Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival

2009-fgp-lit-fest-poster-mediumOn Saturday, August 22 at 3 PM, come to the monument in Fort Greene Park (Brooklyn, NY) for the (FREE) fifth annual Summer Literary Festival; the event is presented by the New York Writers Coalition (NYWC), Akashic Books, GTHQ, the Fort Greene Park Conservancy, and the Walt Whitman Project. Brooklyn-based authors Colson Whitehead, Toure, and Stacey Ann Chin will share the reading podium with young writers (ages 7-17) from the NYWC’s free creative writing workshops in the park. Visit the NYWC’s website for more details. Sadly I just moved away from Fort Greene, but I highly recommend a visit to the park; since the lit festival is on Saturday, you can combine it with a trip to the neighborhood’s weekly Greenmarket (along Washington Park, starting at Dekalb Ave.) from 8 AM-5 PM.
