Meeting Colson Whitehead

Categories: tagged!

When I walked into the B & N Studio to meet Colson Whitehead I was immediately struck by his complete coolness.  I don't just mean in how he looked... which was very attractive. It was his whole demeanor.  He is the guy you want to hang out with because you will seem cool just being in his company.  He is intelligent, articulate and funny. 


Summer is a fantastic time for reading and Sag Harbor is the perfect antidote for these tough economic times because you may not be able to afford a trip to the beach, but you can experience it through Colson Whitehead's prose.

I was fortunate enough to read Sag Harbor for first look and was very impressed with Colson by not only how much time he spent with us but his thoughtful and intelligent answers to all our questions. He was very willing to "hang" out with us too. His writing style was unique and the story and characters are memorable and all in all was a great experience for me and a lot of other first lookers as well. BTW it doesn't hurt that he is a "hottie".
