C. A. Webb Presents... "Separate But Equal: African American Authors in Today's Bookstores, Part 2"

Join Cyrus A. Webb of Conversations Book Club and Conversations LIVE! Radio for Part 2* of his discussion "Separate But Equal: African American Authors in Today's Bookstores". Joining Webb will be authors Evie Rhodes, Carleen Brice, Joey Pinkney, Tony Lindsay and Roy Glenn.

The discussion will take place live on Sunday, September 13, 2009 @ 6p.m CST (7p.m. EST/4p.m. PT) for the hour and will include your thoughts through the phone line and chatroom. Among the issues talked about will be the following:

1)How do you think a segregated section has affected your sales and audience personally?
2)How is any form of segregation accepted today as a "good thing"?
3)For readers who say it provides convenience, is it really just a sign of laziness that is negatively affecting book sales?
4)What role does the publisher play in making the playing field in bookstores more level?
5)How far are you willing to go to reach out to a wider audience of readers?
