The Mosaic Literary Conference, now in its eighth year, is a grassroots event and a great opportunity for teachers, students, program administrators, and parents to learn ways to integrate books and reading into the lives of teenagers. MLC offers a mix of informative programs and creative workshops to engage young people, strengthen literacy, and develop education strategies.
This fall’s conference will focus on Piri Thomas and his 1967 classic “Down These Mean Streets.” Participants include Eisa Nefertari Ulen, Anthony Morales, Peggy Robles-Alvarado, Rich Villar, Advocate Of Wordz, Christopher “Chilo” Cajigas, Willie Perdomo and others.
