Join The Common at the 2015 Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, September 20!
Come see us at Booth #145, where we’ll be selling copies of The Common and giving away TC-themed goodies!
At 12:00pm, Jennifer Acker, Editor in Chief of The Common, will be moderating “Falling Through,” a panel discussion featuring Akhil Sharma (author of Family Life), Rivka Galchen (American Innovations), and Seth Greenland (I Regret Everything), three acclaimed authors fascinated with characters who fall short of their aspirations. Since the days of Don Quixote, writers have obsessed over impossible dreamers, and readers have clamored for their stories. What makes these narratives so compelling? The panel will take place at Saint Francis McCardle Hall (180 Remsen Street).
The Brooklyn Book Festival is the largest free literary event in New York City, presenting an array of national and international literary stars and emerging authors. One of America’s premier book festivals, this hip, smart diverse gathering attracts thousands of book lovers of all ages to enjoy authors and the festival’s lively literary marketplace.
