So you’re all going to the Brooklyn Book Festival this Sunday, right? Right! But so, have you seen the line-up of events? It’s overwhelming. It’s overwhelming in the best possible way, but still. There’s a lot to choose from. And so we thought we’d help you by highlighting what we think are the must-see events at this year’s Book Fest. Beyond our recommended panels and readings, don’t forget to spend ample time wandering around, checking out all the booths where some of our favorite small publishers and lit magazines are set up. Last year, the good people from Electric Literature were giving away temporary tattoos that looked like psychedelic electrical outlets. It was pretty cool. We hope they do that again.
