UPCOMING Brooklyn Book Festival EVENTS @ Weeksville
Join the National Book Foundation, Cave Canem, and Weeksville Heritage Center as we celebrate 20 years of Cave Canem poets at the National Book Awards. Cave Canem’s influence on American poetry has profoundly expanded the canon, bringing fresh diction, form, and imagery to our poetics. Year after year, Cave Canem poets have been winners and finalists for the National Book Awards. NBA winners & finalists Terrance Hayes, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Marilyn Nelson read and discuss their work.
Join Kimbilio Fiction and Weeksville Heritage Society for a compelling conversation between The New Yorker's Vinson Cunningham and novelist-critic Darryl Pinckney of The New York Review of Books on lost black literary legacies, Baldwin’s enduring vision and the work ahead for cultural producers.
