NY Writers Coalition (NYWC), Greenlight Bookstore & Akashic Books present the 15th Annual Fort Greene Summer Literary Festival. This year we'll gather at Roulette (509 Atlantic Ave) to celebrate a summer of storytelling. We're thrilled to present our featured readers, Tina Chang, Shira Erlichman, Ladan Osman, & Nicole Sealey. All in attendance will be dazzled by a performance from the young dancers of Brooklyn Ballet. Plus, we welcome the young writers in NYWC's summer youth program (ages 6-18) who will also read for an inspiring afternoon of literature, good times, & support.
This year's lineup features three highly acclaimed poets & novelists: Tina Chang, author of Hybrida: Poems, Shira Erlichman, author of Be/Hold: A Friendship Book, Ladan Osman, author of Exiles of Eden, and Nicole Sealey, author of Ordinary Beast: Poems. Writer & Poet Angel Nafis, author of BlackGirl Mansion, joins us as the Master of Ceremonies for this exciting event, bringing generations of writers together to build on the rich literary traditions of Fort Greene.
