Our founder Rhonda Crowder, author of the recently released novel Riddles, is honored to be among “The Black Pen” featured authors at Mac’s Backs Books in Cleveland Heights, Ohio this upcoming Sat.
Not only is it her first appearance as a published author, Crowder has known organizer Brendan Whitt since he interned under her at the Call and Post Newspaper during his senior year at Horizon Science Academy. And, she’s followed award-winning author Everett Prewitt’s career as a journalist.
Whitt is now a graduate student in the Masters of Arts in creative writing program at Cleveland State University, where he also completed his undergraduate studies. Organizing a reading has always been one of Whitt’s goals since becoming an author.
“I am very proud of Brendan and all he’s accomplished as a young man,” said Crowder. “He published a book before me! It’s been a pleasure watching him develop as a writer and author. I’m flattered that he thought enough to call upon me for his first event.”
Crowder and Whitt along with Prewitt is sure to bring forth a lively discussion as they read excerpts from their works and talk about their journey as writers. Representing three different generations, the range of experience between these authors is expansion.
If you’re in the Cleveland area, be sure to join them.
