Reception to follow
The ongoing series Voices of Lefferts: The Flatbush-PLG Community Writing Journal is one of Greenlight Bookstore’s bestselling titles; we’re thrilled to welcome the community back for Volume 2, 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 from the new issue in an evening celebrating the voices, lives, and stories of our neighborhood, with a wine reception to follow.
