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.
