Abington Native Publishes Two-Volume Fictional Tale About Black Greek Life


Abington native Al B. “Kapone” Quarles II has shared his passion for Greek life with a two-volume fictional tale about Black Greek life called “Burning Sands.”

Al B. “Kapone” Quarles II, a lover of Black Greek life from Abington, has decided to share his passion in a two-volume fictional tale “Burning Sands,” writes Bobbi Booker for The Philadelphia Tribune.

Quarles pledged Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity in 1988 while he was studying at Millersville University, and stayed an active member while earning his master’s degree in educational psychology from Temple University.

Today, Quarles works as an administrator for the School District of Philadelphia, but as an author, he shares tales of Black Greek life with his readers.

His debut book series, “Burning Sands,” is an offbeat adventure that combines elements of a thriller and a comedy.

“It is a story about two young friends who grow up in the Greater Philadelphia area in the ‘80s with hip-hop music,” said Quarles. They get enthralled in this whole concept of Greeks, from the Greek Picnic and Penn Relays to the people they know.”

The first volume is called “My Brother’s Keeper,” and the second installation is titled “Hell 2 Pay.” Both are available on Amazon.
