Award winning novelist Clyde Ford reads an excerpt from his latest work, Precious Cargo at Hue Man Bookstore.
In September Clyde Ford was in town for a book signing and a video presentation for his new book, Precious Cargo at Hue Man Bookstore in Harlem. The video was an interesting production, because it involved studios in the East coast and the west coast, where the action in this nautical thriller takes place. The video used many well known actors to read excerpts, including Ruby Dee, who was present at Hue Man (she's visible at different spots in this video) and Morgan Freeman, among others. The novel is set in the San Juan Islands area of Washington State, and like his previous mystery novel, the private eye Charlie Noble is the main character.
