Feature Friday: Take a Look at the Book Fest!

By Hannah Bennett

Last Sunday, the WNBA-NYC ran a booth at the Brooklyn Book Festival, and we couldn’t have asked for a more spectacular day.  The weather was perfect, the crowd was engaged and energized, and even the mischievous wind couldn’t put a damper on our spirits.  The highlight of the day was getting to meet and speak with so many visitors to the booth—spreading the word about the WNBA and learning more about the NYC book community.  In case you missed it, here’s a look at the day’s festivities!

Many of our new members volunteered to help out at the booth! Here, new member Olga Segura and I pose behind some of the National Reading Group Month Great Group Reads.


The festival had multiple venues, each with an impressive line-up of events. This panel at the Youth Stage was called “Young Adult Jeopardy,” and featured authors Zoraida Cordova, Natalie Standiford, Libba Bray, and Daniel Nayeri.
