This Thursday at the Bronx Museum, join writers from across the world for a day of writing workshops and author discussions featuring authors such as Chantel Acevedo, Billy Kahora (pictured below), and Boubacar Boris Diop. And did I mention it’s free?
Read below for more information.
“The Bronx is an immigrant borough and deserves worldly literary programming,” says Bronx Writers Center Director Charlie Vázquez. “The Bronx Council on the Arts was extremely excited to participate on this project and we’ll continue this win/win/win partnership for the benefit of Bronxites borough-wide.” Info and RSVP: http://bronxarts.org
1. You love art.
The Bronx is filled with so many wonderful artists. This walk introduces you to what’s current in the borough and you’ll have a chance to speak with some of the artists themselves!
2. You love the Bronx.
The Bronx is awesome (obviously.) But maybe you want to get to know it a little more. This walk will make you fall in love with the Bronx all over again.
3. The only time you have ever been to the Bronx was to go to a Yankee game.
That’s quaint, but expand your horizons. There’s so much more to the Bronx than a baseball team!
4. You didn’t know the Bronx even had an art scene.
We do. And it’s amazing.
5. Your weekend plans involve spending a copious amount of time watching Netflix.
The weather’s going to be nice. Come outside and experience something new.
Bonus: After the walk, local restaurants Don Pancho’s Steakhouse and Mott Haven Bar will be offering specials to participants. And, though they weren’t able to be a part of the walk, Wall Works gallery’s having an open house on Saturday AND Ceetay will be celebrating 3 years in Mott Haven. It’s just going to be an overall awesome weekend to be in the Bronx.
