Harlem Book Fair

This was the first year in about five years that I didn't attend the Harlem Book Fair. I was exhibiting this year and now that I'm back in Maryland, I didn't fee like making the trip. Anyone out there go this year? Did I miss much?

I missed it too and missed it on C-Span even, but on a few blogs I've read some people were not pleased with the seemingly overwhelming presence of street lit (lol) and its sometimes non-family friendly advertising.

I caught links about it from Tayar Jones' blog

Max Rodriguez of the Harlem Book Fair is a professional conman. Solid Gold Travel has had the unfortunate experience of being conned by him recently, leaving a huge debt and responsibility.

In early 2007, Mr. Rodriguez entered an agreement with the Bermuda Department of Tourism and Solid Gold Travel to sponsor a Cruise to Bermuda for August of 2008. When the time came for Mr. Rodriguez to pay his agreed upon deposit for the Cruise, he submitted 2 consecutive bad checks. After his second check bounced, we reached out to Mr. Rodriguez via phone and email to no response whatsoever. Now, after several months and several attempts to reach him, Mr. Rodriguez will not respond.

In recent conversations, we have found that Mr. Rodriguez has defrauded numerous other businesses and minority organizations.

As minority business owners for over 20 years, we understand the importance and value of the Black Business responsibility and reputation. Max Rodriguez has built a career out of scamming our community and should be held responsible for his actions.

If you or someone you know has been tricked, conned or ripped off by Max Rodriguez of the Harlem Book Fair, we invite you to share your story or contact us at
