"Homecoming Weekend" novel by Norfolk State graduate releases Sept. 4th
CURTIS BUNN, Norfolk State University graduate

As an Essence Magazine #1 bestselling author and national award-winning journalist, 1983 Norfolk State University graduate Curtis Bunn has effortlessly developed the ability to build genuine stories that expose real-life thinking and desires of men – as shown in his 2001 bestselling debut novel Baggage Check. Now, he’s back with a humorous and engrossing journey to a two-day university homecoming at a historically black college/university (HBCU) in HOMECOMING WEEKEND (Strebor/Simon & Schuster, September 4, 2012) where reminiscing partying, s*x, identity-seeking, romance, laughter, and even tears are about to ensue.

There is nothing quite like the fall tradition of the annual homecoming weekend on an HBCU campus. A massive family reunion of sorts, the annual experience is a universally sentimental event where alumni can come relive their glory days at games and step shows, check up on old crushes and friends, and check out everybody’s new looks and lists of accomplishments. In HOMECOMING WEEKEND, five friends return to Curtis Bunn’s real-life alma mater, Norfolk State University in Norfolk, VA with specific goals: reconnecting with old love interests, bragging about successes, making business contacts, and finding s*xual partners.

While these individuals arrive seeking satisfaction in certain ways, the private burdens they are struggling with will be revealed, intertwining their lives. Over a weekend of tailgating and partying, they will face realities that place them in ethical and moral dilemmas they will have to resolve, resulting in a more memorable Homecoming experience than any of them had imagined.

Curtis Bunn will make you wish you were right there, or at your very own HOMECOMING WEEKEND! And if you didn’t attend an HBCU, you will wish you had.

"My wish is that fellow HBCU graduates and supporters will support this book and make it a NY Times best-seller," Bunn said. "It would send a strong message to the masses of the power of HBCUs."
