Book Signing: Ed Maliskas - John Brown to James Brown

John Brown to James Brown delves into a distinctively American saga as it unfolds on one small piece of farm property in rural Western Maryland. It is on this site that: ~John Brown led the raid on Harper’s Ferry, touching off the Civil War and sparking the abolition of slavery; ~The Black Elks purchased and developed the property a century later to create a memorial to Brown; ~The giants of rhythm and blues performed—including James Brown, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, the Drifters, and scores of others. These stories, intertwined with those of a gifted promoter and thousands of young people who experienced early R&B music at John Brown’s Farm, bring to life an ideal that heralded in America’s founding documents and still beats in the heart of mankind today—-liberty!

Book Signing: James Bowers Johnson - The End of Justice & The Ledge

The End of Justice is a fresh and critical review of the criminal and justice systems. Mr. Johnson offers a premise as to why and how America is the most incarcerated country in
the world. The Ledge is a work that uniquely examines the value of struggle and suffering in life. From a perspective that fathers are critical for the affirmation of children, this
book offers the tangential intricacies of the challenges we confront. The story is one of a son who faces the struggle to jump from a ledge into a pool of water, a leap that is examined by a father. Meet the Author! NONFICTION
