Queens, NY Author, Writer, Producer & Director Gregory L Hudson Appearing At 2013 Harlem Book Fair
Author of four books, stage plays, screen plays, and tv pilots, this Queens dynamic writer, producer, and director will be among the authors at this year's book fair even though he is currently engaged in a massive project to bring theatre to Queens.
"Wow"! I've been appearing at book signings, festivals, and events around the country and it suddenly dawned on me that ... I had not appeared in a book fair or festival in my own city or state. Make no mistake about it ... this is exciting. Last year in June while appearing at the National Black Book Festival in Houston, Texas, an author asked if I was appearing at the Harlem Book Fair and I was so disappointed that I was missing this wonderful event held in my own back yard. I immediately made plans to attend this year and I will. One of the things that makes this book fair so special to me is that it is an out door event and there is nothing like being involved in an out door event or any kind in New York City --- especially Harlem! Mingling with the people, the food, the culture, the excitement..."
According to QBR's website, "QBR also produces the Harlem Book Fair, the largest African American book Fair nationally, held annually in New York City and throughout the United States.

I'll have all four of my books at my author's table. 'Monologues:
The books, except 48 Poems, are on Kindle, Nook, Sony, and other electronic versions; some for as little as about $7.00. They come in hardcover, paperback and are also available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other book retailers. B&N, Amazon, Google Books all offer limited previews. Readers can see great previews of the books on Hudson's website. http://www.poorpennyproductions.com/
"I am also very excited about a project that I am engaged in to bring quality theatre at an affordable price to my community, Jamaica Queens, NY. It is such a shame that theatre is almost non-existent in Jamaica, Queens. Even sadder is the fact that most would-be theatre goers can't even afford it. If I get my way, a family of five would be able to see quality theatre for about $125.00 ... and still have money left over to go out to dinner. As it stands now, $125.00 might get one ticket to a quality show. Even better ... Jamaica residents would no longer have to travel all the way to Manhattan to see a play. This ... is exciting!"
Hudson who has been in theatre for most of his life is the founder of Poor Penny Productions, Inc. He has a MFA in Performing Arts Management, a BA in theatre, and teaches all aspects of theatre in the New York City Public School System. He teaches professional writing and a very popular writing workshop called, "The Process of Writing". He is also highly respected in the area of copyright infringement and he can be seen in the documentary film trailer on youtube, "Injustice For All: Summary Misjudgment"
