New York City is preparing for the Brooklyn Book Festival this fall, September 11-17, after a successful 2016 festival which featured best selling authors such as Terry McMillan who has written Waiting to Exhale and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, which are both books turned film and prolific author Joyce Carol Oates of We Are The Mulvaneys which won for Oprah’s Book Club.
For this year’s 2017 line up of authors at the Brooklyn Book Festival there will be many national and international authors, and the list is still growing. This year, Joyce Carol Oates will return as a featured author and Pulitzer Prize winner Colson Whitehead for his book The Underground Railroad as well as Chris Hayes of MSNBC, author of A Colony in a Nation.
Over 150 publishers, authors and vendors are ready to meet and greet the public for free at this large event with Children’s Day being filled with pleasure and readings from best selling children’s book authors on that Saturday.
For a growing list of more authors and events to look forward to this fall, see the Brooklyn Book Festival’s website.
