We are excited to announce that our Special Feature for Independence Bookstore Day will be Omar Epps, who will be sharing his fantastic books "Nubia: The Awakening" and "Nubia: The Reckoning." This epic fantasy, created by actor and producer Omar Epps and writer Clarence A. Haynes, is enjoyed by both young adults and adults of all ages. It tells the powerful saga of three teenagers, children of refugees from a fallen African utopia, who must learn to use their newfound powers in a climate-ravaged New York City. This book is perfect for fans of Black Panther and "Children of Blood and Bone".

He has gone on to star in the beloved romance Love & Basketball, as Dr. Eric Foreman on House, and as Darnell on This Is Us. Omar Epps plays Malcolm Howard, NYPD Detective and Kanan's biological father in the hit series Power Book III: Raising Kanan.  He is the author of the memoir From Fatherless to Fatherhood and both novels in the Nubia series.

Clarence A. Haynes has worked as an editor for a variety of publishers, including Penguin Random House, Amazon Publishing, and Legacy Lit, an imprint of Hachette Book Group.
