Brooklyn Book Festival (209 Joralemon Street, Brooklyn @ 10 AM)

bkbookfest Introducing The BKBF Interview, where authors share their favorite books, reflect on who turned them into readers, and plan the Brooklyn Book Festival event they’d most like to see. First up: TAYARI JONES! @tayari⠀ -⠀ Here's a snippet, below; for the full interview, click link in bio!⠀ -⠀ BKBF: Tell us your best book-receiving experience. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ TAYARI JONES: I would love to tell you about it, but it involves a lot of subterfuge and secretive handoffs. But here is the best I can do without compromising my sources. The book in question isn’t quite a book, it’s more like a limited edition broadside. The prose is by [REDACTED] with artwork by [REDACTED]. Apparently, the writer and the artist were great friends when the broadside was created and by the time it was produced, not so much. All the broadsides were destroyed, except one. (Probably more like five or six.) But anyway, [REDACTED] smuggled it out of a supply closet at a Midwestern university and presented it to me on my birthday. (I am so glad he didn’t propose at that moment because I would have said yes, and basically ruined my life) Anyway, the broadside is in my safety deposit box in Jersey City because I am scared to show it to anyone.⠀ -⠀ #bkbf #bkbookfest

If you’re looking for the next great read, then head to this annual book festival! Over 300 authors from around the world and 250 booksellers. 

This year the festival features authors such as Rumaan Alam, Martin Amis Jennifer Egan, Tayari Jones, Akwaeke Emezi, Laura Lippmann, Terry McMillan, Carmen Maria Machado, Joyce Carol Oates, Greg Pardlo, Hermione Hoby, A.M.
