There are some things you dream about doing and one of my dreams is about to come true. This week I am having a book event at The Bunch of Grapes bookstore on Martha’s Vineyard. Why would an event on a small island in the dead of summer make me so happy? As a child I spent countless hours in that bookstore during summers my family spent on The Vineyard. MVY has a long tradition of being a summer haven for African Americans, all kinds of African Americans. Both of my parents were laid to rest in the Oak Bluffs cemetery on the island. And I hope my son will have many happy summers there. It is the closest thing I have to a hometown at this point. If you are on the island, please come!
