The Mosaic Literary Conference is a grassroots event and a great opportunity for the Bronx and New York City communities of educators, 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 minds, strengthen literacy, and develop education strategies.
Mosaic Literary Conference 2018
November 17 at the Bronx Museum of the Arts
This year’s conference will explore the current wave of women’s empowerment and how it’s been historically reflected in artistic narrative -literature, media, visual art. We will specifically explore the #MeToo movement and how women such as bell hooks, Tarana Burke, and the founders of Black Lives Matter continue to hack at patriarchy.
