J. L. King And EX Wife Host Book Signing

Atlanta (Blacknews.com) -- New York Times best-selling author J.L. King, author of On the Down Low, and Essence best-selling author Brenda Stone Browder, King's ex-wife and author of On the Up and Up: A Survival Guide for Women Living With Men On The Down Low, will host their national speaking tour, "A Conversation of Reconciliation," in Baltimore on Saturday, October 28.

The event, sponsored by Morgan State University's Institute for Urban Research, begins at 7 p.m. and will be held at the New Town High School in Owings Mills, Maryland. Tickets are $15 and are available at various venues. To secure tickets, contact Mischa P. Green at In the Name of Love Character Development Institution at (443) 803-4929 or Morgan State University's Institute for Urban Research at (443) 885-3006 or (443) 885-4800 or Catherine Trotter at New Beginnings Outreach Center at (410) 292-6092.

"A Conversation of Reconciliation" promotes candid and open dialogue between African-American men and women about honesty and betrayal in relationships, issues of men living on the Down Low, the importance of strong families and the role of faith. The dialogue is also aimed at combating the indifference toward HIV and AIDS in the African-American community.

The tour, which was launched in Atlanta on September 17 at the "For Sisters Only" expo, was also presented in New York on October 8 at the "Circle of Sisters" expo. "A Conversation of Reconciliation" is being presented across the country in conjunction with Black churches, historically Black colleges and universities, women's groups, health organizations and other partners. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Lillie Mae Foundation, a family-based foundation that provides financial support for families impacted by HIV/AIDS.
