Franklin Park and the Brooklyn Public Library are featuring the finalists for BPL’s Brooklyn Eagles Literary Prize, recognizing the fiction and nonfiction books of the past year that best embody the Brooklyn spirit. The prize is awarded by the Brooklyn Eagles, BPL’s fun group of engaged young supporters, and the winners will be announced at the Brooklyn Classic Fall Benefit on October 21.

The series has been recommended and covered by numerous publications, including The New York Times, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, the NY Daily News, BOMB, The Rumpus, the Paris Review, Tin House, Flavorpill, Electric Literature, and the Brooklyn Paper. Time Out New York named FP NYC’s Best Literary Series, and the Village Voice gave us a Best of NYC award for Best Reading Series.
