Books, and the people who read them

  • Books, and the people who read them

More than 260 writer types participated in more than 100 panels at yesterday’s sixth annual Brooklyn Book Festival, held in and around Borough Hall in Downtown Brooklyn. I spent the whole day there and I only saw six panels! (I also bought a few books and ate lunch from a food truck.) If you’re wondering what the writers looked like, or what they said, there’s a slideshow after the jump! With quotes and colorful details!
