“The Brooklyn Book Festival is the largest free literary event in New York City presenting an array of literary stars and emerging authors who represent the exciting world of literature today. One of America’s premier book festivals, this hip, smart, diverse gathering attracts thousands of book lovers of all ages.”
This year there are going to be more that 220 authors at the festival! I was able to attend last year and picked up several new books. See their website here for more details on the events.
