No city in America boasts more character—or characters—than Brooklyn! Brooklyn and its people have been inspiring writers from Walt Whitman to Colson Whitehead and from Marianne Moore to Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Jhumpa Lahiri.

The Brooklyn Book Festival, held on September 16, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., will celebrate Brooklyn’s thriving and diverse literary community and its rich history as a home and inspiration for authors. From Williamsburg to Bedford-Stuyvesant, Park Slope and Brighton Beach, Brooklyn is home to authors, literary magazines and publishers.

The festival, to be held in historic Brooklyn Borough Hall and outdoors on its beautiful plaza, will showcase retailers, publishers, authors and literary organizations. Multiple stages and indoor venues will feature adult and children’s programming, spirited panel discussions and spoken word performances. The festival will attract a broad and diverse audience from Brooklyn and the metropolitan region.

The Brooklyn Book 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.

Please join BookCourt at the festival! We hope to see you there!
