The Center for Fiction will open its doors in Downtown Brooklyn in the coming months, welcoming readers and writers of all ages and from all walks of life. Surrounded by BAM, the Mark Morris Dance Group and sixty other cultural destinations that draw over 4 million people to the neighborhood, The Center’s space designed by Julie Nelson at BKSK Architects, will place books and the celebration of story in all its forms at the very heart of this vibrant cultural area.
