Miamis Rising Star Author/Playwright Jonathan Spikes Hosts Book Signing Party

Thu, 3 May 2012 10:19:41 EST

Miami, Florida - May 3, 2012 -- South Florida native son, Jonathan Spikes, will read from his powerful new novel, "I Know What I Am and I Am Not What You Call Me," during a book signing party Wednesday, May 30 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the African American Research Library and Cultural Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. 

Spikes is a multi-talented writer and respected youth advocate who speaks to the core of readers. 'I Know What I Am and I Am Not What You Call Me," is the story of Damon McBlessed, a man who is constantly at war with himself as he attempts to define who he is, not only to himself, but to God, his family, and his culture.

Reared in Miami, Florida for most of his life, Jonathan Spikes has had the opportunity to experience many things both positive and challenging which has helped him to define his own way and chart his own course. This young novelist, entrepreneur and former corporate trainer, is expanding his wings and flying to new heights with his first literary work of art. I Know What I am and I am Not What You Call Me, is loosely based on personal events and encounters that Jonathan, himself has experienced. Even in the most difficult situations, he's discovered that love always abounds. Spikes says it took a life's journey and the kindness of others to help make that love manifest itself in ways that were often times unfamiliar or foreign.

The title 'I Know What I am and I am Not What you Call Me,' is inspired by his son Jamari who was playing with his playmates when they got into a name calling match. Jamari told his playmate 'I Know What I Am and I Am Not THAT!  What You Call Me.'  What powerful words from the mouth of babes,
