The Mosaic Literary Conference, now in its eighth year, is a great opportunity for teachers, students, program administrators, and parents to learn ways to blend books and reading into the lives of teenagers. MLC offers a mix of informative programs and creative workshops to engage young people, strengthen literacy, and develop education strategies.
This fall’s conference will focus on Piri Thomas’ 1967 classic “Down These Mean Streets.” The Nation says “Piri Thomas describes the passionate, painful search to validate his manhood…He has done it all in Harlem’s mean streets and gone on from machismo to manhood, acquiring during the journey an understanding of man.”
MLC2014 will include film screenings, panels, workshops, and reading. http://MosaicLitCon.com
