Author's Cafe Author’s Cafe was created by Lavon Howard, the CEO & Founder of Path to Greatness. It is to create a platform for authors in the tri-state area to come to the event to tell their story, tell their “why” for the book, and sell their book all on the same night. He wanted authors to be surrounded by other authors who have written books that mean deeply to them. Lavon is an author himself with three books and feels that authors needs to be in an atmosphere where authors are loved, supported, and encouraged to continue their writing going forward. We started on Friday July 8th 2016 with three authors (Mitchell Chance, Natasha Harris Foster, and Tanya Morris) and 177 authors in all have graced the Author’s Cafe stage. We have done 29 Author's Cafes overall.
