Thank you, Barbara Smith

In New Orleans, I was finally able to meet Barbara Smith. I thanked this caring, vivacious lady for sharing my book with my co-presenter, Lonnell Battle. Barbara is Lonnell's "adopted" daughter. When Lonnell visited she read my book which was in Barbara's guest room. This encounter led to my book being required summer reading for incoming freshmen at Paul VI High School.

We enjoyed two dinners together in New Orleans---what an experience!
Thank you Barbara
