On Friday, February 2, 2007 Stanley Clark, President of the fledging public relations organization For The People Productions, will hold a special press conference at the Medgar Evers Library ( 4215 Medgar Evers Blvd) beginning promptly at 10a.m. in the meeting room. This will be the organization's official introduction to the public as well as give FTP the opportunity to share its plans for Mississippi throughout 2007.

"We have accomplished a great deal before our doors officially open," says Clark, 34. He is referring to the fact that the organization has hosted four successful events within the state before its grand opening on Wednesday, February 14, 2007 in Canton, MS. "The press conference will give us an opportunity to lay our our plans for the state as well as talk about the partnerships we have made that will help us in our efforts to better Mississippi one day at a time."

During the press conference Clark will be joined by Ms. Laura Turner, the Librarian for Medgar Evers Library. The public relations firm will be presenting her with four 16" x 20" portraits of Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King, Johnnie Cochran and Oprah Winfrey that have been donated to the library on behalf of Clark.

Clark has been working with Turner and the Medgar Evers Library since December 2006 when he rolled out the Conversations Book Club that meets at the library on Tuesdays and Fridays. The partnership was in association with the Read My Lips Literacy Project that gets lovers of books in touch with the authors they love to read. The program kicked off with a live conference call discussion with national bestselling author Carl Weber.

During the press conference Clark and Turner will talk about the other bestselling authors who have teamed up with them to promote literacy in the city of Jackson as well as other projects the two will be working together to accomplish.

This meeting, scheduled to last no longer than an hour is open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

UPDATE: New Schedule for Carl Weber visit to Mississippi---- Tuesday, January 23, 2007


What better way for a new Marketing/Public Relations firm to introduce itself to the state of Mississippi then by hosting one of the most read authors of urban fiction: National Bestselling author Carl Weber (author of Baby's Mama Drama, So You Call Yourself A Man, She Ain't The One and First Lady).

The literary "Prince of Drama" will be in Mississippi for ONE DAY ONLY in January 2007--- and he will be attending events arranged by For The People Productions and Conversations Book Club, in association with Tricom Publicity Inc.

Join us on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 for a series of carefully selected events geared at promoting reading, writing and the love of books.

The first stop of the day will be at 9:00a.m. when Weber will join FTP at Medgar Evers Library (4215 Medgar Evers Blvd) for a 45 minute meet and greet. During this time he will sign all of his books that carried in the library as well as those brought in by his fans.

The excitement continues to build from 11a.m. to 1:00p.m. during a booksigning at Walden's Books inside the Metrocenter Mall. This is a part of the partnership with For The People Productions and the "Read My Lips" literacy project.

WANT MORE? Then visit the Richard Wright Library (515 McDowell Road) in South Jackson with Carl Weber and For The People Productions as they host a special TEEN TIME program to encourage youth and young adults to pursue their goals and dreams beginning at 4p.m.

After the teen session, Richard Wright Library will then host a meet and greet/book discussion beginning at 6p.m. This will allow them to have unprecedented access to the writer--- asking questions and getting his unique perception of the issues teens face and how he addresses them in his work. These events are free and open to the general public.

This is definitely a series of events you don't want to miss!

CONVERSATIONS Book Club Explodes in Mississippi, bringing book lovers and authors


CONVERSATIONS Book Club Explodes in Mississippi, bringing book lovers and authors together

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.
