I'm only getting started with the report. I have a lot of video to edit. Just jammed up preparing for BEA.
Thanks for sharing your perspective. I will share this thread with the organizers. Cushcity is all about Black folks working together for our mutual benefit. In fact, Gwen Richardson, co-owner of CushCity wrote a book on the subject:Why African-Americans Can't Get Ahead: And How We Can Solve It with Group Economics
I'm convinced that they were interested in the event being successful. Of course, anyone who has organized fairs knows it is not easy. I think this first effort was quite commendable.
Hen81, how would you go about determining the optimum number of authors to have at an event? WOuld you estimate the ratio between attendees and authors, author per square foot, or some other mechanism?
Here is a shot of author Victor McGlothin with Sisters of the Women of Wisdom book club from Charlotte, NC.
Victor was a featured author but he still worked the crowd. He spoke with authors, readers (show will sisters from a book club) and even brought books.
