Hey Michael...I wonder if you know my husband.  He is a writer from NY also.  Miles Presha? He grew up on 90th and Columbus. 

Be sure to check out Spike Lee this Saturday--he will be signing books at the Eso Won store in Leimert. (see the events tab for all the details.).  Peace and blessing for 2011!
