The Seventh Annual Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival: Brooklyn All-Stars shine under a bright sun

It has become a literary tradition in a neighborhood with an abundance of literary tradition.

A crowd of over 200 gathered at the foot of the Prison Martyr’s monument in beautiful Fort Greene Park for the seventh annual Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival on Saturday, August 20, 2011.  This year’s event featured the young writers from NY Writer’s Coalition summer creative writing workshops for youth, ages 6-17, along with some of Brooklyn’s most celebrated authors – our Brooklyn All-Stars!  Bryonn Bain, R. Erica Doyle, Bernice McFadden, Rick Moody and Jon Sands headlined this extraordinary reading/celebration. You can read more about this year’s  festival in this great post by the NY Times Fort Greene-Clinton Hill Local blog.
