"The Lord has done great things for us,

The Honorable Annie M. Mickens




The overcast skies had to give way to the warmth, fervor and excitement felt throughout the day for the wonderful festivities of the:



2009 Life Through Literature



held today, October 10, 2009.

Author, Linda Mose Meadows happily participated in

Author's Pavilion!


It was indeed an awesome community literary event! Kudos to City of Petersburg, Mayor Annie M. Mickens, the Petersburg Public Library System, its sponsors and a host of vendors, literary characters and some soulful entertainers!




Wonderful, wonderful is just what this day was. It was exhilarating to be in the company of such esteemed authors as: Karen Winston (Lindula Finds Joy), John Bryan (Take Me Fishing), Amina Luqman-Dawon (Afro-Americans of Petersburg), Elvetrice Parker Belches (Black America Series: Richmond), Charles Lee (Preacher Man), Walton Graham (Critter Crossing), Rev. Angel E. White (In the Beginning God) and my wonderful friend: Editor and Founder of Tools For Life, Ronette Jacobs. These authors were provided an opportunity to showcase their projects and publications. We shared our literary publishing experiences, read excerpts of our work and entertained questions. It was an opportunity to learn, share and celebrate a realized dream.




Children and adults had a ball interacting with Dr. Sesus' Cat In The Hat and Curious George mascots. Books galore were available to everyone! It was a book lovers haven. Everyone was encouraged to take as many books as their arms could carry! No doubt Poplar Lawn Park was the perfect sight to host an upbeat family friendly event. The overall atmosphere chased the gray clouds away and graciously invited the sun to stay a while, beckoned authors to continue framing and building their works and conveyed to book lovers that The Petersburg Library has a heart purposed for literacy enrichment!




Was this community appreciative? Just ask the little boy walking with his tiger painted face, wearing his unique ballon crown and clutching his precious book? I am sure his answer is a resounding, "Yep!" Surely it was evident to on-lookers as the little guy walked with his own book glued to his little face. Friends, it's confirmation enough for me-that books delight and enrich us!




I knew that if the festival event planners needed a report card or an indicator for sucess, they only needed to visually survey the park particpants and note that practically everyone gleefully held several books; free books of their own choosing. Books that they'd take home and call their own! I contend that indeed the 2009 Life Through Literature Festival was a super success! Job well done!
