      FLORIDA BOOK OF THE YEAR!!!

      When I first set out to self-publish my first collection of essays, "Running with Stilettos," my sights were not exactly what you'd call high. All I was really looking for back in 2008 was to get ten copies of my book in 3-D format so that I could give one to each of my four kids, one each to me and my guy, and a few to send out to agents and publishers to take a look at.

      Zora's Triumphs and a Very Happy Birthday

      ‘Striding into the room--jammed with writers and arts patrons, black and white—she flung a long, richly colored scarf around her neck with dramatic flourish as she bellowed a reminder of the title of her winning play: "Colooooooor Struuckkkk!"’ Zora Neale Hurston sure knew how to make an entrance. On May 1, 1925, at a literary awards dinner sponsored by Opportunity magazine, this Harlem...
