Notes on the Brooklyn Book Festival 2012

Look at all these book-loving nerds! Just look at them!

  • Look at all these book-loving nerds! Just look at them!

The Brooklyn Book Festival celebrated its 7th year this past Sunday with a full slate of events for the lit-loving public. Tens of thousands of people descended on Downtown Brooklyn to check out some of Brooklyn’s best authors, publishing houses, and literary magazines. It was one of those beautiful September days that makes you happy to be outside, especially when being outside means getting to listen to noted Shakespeare aficionado Tony Danza (seriously, he was quoting Shakespeare while being interviewed by Marty Markowitz) talk about his new book.

We’ve put together a slideshow of some of the best things we saw on Sunday. And there were SO MANY things to choose from. So, we might have missed a few big events, but it was still a good day.
