brooklyn book festival!

  • About the author EB

This Sunday is another event we’ve all been waiting for—the Brooklyn Book Festival! We’ve already partnered with Brooklyn-Based to tell you all about our awesome authors’ panels and to offer a special, super-cheap deal, so I thought I’d use this post to:

1. tell you to come by our booth and say hi to me! I’ll be there all day selling my heart out, along with various other harper perennial marketing people and editors.

2. tell you that in addition to the previously mentioned super-cheap deal you can find on Brooklyn-Based, we’ll also be offering all our books at just $10 each even for those without the coupon, AND debuting our brand-new, very exciting HARPER PERENNIAL TOTE BAGS, free with your purchase of $20 or more.

3. suggest some of my favorite places in the area for lunch, including: Chipotle (185 montague street, needs no explanation), Cafe Luluc (214 smith street, vaguely french), Bar Tabac (128 smith street, more than vaguely french), Blue Marble (196 court street or 420 atlantic ave, ice cream, maybe not for lunch but definitely not-to-be-missed), and Clover Club (210 smith street, the best baked eggs you’ll ever have). There is also a Mexican place I prefer to Chipotle in the general vicinity that I will tell you about if you ask.
