- DeKalb Library Foundation's Blugrass Evening
It's the first Monday of March, which means Bernard Setaro Clark and Gina Rickicki are back with NAKED CITY for another evening of unrestrained, unorthodox debauchery at the Goat Farm. This month's theme? BANG/WHIMPER. Competitors have five minutes to make their point or are forced to face the Wheel of Death. $10-25 pay-what-you-can at the door.
A biweekly writing workshop for writers of every make and model: essayists, poets, novelists - all are welcome. Take the opportunity to bond over the written word and get to know community, with or without writing in tow.
Partnering with the Carter Center Library and the Ossabaw Island Educational Alliance, the Georgia Center for the Book hosts author Paul Presley for a discussion of colonial Georgia and its integration into British Caribbean trade.
Dennis Kimbro addresses a wealth of economic travesty in his book The Wealth Choice: Success Secrets of Black Millionaires. The result of seven years of study of a thousand of the nation's wealthiest African-Americans, the book takes an honest and direct approach to the socioeconomic impact of the economic crisis on the African-American community at-large.
