10th Anniversary Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 23-08-2014 23-08-2014 15 10th Anniversary Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival Killer stoop sales, the Brooklyn Flea, and the saucy return of Habana Outpost are just a few Fort Greene staples in summertime. But when it comes to a community tradition in this ever-changing neighborhood that readers and writers from all generations flock to, there’s very little that matches the power of NY Writers Coalition's Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival — and this year we’re celebrating our 10th anniversary! Young writers from the NYWC summer youth workshops in Fort Greene Park will share some powerful poetry and prose alongside some of the city’s most beloved writers: Five Quarterly co-founder Vanessa Gabb; Lit Fest vets Danny Simmons, Jr. and Sapphire; BlackGirl Mansion author Angel Nafis; and prize-winning poet and children’s author Willie Perdomo. Our Master of Ceremonies is music journalist and WFMU deejay Gaylord Fields. An after-party will follow at 4:30 p.m. at the Greenlight Bookstore (686 Fulton Street). Come meet the writers – plus, invite your friends here! This event is free and open to the public and takes place at Fort Greene Park's Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument. (Rain location: BRIC Media House at 647 Fulton Street). http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=169583 Fort Greene Park true DD/MM/YYYY
