Write in Brooklyn Opens With Talk Featuring Isaac Fitzgerald and Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah

Write in Brooklyn, the annual literary discussion series hosted by the St. Francis College M.F.A. program in creative writing, opened on July 8 with a conversation between Isaac Fitzgerald and Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah that focused on “writing, breaking into writing and telling the stories you want to tell.”

Fitzgerald is the author of the bestselling children’s book How to Be a Pirate and co-author of Pen & Ink: Tattoos and the Stories Behind Them and Knives & Ink: Chefs and the Stories Behind Their Tattoos, winner of an International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) Award. His debut memoir, Dirtbag, Massachusetts, is forthcoming later this month.

Adjei-Brenyah is the author of Friday Black. His work has appeared or is forthcoming in numerous publications, including the New York Times Book Review, Esquire, The Paris Review and Guernica. He was selected by Colson Whitehead as one of the National Book Foundation’s “5 Under 35” honorees and is the winner of the PEN/Jean Stein Book Award as well as a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle’s John Leonard Award for Best First Book and the Aspen Words Literary Prize.
