Alan Braverman is a Brooklyn poet, artist, and, a retired teacher. Nine years ago at Ken Siegelman’s Poetry Outreach, Ken inspired Alan to write again. Sadly, Ken Siegelman passed away in 2009. Subsequently, Alan was featured at the BookMark Bard, Barnes and Noble, and the Park Slope Library with Anthony Vigorito, the MC; and Evie Ivy’s Open Mic, at the Green Pavilion. Evie Ivy published two of his poems, in The Venetian Hour, Dinner With the Muse, Volume II, and one poem in Patricia Carragon’s Brownstone Poets Anthology. Alan has illustrated a book of poems by Anthony Vigorito, the author of several books of poetry.

Catherine Gigante-Brown’s works of fiction, nonfiction and poetry have appeared in publications as diverse as Ravishly, Essence, American Gardener, Huffington Post Woman and Dakota Outdoors. She co-authored two biographies for Prometheus Books. Her short stories appear in women’s fiction anthologies. Several of her screenplays have been produced by independent film companies. Her novels The El, Different Drummer and The Bells of Brooklyn are published by Volossal, and she is currently working on a musical version of Different Drummer with a director and composer. Brown was born and bred in Brooklyn, where she still lives with her husband
