The Literary Freedom Project is a Bronx-based nonprofit arts organization that seeks to restore the importance of reading books as an essential tool for developing intelligent, productive, and engaged minds.

LFP publishes Mosaic Literary Magazine; develops literature-based lesson plans; hosts the Bronx Book Fair and Mosaic Literary Conference, and presents community-based book clubs.

Bronx Book Fair (co-presenter)
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. BBF engages the community with a variety of programs that broaden access to Bronx literary artists, increase library usage, and encourage a love of books and reading. www.BronxBookFair.com

Lesson Plans for Teachers
Mosaic supplements its editorial content with lesson plans that are developed for secondary school educators. The lesson plans connect educators and students to literary ways to explore subjects such as social studies and history while serving to increase the importance of literature in the classroom.

Community-based Book Clubs
With professional instruction from a teaching-artist these book clubs engage in a literary “call and response” by reading and discussing books that reflect the demographics of the Bronx. Click here for additional information
