Beautiful day, great panels, huge crowd, books everywhere. Big cheers for an awesome Brooklyn Book Festival.
“Characters on Characters” panel featuring Dennis Lehane, Edwidge Danticat, and Walter Mosley. By far my favorite panel comment came from Dennis Lehane, talking about the “literary fiction” he is absolutely not interested in: “I don’t care about a middle-aged professor having an affair with his student written by a middle-aged professor having an affair with his student.”
There was always a flurry of activity at the Greenlight Bookstore booth.
