Around Town: The Brooklyn Book Festival 2015

This Sunday, the Brooklyn Book Festival marks its 10th anniversary as one of New York’s premiere gatherings for book writers, publishers, and readers.

According to its site, the festival is the “largest free literary event in New York City,” and we can see why! Packed with events like The Long Roots of Social Change, The Writer’s Life, and How to Help Readers Discover Your Book Today, the festival runs all day with events going from 10am to 6pm.

Hundreds of writers, critics, and professionals (sometimes all three at once) will be in attendance and acting as event speakers or moderators, including Margo Jefferson, Maaza Mengiste, Salman Rushdie, David Levithan, Anne Washburn, Alejandro Zambra, Joyce Carol Oates… the list goes on!

So if you’re in the mood for being enlightened and learning just a little bit more about book structure, character development, social issues, and human empathy, stop on by for this truly incredible experience.
