Literary Freedom Project Year-end Appeal


Thanks to your support Mosaic has completed another successful year of presenting talented writers and literary programs. We are proud of our ten years of featuring writers of African descent and, with your help, will continue that dedication to literature and reading.
Here are a few highlights from 2008.
•    Mosaic continued to grow in reach and popularity. We published interviews with Frank X. Walker, A 2005 recipient of the Lannan Literary Fellowship in Poetry; Tina McElroy Ansa, a past recipient of the Stanley W. Lindberg Award; Walter Dean Myers, five-time recipient of the Coretta Scott King Award; as well as Nikki Giovanni, Kalisha Buckhanon, Kwame Dawes, and Opal Palmer Adisa.
•    In the fall of 2008, we celebrated our 10th anniversary with a series of readings throughout New York City. Participating literary artists included Tayari Jones, Leaving Atlanta and The Untelling; Thomas Glave, editor of Our Caribbean: A Gathering of Lesbian and Gay Writing from the Antilles; as well as Rosamond King, R. Erica Doyle, Patrick Rosal, Americo Casiano, and Louis Reyes Rivera.
•    In October, secondary-school educators from across New York City tri-state area attended our fourth Re:Verse Literary Conference. Re:Verse is a day of professional-development literature workshops focused on ways educators can incorporate literature and reading into existing course work, including history and social studies.
Your continued support is crucial. It will allow us to broaden our coverage of Black writers outside of the U.S., increase our ability to present original content on our website, and expand the scope of our professional-development programs.
