Yesterday's Brooklyn Book Festival took place on what was arguably definitely the most beautiful day of the year; the bright blue sky and cool early autumn air surely contributed to the lively atmosphere that permeated downtown Brooklyn, as thousands of lit-lovers roamed the area around Borough Hall, buying books, attending readings and dropping into the many panel discussions on offer. And while this year's event was sadly Tony Danza-less (Danza was a real shining light last year), it was full of many other Brooklyn lit luminaries. In fact (and I'm sure this gets said every year) this might just have been the best Book Fest yet. With writers like Lois Lowry, Tom Wolfe, Jonathan Ames, Pete Hamill, Tao Lin, Dana Spiotta, Chang-Rae Lee, Teddy Wayne, Colum McCann, Adelle Waldman (and so many, many more) in attendance, there was really something for everyone. But, of course, not everyone could be there, so we've put together a little round-up on the things we saw at this year's Book Fest. Enjoy, and, you know, bask in the literary afterglow. Ew. I know. Gross.
