An evening of stories – in reading and conversation - of dysfunctional families, sibling rivalries, immigrant dreams, ambitious women and finding home in a program celebrating Elizabeth Nunez’s tenth novel and three-decade career of telling stories of the Caribbean beyond tales of sand, sea and sun.

With Dr. Juliet Emanuel (Associate Professor, BMCC and Board Member, Guyana Cultural Association), Naomi Jackson (Author, The Star Side of Bird Hill); Glynn Pogue (Writer/Photographer). Moderated by Maria McGarrity, Ph.D (Author, Washed by the Gulf Stream: The Historic and Geographic Relation of Irish and Caribbean Literature).

Presented in collaboration with Caribbean Cultural Theater and Akashic Books.


Illuminating the arts and life around us, BRIC’s Stoop Series explores music, theater, visual art, media, literature, comedy, and other creative fields, through performances, presentations, participatory activities and dynamic conversations. There’s something different every week!

This spring the Stoop Series includes a special mini-series of How To evenings speaking directly to BRIC’s artist community. These panel discussions bring artists and cultural workers together to share stories about exciting successes and instructive failures in the process of finding resources, collaborating and engaging community around their work.
