Nine terrific writers, all women, from various countries and walks of life will be delivering their best five minutes each in memoir, poetry, and fiction on “How I Found My Worth.” Live music to start. There will be a powerful closing statement by the Reverend Nettie Paisley, followed by a Meet and Greet with the readers. Light refreshments provided by Fabiane’s Catering and Pastry of Williamsburg.
Admission: Free. However, we will be passing the basket for optional (but much appreciated!) donations for Brooklyn’s Center for Anti-Violence Education (CAE).
