Timeout New York Kids

Make the most of your city

Brooklyn Book Festival 2013 photos (slide show)

Families flocked to the Brooklyn Book Festival 2013 on Sunday, September 22, for author readings and signings, illustrator draw-offs, workshops and more.


When you have a borough as literature-loving as Brooklyn, it just makes sense that the city's best book fair is held there. Kids and their parents came out in droves to take in signings and readings by Time Out Kids fave authors like David Ezra Stein, Betsy Bird and Peter Brown; attend writing and comic-creating workshops with industry pros; meet Newbery Award winners Lois Lowry and Kathleen Applegate; and watch illustrators face off in a fun drawing competition. Click through our pics, below, to see what you may have missed—or had the chance to enjoy firsthand for yourselves.
