Conversations Book Club Hosts author Alphonso Morgan (Thursday, February 15, 2007)

As part of our "KNOW THYSELF" month, Conversations Book Club is pleased to announce the visit of author Alphonso Morgan to Mississippi!

Morgan will be featured in a booksigning at 4p.m. at Waldenbooks (Metrocenter Mall)where he will be signing his book SONS. Following the signing at 6p.m., Morgan will be at Richard Wright Library in Jackson, MS.

SONS, Morgan's debut novel, is set in Brooklyn in the 1990s. It tells the story of a teenage boy's struggle with his sexuality in the age of Hip-hop. In relentless prose the novel moves from light to dark, through race, culture, class and religion to its tragic climax. In June 2006 the book was praised by www.civilrights.org as a must-read.
