Author, Daniel O. Black


Members of the African American Authors Book Group attended the discussion of "The Sacred Place" on April 28, 2009 at the Ypsilanti Distric Library. It was a wonderful night of discussions, good food, and picture taking with the invited author, Daniel Black from Atlanta.

Mr. Black graciously accepted by request to attend our discussion on his second novel "The Sacred Place" We communicated by e-mail, text and as the days narrowed in, by phone. Upon Mr. Blacks' request to surprise the group, we were well into our discussion when he surprised the group and made his entrance into the room, where we all sat in a circle. What a wonderful surprise and a wonderfully written book.
My husband made an Italian soup and served old fashion Faygo sodas' with fruit and vegetable trays and cheesecakes for dessert. Yuuummmy.

The Motown Review Book Club was the invited guests to the discussion. All members had already read the book and stated in an interview with http://www.apooobooks.com/ that their favorite read author for 2008 was Daniel Black. Also, the author they would like to have dinner with was Daniel Black.

It was a wonderful time had by all. We are awaiting his third novel due to be released in November of 2009 titles "Perfect Peace".

If you have not read any of his books, you must pick it up, either from a bookstore, library or borrow from a friend, you must read it.
