Kwame Alexander, New York Times-bestselling author and 2015 Newberry Medal recipient, will be the featured speaker at this year’s Black Ink: A Charleston African American Book Festival. Alexander will join at least 50 black authors and hundreds of readers for the second annual festival on September 23, 2017, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Main branch of the Charleston County Public Library, 68 Calhoun St. The event is free and open to the public.

Black Ink: A Charleston African American Book Festival’s mission is to support local Black writers, creating a space for them to share their work, discuss their craft, and expose readers all ages to the great variety of African American authors in the area. It will feature author sessions, workshops/seminars, and entertainment.
