Just a few examples: Salman Rushdie spoke with novelist, poet and dancer Tishani Doshi about her new novel The Pleasure Seekers; Nobel Prize–winner Paul Krugman and economist Robin Wells spoke about the economy with Jeff Madrick and Robert Silvers, editor of the New York Review of Books. Novelist Helen Simonson discussed her first book (a hit) Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, while Paul Auster conversed with John Ashbery, this year’s 2010 Brooklyn Book Festival BoBi Award winner.
Once again, the Brooklyn Book Festival was both great fun and a great literary event.
