Books Beneath the Bridge

A perfect summer night’s story starts with Books Beneath the Bridge. This 2020, Books Beneath the Bridge goes Virtual. Join Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy on Monday nights for book readings by featured authors, representing six of Brooklyn’s best independent bookstores. Each evening will include readings, discussion, and more, as inspired by each author and our program partners. In this moment where social justice is at the fore of our collective consciousness, it is vital more than ever to listen and learn from one another. This year’s Books Beneath the Bridge series will feature presenters reflecting on current events and centering marginalized voices, through the lens of their lived experience as well as their... more communities'. We will feature a range of perspectives and navigate themes of protest poetry, migrant voices, gender-queer perspectives, the richness and resilience of black girl culture, modern-day parenting, and more.
