“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.” — Kalu Ndukwe Kalu
ALL OF US WILL LEAVE LEGACY: THE QUESTION IS WHAT WILL THAT LEGACY BE?
Bonding Thru Books Literary Festival, a totally online book festival, was created to start a national conversation about what we want our literary legacy to be. Each night we will discuss how we can use the leaders, icons and storytellers of today, to create body of works that will assist emerging writers and authors in being more responsible with their work and positions.
Everyone has a story! But, does that story have a purpose? What will the people in your life say about you after you are gone? What does your story hold for future generations? Let’s create a life, a story, a journey that others will want to emulate!
PURPOSE OF BONDING THRU BOOKS:
We’re hosting this online book festival to connect avid readers with the authors of quality books, written with a purpose. Each year thousands of people – educators, concerned parents, community leaders, authors, poets and publishers – devote their time and resources to presenting the reader with great books! However, too many outstanding books do not get the attention and reader support that they deserve. We want to help with this situation, as we encourage readers to purchase books to give as gifts 365 days a year.
Call into BAN Radio Show each night 8-10pm EST to join the discussion with authors, book reviewers, bloggers and industry insiders. The panelists will talk about their motivation for supporting our literary legacy, how they became modern day griots, how they crafted a unique story, how authorship has affected their career, platform, or has expanded their reach.
