CITY COLLEGE–The Bronx has recently become a cultural hub for literary activity, in part thanks to City College graduate, Saraciea J. Fennell. The Bronx Book Festival, an annual literary event that caters to residents of the Bronx, first took place in the summer of 2018. This year the festival will take place on Saturday, June 8 at Fordham Plaza and Fordham University. Erika Sanchez (I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter), Mark Oshiro (Anger is a Gift), and NoNieqa Ramos (The Disturbed Girl’s Dictionary), among several other authors, panelists, and vendors will be featured at the festival this year.
