On Sept. 28, The Center for Black Literature, in collaboration with The Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA), will be hosting its Literary Salon event in Brooklyn.
The event, which is scheduled to take place at MoCADA Gallery (located at 80 Hanson Place), will serve as a bookend to this year’s Brooklyn Book Festival.
Literary Salon is an interactive gathering of poets and writers, where attendees can listen in on engaging conversations with renowned storytellers such as Keisha-Gaye Anderson (poet, visual artist), James E. Cherry (author), Judy Juanita (award-winning poet and short story writer), and Quincy Troupe (author).
Some of the writers that are slated to be in-attendance at the event were featured in the new anthology book, Black Fire This Time.
Black Fire This Time is an exploration of the Black Arts Movement from the perspective of over 100 talented writers.
Copies of the anthology will be on sale during the event, with book signings available after the evening’s conversations have concluded.
The event is free to attend, although registration is required. Residents can register online via the Brooklyn Literary Salon Eventbrite page.
