Hosted by editor Deborah Mutnick
Voices of Lefferts: The Flatbush-PLG Community Writing Journal, Volume 1, No. 1 has become one of Greenlight Bookstore’s bestselling titles; we’re thrilled to welcome the community back for Volume 1, No. 2! Voices of Lefferts is a community writing journal and documentary project that celebrates, engages, and preserves the historic Brooklyn neighborhood of Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Combining writing, photography and art, Voices of Lefferts documents the working-class, multiracial, predominantly immigrant West Indian community in a time of rapid change, development and displacement, and ultimately aims to contribute to political and cultural discussion and debate in PLG-Flatbush. 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.
