  1. i would like to be in touch with ms. wilkerson. not being a pulitzer prize-winning journalist, i self-published my book in december 2009. it is also narrative nonfiction about the little-known community of african-americans who built atlantic city, new jersey. i use my family’s restaurant business as the centerpiece to tell the story of a vibrant community, but i begin with my grandparents’ lives in rural virginia in the 20’s. i was shocked when i heard about ms. wilkerson’s book on npr. the universe definitely had us in sync, though my book is only 1/5 the size of hers. local and county govt, family and comm. orgs have been absolutely delighted with my book and very supportive. i just began reading warmth of other suns and am enjoying it immensely already. i can hardly wait to meet and talk with ms.wilkerson, hopefully in 2011.
