Brooklyn Borough Hall plays host to the first annual Brooklyn Book Festival this Saturday (9/16). Brooklyn Beep Marty Markowitz says the festival "will celebrate Brooklyn’s international reputation as an enclave of hip, multi-ethnic writers who represent some of the greatest names in literature today."
Brooklyn authors attending include music writer Nelson George (Hip Hop America), Steve Hindy (Beer School: Bottling Success of the Brooklyn Brewery), Jennifer Weiss (Brooklyn by Name) and our favorite comic book loving theologian, Rabbi Simcha Weinstein (Up, Up and Oy Vey).
