Atlantic Antic and Brooklyn Book Festival Sunday

This year’s Atlantic Antic will take place on Atlantic Avenue between Hicks Street and Fourth Avenue this coming Sunday, October 1, from noon until 6:00 p.m., rain or shine. Local merchants will be represented, with special deals for the occasion, along with food, music, dancers, visual artists, clothing vendors, and fun sites for kids. There’s a festival map here. It’s sponsored by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation.

Also on Sunday the Brooklyn Book Festival, “the city’s largest free, literary festival,” will have its Festival Day and Literary Marketplace from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. on “Borough Hall Plaza, Columbus Park and other nearby locations.” There’s more information through links on the website linked above.

As of now, the weather forecast for Sunday is encouraging: sunny, with a high of 77.

    As an increasingly ancient former denizen of the publishing industry, I plan to go to the Book Fair and enjoy intellectual, rather than foodie, stimulation. Besides, it’s a lot less walking.

    Here’s one of my photos from the 2019 Festival. You can see a sit-down audience for one of the program items in the rear of the photo:

    Walked down Atlantic this morning and picked up some treats at Damascus bakery. They put out a nice spread and are welcoming as always. Kind of disappointed with the rest of what I saw. The local restaurants and food shops didn’t have much out, even Sahadis. Nothing from Swallow Cafe, Luzzo’s, the Middle Eastern places on the south side of the avenue…Seems like a missed opportunity.
