Belafonte, George Appear at Marcus Books Events

Marcus Book Store will host Harry Belafonte, who is speaking Nov. 30 at the First Congregational Church in Berkeley. Though the event is already sold out, people may purchase his autobiography, “My Song,” and the book will be autographed. The books can be picked the day following the event.
Nelson George will appear at the Oakland Marcus bookstore to speak and sign his latest novel, “The Plot Against Hip Hop, “Dec. 2 at 6:30 p.m. According to storeowner Blanche Richardson, “Nelson George is a Marcus Books staff and customer favorite.  This novel is a hardboiled tale, jazzed up with authentic street slang and name-dropping. His street credibility shines in this quick moving murder mystery that educates its audience on Hip Hop’s pioneer generation.  A great read!” The book sells for $15.95.
 Marcus Book Store of Oakland is located at 3900 Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The phone number is (510) 632-2344.
