Last week, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz joined members of the Brooklyn Literary Council, top authors, publishing industry leaders, editors, and literary insiders to announce some of the renowned national and international authors scheduled to participate in the fourth annual Brooklyn Book Festival, which will take place Sunday, September 13, at Borough Hall, St. Francis College, and the Brooklyn Historical Society.

"At a time when the economic downturn is affecting the publishing industry, the Brooklyn Book Festival continues to support publishers big and small as well as authors around the world," said Johnny Temple, chair of the Brooklyn Literary Council.

This year's Brooklyn Book Festival will again feature a literary marketplace with more than 150 booksellers, publishers and literary organizations in Borough Hall Plaza as well as "reading rooms" inside historic Borough Hall. Programming will include panels and readings on an outdoor main stage facing Borough Hall's historic marble steps, a children's authors stage and special programming for teens and exhibitors that will include bookstores, publishers and literary organizations.
