If you’re a big fan of the William’s sisters or love tennis in general, Harlemites will soon have an opportunity to meet one of the best women’s tennis players in the U.S. and possibly the winner of this year’s U.S. Open right here in Harlem. Venus Williams will be visiting Harlem at Hue-Man Bookstore, located at 2319 Frederick Douglass Blvd., on September 13 to talk about her book Come to Win, a motivational book for the court of life. Williams will be at Hue-Man from 6-8 p.m. on September 13. Click here for additional details.
