Brooklyn Book Festival

If there ever was an opportunity to use the word cornucopia, the Brooklyn Book Festival is it! The Brooklyn Book Festival, celebrating its 9th year, is the largest free literary event in New York City, with a little bit of everything for everyone, including indie booksellers and imprints, writing groups, workshops, poets galore, and lots of opportunities to find just the right book for you.

    • Rosanne, It was a terrific weekend of celebrating books, and catching up with some of my favorite authors and illustrators. Sorry you couldn’t make it to Princeton. Hope you can make the craft weekend. 🙂

  1. Robin, you must be exhausted, but in a good way! Just a couple of questions: Did you spend your entire pay check between the two festivals, and did you get anything for “finding Waldo”? 🙂 Thanks for posting!

  2. Oh, wow, Robin! This looks AMAZING! I forgot you mentioned you were going to this. No wonder you’re finally putting your feet up. They must be killing you! lol Are these festivals always on the same weekend? And I recognized Richard Morris ’cause I got to meet him last week (briefly) in Maplewood. Lovin’ all this kidlit/book stuff lately!!! 😀 Thanks for sharing!

  3. You were so lucky to be able to attend the book fairs. Your pictures tell a story. It was nice to see a photo of Christiane Krömer, who illustrated one of my favorite books this year “King for a Day.”
