WASHINGTON, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 14, 2013 New York Times Best Selling Author and Activist Sister Souljah will headline a Global Summer Reading Initiative discussing a highly anticipated follow up to her book "Coldest Winter Ever." This new novel, "A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story" (Emily Bestler Books/Atria; ISBN: 978-1439165317) will be the central topic of discussion for young people across the globe, as they come together to discuss and encourage the importance of Summer Reading. The presentation and book signing will be held at the ARC Theater in Washington, D.C. with an interactive real time broadcast to students in attendance at the United States Embassies in Soweto, South Africa, Harare Zimbabwe and Accra Ghana.
The Global Book Talk will begin at 9 a.m. with an interview conducted by event host Mocha Ochoa of The Oracle Group; a Q&A session with students in Washington, D.C., Soweto, Harare and Accra where these students will be afforded an opportunity to interact with the author and each other in real time. A book signing will immediately follow the book talk. This auspicious event is produced by The Oracle Group, an international literary event production company.
Sister Souljah is best known for her work as a political activist and educator of underclass urban youth. A graduate of Rutgers University, she is a beloved personality in her own community. She lives in New York with her husband and son.
The Global Book Talk with Sister Souljah event will take place during the end of the school year when families prepare for summer activities. According to Mocha Ochoa, Principal of The Oracle Group "We are excited to expose inspiring cultural icons like Sister Souljah to highly underserved audiences who may not get the everyday opportunity to engage with Best Selling Authors. Further, our intent is to also have student groups actively engage with each other through literary programming on a digital platform in which new and innovative ways encourage young people to continue an interest in literature during their time off from school".
