Saturday, August 30 – Mark Naison PhD and Melissa Castillo-Garsow book presentation for Pure Bronx, A Novel

2700 E Tremont Avenue – 4 – 6pm – Free (#6 train to Westchester Square)

Authors Mark Naison PhD and Melissa Castillo-Garsow will join the Bronx Writers Center for a special presentation for Pure Bronx, a novel that follows the journey of a young South Bronx couple, Khalil and Rasheeda, who struggle to make it out of the ghetto. Filled with a realistic cast of characters from hustlers to wealthy Wall Street moguls, Pure Bronx is an action-packed drama that moves with the speed of a rush hour express train. We will close this presentation with a Q&A where participants can ask the authors questions about writing and the publishing process.

Books will be available for purchase/signing by the authors…
