When Stanley Clark, 34, revealed his brainchild, For The People Productions, it was known that it was going to be a public relations and marketing firm that provided services which kept it true to its name. His first event was an art show featuring the work of visual artist Gail Ambeau in December 2006. During this event he also was able to donate over $700 in clothes, toys and books to the Good Samaritan Center---thanks in part to his partners in the world of the Arts and Entertainment.

What was next? Before 2006 came to a close, the answer was revealed on Friday, December 29, 2006 at Medgar Evers Library: the CONVERSATIONS BOOK CLUB. It was debuted with an exclusive conference call discussion with National bestselling author Carl Weber and made it clear that this book club was not something to be ignored.

"The Conversations Book Club is heads above any other book club in Mississippi," explains Clark, a native of Pickens, MS. "We not only discuss books by nationally known authors, but bring the authors right into the discussion either in person or via conference call." The book club has already gotten an entire lineup for 2007, which is available on its webpage: www.conversationsbookclub.blogspot.com.

Why Conversations? For The People Productions wanted to be able to connect those who loved books with those who wrote them to give it a more intimate experience. Authors that will be discussed include bestselling authors Nancy Bush (Tuesday, January 9, 2007), Lisa Jackson, Francis Ray, Travis Hunter, Jihad, Mary B. Morrison, Candice Dow, C. Kelly Robinson and many more! The bookclub meets at the Medgar Evers Library every 2nd and 4th Friday from 6-7:30p.m. CST and includes special events on Tuesdays at 6p.m. The format of the book club is that during the first meeting the author's entire body of work is discussed and compared, and then on the second meeting the book club gets to ask the author questions directly either by conference call or in person.

Clark goes on to explain why CONVERSATIONS has something for everyone. "We don't want those who already belong to book clubs to leave their groups. We are just offering an added feature. There is no charge for our book club, however, the participants are responsible for getting their own books."

For The People Productions will officially open their doors in Canton, Mississippi in March 2007, but didn't want to wait until then to let its presence be seen, felt and heard. Its first client, Real Roots Bar and Grill in Pickens, MS (www.realrootsbarandgrill.blogspot.com) , will have a re-grand opening in February 2007.

Look for For The People Productions to be bringing bestselling author Carl Weber to Jackson, MS on Tuesday, January 23rd, Keith Lee Johnson in March 2007, Mary B. Morrison in April 2007, Jihad in July 2007 and many more to be announced.
