Join the authors of the Where Do We Go From Here series for an intimate chat in Little Rock, Arkansas!  Today (October 19) at 11:30am at Pyramid Art, Books, and Custom Framing.

This will be the first promotional stop for the release of the final book in Jae Henderson and Mario D. King’s contemporary fiction series. “From Here to There” reveals how Tee and Marcus are dealing with a newborn baby, Chanel, Marcus’ soon-to-be baby momma, and Jackson, a mutual friend who wants to break all the rules and become more than friends with Tee. What was supposed to be an uncomplicated friends with benefits arrangement has turned into anything but that! Throw in Tee’s hilarious gangsta Grammy and you’ve got one heck of a tale.

Twenty dollars will get you VIP treatment with an autographed copy of “From Here to There,” lunch, libations and a special gift. If you haven’t read the first two books, “Where Do We Go From Here” and Where Do We Go From Here II” we encourage you to do so.

Pyramid Books, Art & Custom Framing is one of the few African American owned bookstores in the country. This one is especially unique because it also houses a beautiful art gallery that regularly features works by men and woman of color. The owners Dr. Archie & Garbo Hearne pride themselves on sharing their love of literature and art with others and encouraging people of color to build wealth by investing in art.

LR Cultural Touchstone: Garbo Hearne

garboGarbo Watson Hearne has moved from nurturing patients as a nurse to nurturing artists and art collectors.  As the Director of Pyramid Art, Books & Custom Framing and Hearne Fine Art, she has been cultivating artists and collectors for over 25 years.

In 1988, Garbo left her nursing career to establish Pyramid Gallery.  Over the years, the business has expanded its focus and changed locations.  Since 2010, she has been located in the historic Dunbar neighborhood.   Over the years, she has championed local, regional and national African American artists and authors. She has introduced many emerging artists to established collectors.  Having her as a champion has allowed some artists to be able to take risks and to move into different mediums or styles.

The 2010 move to Dunbar positioned Garbo’s businesses (as well as the medical practice of her physician husband) to be anchors in the newly designated Dunbar Historic Neighborhood.  That neighborhood seeks to maintain its historic structures and return to its roots as a mix of residential and office space.  In 2008, she and her husband, Dr. Archie Hearne, published Collaborations, Two Decades of African American Art: Hearne Fine Art 1988 – 2008.

Hearne has served on the board of directors of the Mid-America Arts Alliance, National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, the Arkansas Arts Council (including a term as Chair) and the board of the Arkansas Humanities Council.
