Performance poet, author, and activist Mahogany Browne, the Poetry Coordinator of St. Francis College MFA Program, will moderate a live discussion with best-selling young adult novelist Jason Reynolds and actor and writer Amber Tamblyn about the necessity of creating beyond genres and writing fearlessly.
Taking place on April 11th, the conversation is the second event in Write in Brooklyn, a new St. Francis College MFA discussion series with prominent writers from a range of genres.
Reynolds is a poet and author of the popular Track young-adult novel series (Ghost, Patina, Sunny and Lu), When I Was The Greatest and Long Way Down. His work has earned an array of awards, including multiple Coretta Scott King Book Award honors and an NAACP Image Award. Ghost was a National Book Award finalist.
Known globally for her star turns in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films, Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Tamblyn is also an acclaimed poet and novelist. Her works include the novels Any Man and Era of Ignition, and poetry collections Free Stallion and Bang Ditto.
Browne, a Cave Canem fellow and Agnes Gund Fund Recipient, has published multiple poetry collections and books, including Woke Baby, Kissing Caskets, Redbone, and Dear Twitter: Love Letters Hashed Out Online. PBS NewsHour featured Browne reading her poem "Black Girl Magic" in its Brief But Spectacular segment.
"For many artists, the lines between writing poetry and novels are porous," said Browne. "This conversation is sure to shed light on the ways in which writers move seamlessly between genres and how poetry informs other kinds of storytelling. I'm thrilled to discuss these issues with two of the most talented writers I know."
Write in Brooklyn Presents: An Evening with Mahogany L. Browne, Jason Reynolds and Amber Tamblyn is free and open to the public.
