Brooklyn Book Festival Recap

A few weeks ago, David R. Godine, Publisher, attended the Brooklyn Book Festival and had a great time. We arrived early with a car full of books, posters, tablecloths, and a few boxes of raisins for David. It was cold and blustery as we hunted for our booth, which we eventually found tucked behind the Festival stage. After unpacking and stacking piles of irresistible Godine books, we took the chance to explore the festival grounds before the festival started. Everyone was scrambling to finish setting up as the booths came to life with books of all shapes, sizes, and genres.

Brooklyn Book Festival is the largest free literary event in New York City and throughout the day thousands of book lovers flocked to the festival to mingle with publishers and authors and browse through piles of books looking to discover the next great read. Perhaps unsurprisingly, The Brooklyn Novels by Daniel Fuchs was a big hit.

Thank you to all of those that stopped by our booth to explore our Godine books with us! We had a wonderful time with old friends and new.

We hope to see more of you at the Boston Book Festival on Saturday, October 27, 2012!
