About Sistah’s On Lit
Sistahs On Lit was founded in 2012 as a promoting business for Author’s books. After meeting several authors, and making sure the readers knew about their work, Papaya began to enjoy her new craft. In 2013 Papaya met Cherita King, who is an avid reader along with her husband Charles, who has worked with various vendors and entrepreneurs, and together they hosted a Bottles & Books event with several national best selling authors, which was a success!! Now they have taken on new heights and now hosting their 3rd annual event into a festival in the newly developed Downtown Silver Spring area.
In the past two years, Sistahs on Lit has hosted book signings with several published authors under Wahida Clark, DC Bookdiva, G Street publications, K’wan Write 2 Eat, Life Changing Books LCB Publications, Racquel Williams RWP Publications, Delphine Publications, & Literary Self Publishing Authors including: Blacc Topp, Nene Capri, Thomas Long, Johnna B., Eyone Williams, MackMama, David L, Monica Mathis- Stowe, Nakia Robinson, Tammara Matthews and many more!
Together they showcase authors and have them interact with readers of all ages where they can learn that “Literacy is Life On Paper”!!!
Silver Spring Civic Center
The Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza opened on July 8, 2010. Veterans Plaza is a large public open space that is programmed for festivals and concerts. The annual Silver Spring Jazz Festival is held under the portico at the front of the Civic Building. There is a pavilion on the plaza where the Silver Spring Swings summer concert series is held. Veterans Plaza will include a memorial commemorating the service of veterans of Silver Spring and Montgomery County. The memorial will be a large art work by Toby Mendez, a Frederick County artist who created the Thurgood Marshall Memorial at the State Capitol.
