Link of the Week | Brooklyn Book Festival

 

The Brooklyn Book Festival (BKBF) is one of the biggest festivals in New York City and this year it is featuring over 300 authors. Originally meant to showcase the unique “voice” of Brooklyn, because of the variety of authors that resided there, the event has taken off allowing other authors outside of Brooklyn to be celebrated as well.

The Festival starts on Monday, September 10 and will primarily be in downtown Brooklyn. There will be different panels, themed readings, author signings, and vendors that will be present. More recently, the festival has gown to include two special days during the festival: Children’s Day (Saturday, September 15) and Festival Day (Sunday, September 16th).

They are also presenting the Bobi Award, which is the Best of Brooklyn award for the author “whose work best exemplifies or speaks to the spirit of Brooklyn”. This year, the winner is N.K Jemisin who is the first author to win with speculative fiction.

The full schedule for the Brooklyn Book Festival can be found here.

Quote of the Week | Roald Dahl

This week, we’re celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday (September 13th, 1916). Dahl was the author of many well-known children’s books including, James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Matilda which became a Broadway play in 2013. While many know him for his children’s stories, he also wrote screenplays (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) and was an avid writer of adult fiction as well. Dahl was known for his darkly comic and unsentimental tales for children and adults.

“So, please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookcase on the wall.”
