The brilliant Tanwi Nandini Islam kicks off our 2016 CHAPTERS Reading Series at the General Society Library! Join us as our teen girls perform mesmerizing, powerful performances. The event is open to the public (and free for teens!).

Tanwi Nandini Islam, author of Bright Lines (Penguin Books, August 2015), is a writer, multimedia artist, and founder of Hi Wildflower Botanica, a handcrafted natural perfume and skincare line. A graduate of Vassar College and Brooklyn College’s MFA program, she lives in Brooklyn.

“The spirit and verve of (R)evolution echoes the power of young women to reimagine our world with their words. Each and every story in these pages is a testament to the necessity of literary learning spaces like Girls Write Now. Their creative fire will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading this important, beautiful collection.” – Tanwi Nandini Islam on the 2016 Girls Write Now Anthology


Grab tickets for the rest of the series! Our mentees will be joined by Mia Alvar on April 15, Angela Flournoy on May 20, and Naomi Jackson on June 17.
