Brooklyn Book Festival

Sat 15 Sep 2007 - Filed under: Not a Journal., | 5 Comments | Posted by: Gavin

Today, Sunday, Sept. 16,  from 10 AM until 6 PM (plus or minus a few minutes, come on, this is us , after all) we will be joining the hordes at the Brooklyn Book Festival in Brooklyn, NY.

We should be at Table 27, easily distinguished by it’s whiff of late summer lavender and dancing goat display. Also, it is between tables 26 (Housing Works Bookstore Café) and 28 (BOMB Magazine). And near Drawn & Quarterly (32). And some 90+ others. Many of whom will have fascinating texts that might interest You, Dear Reader.

So take the train down (2, 3, 4, 5 to Borough Hall; R to Court Street; A, C, F to Jay Street/Borough Hall) or perhaps it will be lovely and you will want bike instead (aren’t cars banned from NYC by now?) and do drop by to say hello.

    so bummed I’m no longer in nyc! Did you guys see the One Story table? Did the end up wearing pith helmets?d

    I definitely spotted One Story, but no pith helmets. Surely I’d remember seeing even a single pith helmet . . . ?

    Nice seeing youse, Gavin and Jed! Sorry I had to run off to my table.

    It was a great fair, weather: great; people: great; wandering bookbuyers with wheeled bookbuying appurtenances: great.

    Only thing missing was pith helmets. That and more street food. Next year!
