The Minnesota Black Authors (MBAE) is an annual event that promotes and supports established Black authors of all ages and genres. The expo creates a bustling community space where educators, lovers of literature, and authors come to network. Authors are given a platform to sell their books and interact directly with the community. Expo attendees benefit by having the opportunity to see the latest literature from Black writers in Minnesota and purchase books directly from the authors. This family-friendly event is always highly-anticipated by authors and expo attendees alike.
