Weekend of Books in Brooklyn

Be sure to visit Bank Street Book Store at Brooklyn's MetroTech Center on Saturday, September 16 and Sunday, September 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the annual Brooklyn Book Festival. Young readers and their families will find a stellar selection of books for fall reading and long beyond. Authors and illustrators will be on hand for meeting, greeting, and signing so join us for two great days of browsing and buying books!

Choose Kind
