Tomorrow at high noon tres cool award winning artist, Common is going to be at Macy’s on State launching his new book, One Day It’ll All Make Sense. Common's diverse repertoire has spanned from acting in film, modeling preforming at The White House to now, writing his first book. Compiled with open letters to loved ones, both living and those who’ve passed on, peppered with lyrics from some of Common’s songs throughout his career and his mother’s unflinching insight, One Day It’ll All Make Sense challenges the reader to look beyond the celebrity and understand fully the man behind the spotlight. Common will be signing copies of the new book for customers who have purchased it at the Macy’s on State Street location of Barbara’s Bookstore on the day of the event. But hurry - this event is limited to the first 300 copies of the book. [Racked Inbox]
