brooklyn book festival

i have this wonderful conspiracy theory about why local branch libraries in brooklyn are always closed at the most (in)convenient times. so i was pretty well delighted to learn that this saturday is the first ever brooklyn book festival.

to be held downtown at borough hall, and with events running from 11am to 6pm, obviously i am honor bound to be in attendance. i personally wanna check out the poetry readings, of course, and see if there are any interesting literary journals to pick up. i mean, if "they" decide it's a good idea to make a stab at getting folks to appreciate literature of all sorts...well, that's pretty much part of my mission in life.
