DeVaughn plans to sponsor parties and events to promote teens children, and elders to see.
Lifelong Bronx resident Latanya DeVaughn announced at a Sunday event in Bronx Music Heritage Center, that she is going to soon be bringing a mobile book, Bronx Bound Books, into the borough.
Only a couple of weeks ago, the Bronx’s much-anticipated general-interest bookstore, the Lit. Tavern opened after a successful crowdfunding effort. Now, as Welcome2theBronx initially reported, the borough will be getting another peddler of all tomes.

She will be launching a crowdfunding campaign in the next two to three weeks, aiming to increase between $80,000 and $65,000 to commence the project.

DeVaughn, who works at a nonprofit, used to conduct an open mic at Books from the Hood, an independent bookstore that closed down from the borough at 2011. “I have a huge passion for the Bronx and writing and reading,” she told Curbed. “A bookstore has ever been a part of my life plan and with all the rents being the way they’re in the Bronx, I understood the dream was likely to be further off.”

However, she realized there was another option. “On a vehicle, I could be with the community, know who they are, without relying upon them to come to me personally,” DeVaughn explained.
