Fun news! I was invited to read my essay “Brooklyn Kind of Love“ at a reading event on Sept. 15 at the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Branch.
Truth Be Told will feature six writers, including myself, who were finalists in the Brooklyn Film & Arts Festival’s Non-Fiction Prize contest. In 2013, I entered my piece in the contest and was able to read it at the finalist event that December. Although I did not win, it was amazing hearing the many stories of my beloved BK that evening.

“Brooklyn Kind of Love” is very personal to me. Brooklyn has been my home since birth and I’ve watched it go through many changes in the past 10 years. Some things are exciting while others are disturbing. I bring together my personal thoughts on coming of age in this borough and the changes I see happening around me in the essay.
