Phinesse Demps | 2/6/2015, 6 a.m.
Winter time is great time to get caught up on some reading. This week we have two books for you to purchase and add to your collection:
No Cell Phone Day by Delfeayo Marsalis: Not only can the Marsalis family play some great music, but they are also authors. Delfeayo Marsalis steps up with his book, which might be considered a children’s book, but it really is for the entire family. Cell phones are so popular that people no longer talk to one another or they are too busy on a phone that they miss out on what is really important. “Life, Family, and Friends. No Cell Day” shows the kind of things one can do when one takes a day off from new technology. Everyone should designate a day to turn off your cell phone and just chill. Pick up your copy at Amazon.com.
Surrender by Karega Bailey: Sometimes a movement can be started with words. Local author and educator, Karega Bailey, has written a very poetic and profound book. Using his knowledge and love of hip-hop, spirituality, and more importantly his love for the community, Bailey encourages readers to see themselves for who they are. A couple of his standout poems are “Can I Get Enough” and “Symbols Speak Loud.” To order his book, visit: www.facebook.com/karega.bailey.
