Jamaican Born Author Curtis Webley Featured in Book Signing in Hempstead, New York

(PRWEB via PR Web Direct) May 6, 2005 – Jamaican born Curtis Webley, author of "Surviving in America," will be presenting a book signing on May 21, 2005 at Best Sellers Book Store, 43 A Mains Street, Hempstead, N.Y. The book signing will begin at 2:00 pm.

 “  Surviving in America  
"Surviving in America" explores contrast in Jamaican and American culture. Afro-American culture is often perceived as a singularly homogenous ingredient in the melting pot that is America. Yet within the Black community exist a multitude of independent, yet interwoven, subcultures. Authentic fifth generation Afro-Americans, Caribbeans, African immigrants, southerners, northerners, professionals, gangsters, workers, superstars, rich and poor, and more, are part of the fabric of the American Black experience. These threads, whether they combine or clash, overlap or overshadow, complete a tapestry that evokes the Black American Experience.

Curtis Webley grasps two strong threads to weave an intricate story taken from that fabric in "Surviving in America." Two Jamaican boys immigrate to America. Amin and Ragweed begin on similar paths: both are poor and fatherless, raised in rural Jamaica. Both long to live in America. Their lives diverge then intersect again and again, as they assimilate into American culture. Amin, solid and sensible, is the model of the hardworking, mainstream and upwardly mobile, immigrant. He follows the tried-and-true patterns of immigrants before him, weaving his way through education

, a marriage and professional success. Ragweed's story is different. Drugs, crime, prison and illegitimate children with multiple mothers become the dimensions that define Ragweed's life. A book greater than the stories of these two men's lives, "Surviving in America" explores Jamaican and American culture, nature and nurture and the hopes, dreams and failures that plague us all.

Curtis Webley emigrated from Jamaica to the United States in 1975. He received a B.S. in Accounting from Roosevelt University (1981), his C.P.A. in Illinois (1992) and his M.S. in Taxation from the Washington School

 of Law (1995). Currently, Webley is a freelance writer, an adjunct professor of accounting and income taxes at colleges throughout Chicago, Controller of Spiral of Illinois, Inc., and owner/operator of Webley's Accounting Services in Evanston, Illinois since 1981. He is married and has five children. The threads of Webley's own life run through his well-written, emotional, intuitive and intelligent saga, "Surviving in America."
