Really wish I was in New York this weekend. If you are, check out the Brooklyn Book Festival, taking place this Sunday, Sept. 12, from 10am-6pm.
There are tons of author readings–Salman Rushdie, Naomi Klein, Paul Auster, Venus Williams, Nelson George, Sarah Silverman, Gary Shteyngart, Mary Gaitskill, John Ashbery, Rosanne Cash, Paul Krugman, Colson Whitehead, Francine Prose, Dennis Lehane, Per Petterson, Esmeralda Santiago, Pete Hamill, Jennifer Egan, Russell Banks, Michael Connelly, John Hodgman, Kristen Schaal, Sam Lipsyte, Sloane Crosley, Maaza Mengiste, Paul Harding, Amy Goodman, Marlon James, Sarah MacLean, Jean Valentine, Elizabeth Nunez.
Plus, there is a marketplace in Borough Hall Plaza and Columbus Park with 170 vendors–including national and local booksellers, publishers, authors and presses galore. And remember those literary-inspired T-shirts I posted about a few months ago? They’ll be there too.
