Underground Books: Programs & Events

Event

Willie Simon “Waiting for My Ride”
Discussion and Book Signing

Each day I wake to see the light of day. Be it a good day or a not-so-good day or a bad day, I realize it is the best day of my life, and I will rejoice in that day. I will not worry about yesterday or tomorrow. Yesterday will never come again, and tomorrow will be twenty hours, fifty-nine minutes, and fifty-nine seconds away. The closest I will ever get to tomorrow is twenty three hours, fifty-nine minutes, and fifty-nine seconds. With life, all things are possible. If I have life, I must LIVE.

Event

Suzette Harrison “My Joy”
Discussion and Book Signing

Joy Matthews isn’t afraid of risks. She’s quit her Fortune 500 job and enrolled in culinary school, chasing her dream. Joy wants her own couture cake boutique. Pursuing her dream by day, Joy pays the bills working nights at The Hourglass—an exclusive gentlemen’s club catering to patrons who enjoy “a little extra fine on a woman’s frame.” Joy’s catching up to her dream when a chance encounter reconnects her with Quinton Daley, a childhood friend. Mutual attraction throws the proverbial wrench in Joy’s relationship-phobic, happily agnostic life.
