2017.10.12 Another Smashing Hit: The 2017 Brooklyn Book Festival
One of the largest book fairs on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard—the Brooklyn Book Festival (BKBF)—was held from September 11th to September 17th, 2017. The Festival, which takes place at the beginning of autumn every year, marked its 12th occasion this year. Tens of thousands of people descended on downtown Brooklyn in the lingering summer heat. 

This year, over 200 booksellers and publishers took part in the Festival, and more than 300 well-known authors from around the world gathered to enjoy the moment with their fans. Throughout the week, more than 60 events geared towards people of all ages were held at libraries, churches, parks and various venues throughout Brooklyn. The setup was wide-ranging, and included lectures, movie showings, book signings, and panel discussions.  

On the first day, September 11th, the influential singer-songwriter and poet Patti Smith presented her new book "Devotion" released on September 12th. Her earlier work, "Patti Smith Complete", has been translated and published in Japanese. At BKBF, a multitude of books comprising an extensive genre are introduced with a broad readership in mind, such as non-fiction, poetry, and graphic novels aimed at the younger crowd. 

A family-friendly Children's Day was held on Saturday, September 16th. The young bookworms soaked up the day replete with fun events as they listened to stories directly from their favorite authors; built crafts together; dressed up as characters from picture books; and enjoyed book-readings. There were yoga sessions for children, as well as musical performances. Furthermore, two authors from the New York Times best-selling list—Maira Kalman, writer of the children's book "Fireboat: The Heroic Adventures of the John J. Harvey"; and Jacqueline Woodson of "Miracle's Boys"—joined the Children's Day forum, too. 

Most of the events at BKBF are free of charge. There are more participants each year, and more interesting forums added to the Festival as the years go by. If you are interested, why not come to the next Festival?
