This riveting first-of-its-kind collection of personal memoir includes stories written by dozens of native Bronxites, as well as by those who’ve arrived from the Dominican Republic, Maryland, USA, and Italy. This is the first title to be released by the Bronx Council on the Arts’ BCA Media publishing platform. The culmination of over fifty stories and artworks produced at twenty-five free memoir-writing workshops created by BCA in spring of 2014, these testimonies were inspired by the facilitation of professional writers of various disciplines, generating over fifty submissions of memoir penned by mostly unpublished writers.
