Mosaic Literary Conference 2012

Join Mosaic Literary Magazine at Hostos Community College November 9-10 for the Mosaic Literary Conference, an opportunity for teachers, administrators, and parents to learn more about the role of books and reading in the lives of teenagers.

Now in its seventh year, MLC is a mix of informative public programs and creative workshops that celebrate books, culture, and education while providing the tools to engage young people, strengthen literacy, and develop educational strategies.

One event to put on your radar: A book discussion of Zora Neale Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God, presented by WNYC and hosted by award-winning writer, performer, and recording artist Carl Hancock Rux. All in celebration of the novel’s 75th anniversary and happening on November 9 at 7:00 p.m.

The rest of the schedule promises a day of literary workshops presented by instructors from the Black Girl Project, the Community Word Project, National Book Foundation, and many others. Click here for the full line-up.
