On Tuesday, October 20, I’ll be delivering a talk about Alex Haley at the Santa Clara Central Park Library. The lecture is sponsored by the Santa Clara County Historical and Genalogical Society. It is part of their monthly meeting, which begins at 6:00 p.m. (includes refreshments). My lecture will begin at 6:30 p.m. The meeting and lecture is free and open to the public. Books will be available for sale and autograph afterwards.
In other news, the producers of the Roots remake announced that Oscar award-winning actor Forrest Whitaker will be playing the role of Fiddler. In the original mini-series, Louis Gossett, Jr., played Fiddler, a for which he earned an Emmy. Read more about it here.
And finally, I have completed a rough draft of my next book, Under One Roof. The story takes place in St. Petersburg, Florida, which I will be visiting later this year to learn more about the city itself and conduct additional interviews.
