My Mobile Store
Those of you who are already subscribed to my newsletter know what I’m about to say, but for everyone else, it’s is a heads-up. On June 5th, 2022, I started selling my books on the streets of New York city.
This is something I’ve been working on for months. Today, I can proudly say, I’m officially a street vendor. Yah. That means I made sure to get all my paperwork filed and in order with with city and state, blah, blah, blah, so I can try to increase my readership and fanbase.
If you’d like to swing by to say hello and/or perhaps even pick up a paperback, I’ve posted below the places and events where I will be over the next few weeks.
You’ll note it’s not an exhaustive list. This is mostly because I’m new to this and still learning the ropes and making contacts. By that I mean what are the best places to sell and what events I should try to get into. Now, before I get into that, if you’re not subscribed to my newsletter but you’d like to be, you can do so if you click here. If you subscribe you’ll gain access to all of this information about me, often before anyone else.
List of Venues/Events
I have not made a decision about where I’ll be stationed if I’m not doing an event yet. However, two places that are definitely on my radar is The Market At The Brooklyn Museum. I invite you to click the link below for more information.
On some Sundays I plan to be at Union Square, located at the 14th Street subway line stop in Manhattan.
That location is perhaps best known for its Farmer’s Market. However, the farmers, for the most part, are not there on Sunday. A host of other vendors and craftspeople always are though. I mean even on the main days when the farmers are present. Those days are Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
If you’d like to keep tabs on whether I’ll be there on a given Sunday, I suggest keeping in contact with me via social media. The platform I check the most is Twitter, so for the fastest possible reply to any questions you may have, do click here to follow me. For all of my other social media links, click here.
Juneteenth Father’s Day Celebration
Sistas’ Place in association with The Cooperative Culture Collective is holding a Juneteenth Father’s Day show on Sunday June 19, from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM. I’ll have a table there. If you have no plans for that day, I invite you to come on down.
The International African Arts Festival
This year’s 51st International African Arts Festival will be from Friday, July 1 through Monday, July 4th. This is a major, I mean a big time event, and yours truly will be there.
Here’s an excerpt from the promoter eventbrite.com’s website:
