The Literary Freedom Project is committed to creating spaces that help leverage the power of books and reading. Our programs value the variety of cultures found in the Bronx and give people places to come together, build community, and explore histories. LFP believes that by providing spaces to discuss the variety of cultures found in literature, we're rebuilding communities of book lovers.
LFP presents One Book One Bronx, develops literature-based lesson plans & workshops, publishes Mosaic, and hosts the Mosaic Literary Conference.
One Book One Bronx
One Book One Bronx is a new style book club that brings neighbors and family together to read and discuss one book that reflects that community. Books are selected that inspire, encourage, and delight readers. www.OneBookOneBronx.com
