Corónate at Queens Musuem

invites you to a memoir writing workshop for the Latinx community, organized by Herstory Writers Workshop and Corona live. Facilitated by Natalia Chamorro, a writer and academic based in New York, in these writing sessions you will find your creative voice while shaping your story in a powerful narrative structure, powerful enough to startle a “Stranger/Reader”* into caring. You are invited to share your story, or part of it, with the community. Find your creative voice. Share your story. Change the world. This workshop is in Spanish and free.

DATES: July 11th, 18th

TIME: 11:30am-1:30pm

Brave Journeys: A Reading and Discussion

Canio's Bookstore is pleased to present a reading and discussion of Brave Journeys to take place at the bookshop. Inspired by the recent Freedom Forum event at Stony Brook, co-owners Maryann and Kathryn agreed that featuring Brave Journeys, a moving and important work, would be the best way to begin discussion and promote action in support of our immigrant neighbors.


DATE: Sunday, November 25th 

TIME: 3:00 P.M.

LOCATION: 290 Main Street, Sag Harbor, NY 11963

A member of Racial Justice East End, Canio's Books has long been supportive of community concerns. RJEE's recent book discussions have included Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy, Susan Burton's Becoming Ms. Burton, and Michelle Alexander's The New Jim Crow, among other titles. These works have raised awareness, informed and inspired readers to do more for racial justice in the local community. Together with RJEE clergy and activists, we expect Brave Journeys will be a springboard for activism in support of East End immigrants.


Representatives from OLA, and PEER (Progressive East End Reformers) will be present to share in the readings and discussion. We'll present several ways audience members can advocate for basic rights and protections for our immigrant neighbors.
