Featuring rare, vintage, and out-of-print books from independent booksellers all over Brooklyn. This year’s featured Brooklyn writer, Paul Auster, reads “Auggie Wren’s Christmas Story” at 4 PM

For the second holiday season, independent Brooklyn bookshops and antiquarian booksellers

in a celebration of the borough’s rich history of printing, reading, and writing.

Building on the success of last December’s inaugural fair featuring Pete Hamill,
this year’s event includes an expanded range of local booksellers, from general-interest
open shops to specialized private dealers, and will conclude with a public reading
by Paul Auster of his Brooklyn holiday classic, “Auggie Wren’s Christmas Story.”
