THE EVENT: Local pals feted CSI:NY star Hill Harper at a party honoring his new book, Letters to a Young Sister, which shares the same message of empowerment and respect as his previous best-seller focusing on young black men, Letters to a Young Brother. THE SCENE: Guests mingled in Julian Epstein’s sleek multi-leveled Adams-Morgan loft, admiring the art and outdoor views as the author signed books and spoke of his support of Harvard Law School classmate Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential bid. THE GUESTS: Among those spotted in what was described as a “charged atmosphere” of actors, models, politicos and media types were BET’s LaToya Foster and Andre Showell, D.C. Councilwoman Yvette Alexander, Juleanna Glover and co-hosts Paul Wharton, Michael Hines, Kevin Parker and Jarvis Stewart.
