Off to Salt Lake City...

Thanks to the University of Utah's Ethnic Studies Program, I will be part of a panel called "Contemporary Creative Voices: Black Male Writers Discuss Masculinity and Hip Hop."

The panelists include Michael Datcher, Mel Donalson, Jervey Tervalon, and myself, Fred Smith. There will be food, drink, and a reception featuring Senegalese artist Djibril N'Doye and "I Am Because We Are" exhibit.

Event details: Friday, April 13 from 7 - 9 pm. Location: Distinctive African American Art & Premier Gallery, 357 South 200 East, Salt Lake City (north of the City Library and Trax Station). (801) 533-8373.

So... I need some of you with friends, colleagues, online friends, etc... in SLC area to get them to the University of Utah-sponsored event on Friday, April 13 evening and Saturday, April 14 morning for our talk and writing workshops.

UTAH, Sounds cute. What is there to do there besides your event?

Maybe you could do a photo album displaying how wonderful Utah is; and, make it the new hot tourist spot.(LOL) You already do a great job of LA and Detroit.
