The elusive auteur of black professional noir and erotica decides to pay Charlotte an early visit. Despite the fact that she's participating in this year's Charlotte Literary Festival, Zane has decided to pop in for a little update and sign copies of her newest. Dear G Spot: Straight Talk About Sex & Love is full of letters from men and women seeking the celebrated author's advice on everything from virginity, homosexuality, low self-esteem and a low sex drive. In anticipation of her newest release, Zane drops in for a pre-CLF book signing party. Be the first in line to ask Black America's "Dr. Ruth" your question. 6 p.m. RealEyes Bookstore, 3306-A N.
