Publishing Trendsetter is a production of Market Partners International and Publishing Trends.

Brooklyn Book Festival 2011

Trendsetter is dedicated to the idea that book business (and its future) is everywhere—not just in New York City. But I would be remiss not to point you all toward an event that I love that’s taking place this weekend in a part of New York that I love even more. The Brooklyn Book Festival is going to be happening all this weekend, and it’s full of exactly the kind of book-culture I want more of: reader-focused, all ages, all genres, diverse and joyful.

Brooklyn Book Festival 2010, Borough Hall

I hope to see you there this weekend (or to wipe the floor with you tonight at PEN America‘s Literary Pub Quiz), and if you are far away from Brooklyn tonight, I hope you find—or even better create—the same kind of book culture we’re enjoying this weekend here. Because Book Country is so much bigger than some Big Apple.
