Event description

Description

We are excited to partner with Greenlight Bookstore and Akashic Books to present the 15th Annual Fort Greene Summer Literary Festival! This year, we unite in one of the neighborhood’s premier artistic spaces Roulette (509 Atlantic Avenue) to celebrate a summer of storytelling.

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. All in attendance will also be dazzled by a performance from the young dancers of Brooklyn Ballet. Last but not least, we welcome the young writers in our summer youth program (ages 6-18 years) who will also read for an inspiring afternoon of literature, good times, and support.

There will also be reception to follow at Greenlight Bookstore in Fort Greene. Please feel free to join us for drinks, cake, and conversation! We hope to see you there.
