Voices of Lefferts: Issue 9
Featuring contributors Leslie Martinez, Michael Rance, Mia Gomez, Lamerol Gatewood, Maura Balaban, Isoke Senghor, and Travis Cameron
Hosted by project director Deborah Mutnick
Greenlight is delighted to once again welcome the local authors and contributors to Voices of Lefferts: The Flatbush-PLG Community Writing Journal into our Flatbush store for a celebratory evening. This latest issue is born of a liminal space, somewhere between life on hold during the pandemic and our emergence into a new reality. Essays include a paean to our very own Greenlight Bookstore, a walking history tour of the neighborhood conducted by a relative newcomer, a love song to trains, and several essays about real estate development and ever-changing local demographics. Editor and director Deborah Mutnick hosts a program of readings and discussion with neighborhood authors, in an evening celebrating the voices, lives, and stories of our neighborhood - we can't wait to see you there.
