Brooklyn Book Festival
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
This annual literary celebration brings together spectacular writers from across the globe for a full week of talks, shopping and even yoga to satisfy the borough’s brainiacs. Bookend events will be taking place all week, including an editors roundtable and a reading of Walt Whitman while traipsing around in the dark. The full schedule of these events can be found here. All those events lead up to the main draws: Saturday's Children's Day and Sunday's Festival day. This year boasts appearances by authors Jonathan Safran Foer, Ebony Flowers, Joyce Carol Oates, Tina Chang, Ilya Kaminsky, Nick Bruel and many more.
