On Saturday, December 1, 2007, beginning at 3:00 p.m., Deuteronomy 8:3 will joyfully host a book signing of The Bond with co-author Margaret Bernstein, which will include a reception and discussion of fatherhood, and the overwhelming absence thereof within our greater community. The discussion will be guided by three men who have been instrumental in sponsoring, developing and sustaining local fatherhood initiatives: Reverend Hilton Smith, Senior Vice President of Turner Construction Company and former chair of the Cleveland Municipal School District; Cuyahoga County Commissioner Peter Lawson Jones; and City of Cleveland Ward 9 Councilman Kevin Conwell.

On the heels of their tremendous success with The Pact, "The Three Doctors," Sampson Davis, George Jenkins and Rameck Hunt, worked with Cleveland based writer Margaret Bernstein to pen their new release, The Bond, in which they recall their own difficulties in navigating inner-city life without the guidance of fathers, as well, they explore the larger communal absentee epidemic.

Plain Dealer feature writer Margaret Bernstein, a Los Angeles native, earned her bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Southern California. As a metro columnist for The Plain Dealer, she won the 1992 first-place column award from he Ohio Society of Professional Journalists.

An award-winning volunteer as well as journalist, Margaret was named the National Big Sister of the Year in 2000 for her work with two Cleveland girls, Cora and Ernestine, through the local Big Sister chapter. She is also a main organizer of the Urban Journalism Workshop, an annual program for high school students sponsored by local journalists. A wife and mother of two, Margaret was blessed to have her father in her life, and we chose the December 1st date for her book signing in honor of his birthday.

The book signing and reception will begin at 3:00 p.m., with the discussion beginning at 3:30. Books can be ordered in advance by phone at (216) 376-9695, or by email at deuteronomy8cafe@aol.com. We encourage advance book reservations.
