The HOTSPOT Ward 8 Book Festival (Washington D.C.)


The HOTSPOT Ward 8 Book Festival

LaCarey Entertainment, LLC is proud to announce that we are bringing the first book festival to Ward 8 in Southeast Washington, DC. The HOTSPOT~ Book Festival will be held on Saturday June 15th, 2013 at 1202 W Street, SE. The corner of MLK, Jr., Ave. and Chicago Street SE across from the famous D.C. landmark “The Big Chair”. Lamont Carey, the President and CEO of LaCarey Entertainment created The HOTSPOT as a way to combat illiteracy and to make published authors (especially local authors) accessible to impoverished communities where we can ignite the desire to read, write and support the aspirations of authors. We need your support.

LaCarey Entertainment, LLC has made a difference in communities by providing individuals with opportunities to experience their dreams in the arts. We offer a variety of creative services that center around developing confident and creatively dynamic artists. The HOTSPOT furthers our mission of supporting artists reach their fullest potential by bringing authors and publishers into impoverished communities where high illiteracy rates exist. This event aims to inspire a passion for reading and writing as the authors create a lasting impact on the lives of people who don’t normally read or have the opportunity to meet published authors’. The HOTSPOT also provides an opportunity for the authors and community to interact and communicate through relevant panel discussions, booth presence and the availability of authors books for purchase.

We are expecting to attract over 500 book lovers and residents from around the DMV.

Funded by DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities
