I am pleased to announce my new position as the new Executive Director of
the Bronx Book Fair. I am both humbled and honored. I look forward to working in this new and exciting role. I am delighted to be working with a committee of talented and accomplished leaders in their own right. It is indeed an honor to be recognized for my work and commitment to the performing and fine arts and literary communities. I am moved by the committee’s support and confidence as we move forward, to bring another year of the best in literary programming to the Bronx and greater New York City and surrounding area communities.
My platform is literacy, and working to create innovative programming and to enhance the artistic experience for artists and community residents. In addition, to work to provide opportunity for our Bronx literary community of poets and writers.
We are now approaching our sixth year. Launched in 2013, the Bronx Book Fair is dedicated to engaging and growing the community of poets and writers in the Bronx and to connecting those literary artists to readers and book lovers of all ages. Through readings, workshops, and presentations. Our goal is to engage the community with a variety of literature and programs that will broaden access to Bronx literary artists, increase library usage, and encourage a love of books and reading. The Bronx Book Fair has a vision for mobilizing the trusted, neutral, information-rich public space of the library to deliver literary and literacy programming. A vision that includes building effective collaborations. A vision that fosters mastery and promotes meaningful social engagement. Our work to date affirms this vision. Thanks, to the Bronx Library Center, Michael Alvarez, Associate Director and Jean Harripersaud, Adult Librarian for your commitment, work and for providing such a wonderful home for the Bronx Book Fair.
We have exciting programming planned for Bronx Book Fair 2018. We will be posting events leading up to the Bronx Book Fair. Visit our website for updates at
