Brokelyn Special Events

Brooklyn Book Festival after party: Our next book swap!

Poster by Meghan Doherty.

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
