The Brother's Network honors Larry Robin as Brother of the Year

"The voice of intelligence ... is drowned out by the roar of fear. It is ignored by 
the voice of desire. It is contradicted by the voice of shame. It is biased by hate 
and extinguished by anger. Most of all it is silenced by ignorance." -Dr. Karl A. Menninger

Larry Robin, 2015 Brother of the Year, founder of Moonstone Arts Center, 
Robin's Bookstore, and Moonstone Preschool. Mr. Robin's was the first and 
only bookstore in Philadelphia to sell books written by African Americans in 
Philadelphia. His legacy includes the opportunity for emerging and established 
authors and intellectuals to read chapbooks, poetry, novels and literature, from  
Nelson George to Sonia Sanchez. Nearly everyone who is a part of the black arts 
movement during the last forty years has presented their work in the Moonstone/
Robin's Bookstore space. 

Please join us in congratulating Larry Robin, our Brother of the Year, and we cordially 
invite you to attend these upcoming programs hosted by Larry Robin.
