Come to Brooklyn Heights and make a day of it: Great weather is forecast for today's Brooklyn Book Festival as well as other nearby events including the Montague Street Summer Space and Smorgasburg.
The Brooklyn Book Festival: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Brooklyn Borough Hall and Plaza, Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn is a not to be missed Mecca for lovers of the printed word. The festival attracts thousands of book lovers to enjoy authors, speakers, readings, a kids tent and a book marketplace. Authors include: Paul Auster, Carol Higgins Clark, Tony Danza, Jimmie Walker, Edwidge Danticat, Pete Hamill, Joyce Carol Oates, Terry McMillan, Judith Viorst, Libba Bray and many, many more.
Smorgasburg in the Tobacco Warehouse, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Roughly 75 food vendors -- from Teriyaki balls to Mexican sandwiches -- set up inside the roofless warehouse. Buy what you like then find a shady knoll in the park and make a picnic.
