Join Word Up for a screening of Gregory Hernandez‘s film 1.5 Million about the literacy crisis in the Bronx, the home where he was born and raised.

At the end of the screening, Brandon Montes, founder of the Norwood Community Library, Linda Aldebot, Assistant Principal (Bronx Studio School For Writers & Artists), and Veronica Santiago Liu, founder of Word Up, will join the director for a discussion about literacy in the neighborhood.
