WORD + Latinx in Publishing at the Brooklyn Book Festival

    09/16/2018 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

    Defying Genre, Defying Otherness
    WORD and Latinx in Publishing present a panel featuring Women of Color exploring how their writing embraces alternative narrative structures and ignore the typical binds of genre. While traditional publishing is finally embracing diversity, authors have long pushed past the restrictive definitions and categories that attempt to structurally oppress expression. Featuring Zoraida Córdova of the Brooklyn Brujas chronicles, and Angela Maria Spring, spoken word poet and owner of Duende District bookstore, and Saraciea J Fennell, the founder of The Bronx Is Reading.  From a fantastical future to a hard look at the consequences of romance within the patriarchy, we’ll dive into how our experiences that defy our culturally inflicted limitations help to push our literature forward.
