Fort Greene has long been one of the most beautiful and eccentric neighborhoods in all of Brooklyn. The Fort Greene Park Summer Literary Festival perfectly highlights the area's diversity, with readings by young writers (seven to eighteen) alongside a group of critically acclaimed authors from various cultural backgrounds including Jackson Taylor, Justin Torres and Ayana Mathis. And whether you listen in on the afternoon readings or not, everyone is invited to Greenlight Books afterwards for mixing and mingling.
