At this point New Yorkers know Brooklyn’s reputation as the land of literary magazines, or as the Guardian called it, “a writers’ mecca.”
Therefore, it's no surprise more than 280 authors and swarms of bibliophiles are gathering in the borough to celebrate one of the most prominent literary events of the year: the 2012 Brooklyn Book Festival.
HuffPost has personally curated our favorites from the festival below. Happy reading!
The main Festival events are Sunday from 10AM to 6PM at Brooklyn Borough Hall and Plaza, 209 Joralemon Street. Other "Bookend" events are being held at various locations and times throughout the weekend.
