There will be a dazzling amount of woman authors, including Joyce Carol Oates, Lynn Nottage, Zadie Smith, and the delightful Darcey Steinke, a wonderful display of Brooklyn’s own, including Jonathan Lethem,  and the always remarkable Salman Rushdie, among other giants.

The festival also includes a literary marketplace at the Borough Hall Plaza with exhibiting independent presses and literary organizations from around the country, in addition to independent bookstores. The festival opens with a week-long series of events, among them book receptions, readings and children’s events slated to be held in the weekdays prior to the Sunday event and hosted at Brooklyn bookstores, theaters, clubs and parks.
