc) and tell and/or illustrate it using drawings like those of a kindergartener. As always, feel free to push the boundaries of the topic.

Per request the time period between each challenge has been extended. They will now be two a month. One due on the 15 and the other on the 30. The deadline for CC5 entries is 7/30.
