On Sunday, September 23, from 10am to 6pm, upstreet will join more than 280 top national and international authors and participants at Brooklyn Borough Hall and Plaza (209 Joralemon Street) for the seventh annual Brooklyn Book Festival. All Festival events on Sunday, September 23, are free. The literary-themed “bookend” events will expand the Festival to a full week of more than 50 happenings at venues that include clubs, bookstores, theaters and libraries across the borough from September 17-23. Most bookend events are free; a few charge a modest admission.
This gathering attracts thousands of book lovers for the Festival’s lively literary marketplace, and presents a dazzling array of national and international literary stars, emerging authors and programming. Festival headliners will include Paul Auster, Carol Higgins Clark, Tony Danza, Edwidge Danticat, Pete Hamill, Joyce Carol Oates, Colson Whitehead, Dennis Lehane, Billy Collins, Judith Viorst, and many more.
