2007 has been a busy year for Stanley Clark and his new event planning organization For The People Productions. The 34 year old native of Pickens, MS began the year by teaming up with new partners such as Wal-Mart, Waldenbooks, Tricom Publicity and even High Output bike club to find ways to expose the state to new projects and unique opportunities. One of the projects that has gotten the most traction has been with Conversations Book Club and its fight against illiteracy.

"To hear a young person say they hate to read is one of the saddest things anyone can say," says Clark. "Books have a way of opening up doors to worlds that otherwise might be closed to them, and if they don't take the opportunity to explore them they are missing out." Working with C. A. Webb, the President of Conversations Book Club, Clark decided to help find ways that books can be both exciting and entertaining.

"We both agreed that the key is sometimes finding the right book for the appropriate reader," says Webb, 31. "Alot of times when someone says they don't like to read, the real problem is that they haven't found a book on the topic they are interested in." Conversations Book Club, which meets every Tuesday and Friday at the Medgar Evers Library (6p.m CST) uses its hour discussions with authors to address not only the books but the process that goes into writing a book.

It is for this reason that a special press conference has been scheduled for Friday, April 27, 2007 to announce an exciting new project geared at engaging readers with the authors that are making a mark on the literacy scene. This will take place at the Pearl Public Library at 11a.m. with presentations by Stanley Clark, C. A. Webb and others that will be working on the new campaign geared at fighting illiteracy.

Admission is free.
