September 20 at 7PM: Expressions of Youth (Young Writers Night)
Brooklyn Reading Works hosts Young Writers Night at the Old Stone House on Thursday, September 20 at 7PM. The two-hour program, a Brooklyn Book Festival Bookend event, will showcase up-and-coming teen authors from across five boroughs as they present everything from fiction to song.
And maybe the coolest part? The whole thing’s curated by Hannah Frishberg, herself a high school senior. This is an all-ages event.
The idea for this annual event started with novelist Jill Eisenstadt in 2009, who proposed it as a great way to celebrate young writers.
This year’s event is curated by Hannah Frishberg, a senior at Bard High School Early College and a poet herself. She asked a friend to design a poster and that’s what you see to the left. She’s also selected some wonderful writers and musicians, including two teenagers who are part of the NY Writers Coalition to be part of the evening.
Hope you’ll join us at this FREE event at the Old Stone House, 336 Third Street, between Fourth and Fifth Avenues in Park Slope, 718-768-3195 or 718-288-4290.
