The only thing Brooklyn has more of than artisanal foodie events is writers. Ever feel like you are the only person on the F train who hasn’t published a book? Well polish up the 30-second pitch because the seventh annual Brooklyn Book Festival is next week with events every evening and culminating on Sunday, Sept. 23 with a full day of biblio-shmoozing and literati events at Brooklyn Borough Hall.
Knowing writers, we think you’ll be ready for a drink after all that brain exercise. Come join us for a special Book-lyn edition of the Brokelyn Bookswappers Club just a few blocks from Borough Hall at the chic local writers hub Vineapple Café in Brooklyn Heights. Mingle with fellow Brooklyn bibliophiles and talk up your tome over $4/$5 pints and vino!
For swap currency, bring your contemporary classics, Oprah’s Book Club approved modern masters of fiction and anything Brooklyn-themed, by Brooklyn authors or by any of the +280 writers that are participating in the Book Festival (Tony Danza wrote a book?).
The swap starts at 7pm at Vineapple Café, 71 Pineapple St., Brooklyn Heights. RSVP on Facebook.
