Once again The Official “Boss Lady” of the Literary Industry Tamika Newhouse shows us how to celebrate our Literary Legends and newcomers with Style & Grace at her 8th Annual AAMBC Literary Awards Event . The Awards Gala had extensive Media Coverage and “Real Star Power” featuring A-List Celebrities, Writers, Literary Fans and Professionals from across the nation.
Atlanta, GA was a perfect backdrop for a 3 day event (June 10th – 12th) that started off with a Friday Night Mixer and Mass Book Signing featuring over 30 authors and access for *FREE to the screening of the movie “Secrets” .
On Saturday the events started off at 12 o’clock with *Lit Ish: Voices Behind Black Fiction which featured an all male panel.
Then at 5:30pm there was the much anticipated Red Carpet Reception which was followed by The AAMBC Award Show.
To cap off the weekend attendees were treated to The Books and Cocktails event with New York Times Bestselling Authors Reshonda Tate Billingsley and Victoria Christopher Murray.
*Congrats to all of the people who were honored as well as those who won awards.
