I'm the author of a new book, Harlem Son, a memoir about growing up in New York City starting in the 1950's. I am planning a college book tour and I would like to include Fordham to that list. I can forward a copy of the book to your office in the hope that I can be part of a campus program in the near future, Best, Kevin 917 805 4869 posted Oct 10th, 2009 12:09 pm
