Event description

Description

One Book One Bronx is a new style reading group that inspires, encourages, and delights readers. Every week, we meet to discuss one book that reflects the people of the Bronx. Sessions are free to join. The first 25 attendees receive a free copy of the book. Participants are encouraged to attend all five sessions: Tuesdays, 6:30pm to 8:00pm, May 28, June 4, 11, 18, 25, 2019

In his fourth collection, The Crazy Bunch, Willie Perdomo returns to his beloved neighborhood to create a vivid, kaleidoscopic portrait of a “crew” coming of age in East Harlem at the beginning of the 1990s. In poems written in couplets, vignettes, sketches, riffs, and dialogue, Perdomo recreates a weekend where surviving members of the crew recall a series of tragic events: “That was the summer we all tried to fly. All but one of us succeeded.” 128 pages

>> Saturday, June 22, 6pm. Join One Book One Bronx and BX Writers for the launch of Willie Perdomo’s new book, The Crazy Bunch at The Lit.Bar, 131 Alexander Ave, Bronx

One Book One Bronx is presented by the Literary Freedom Project. LFP believes that cultural identity is a fundamental cornerstone in the development of smart, creative, and engaged communities. These qualities, on which cultures are sustained and strengthened, are honed, in part, through a mix immersive reading –academic, vocational, and pleasure.
