Join Us for The Brooklyn Book Festival Kick-Off Party

The official Bookend event is always a good time

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and it ain’t even Christmas yet! Mid-September in Brooklyn is coming up and you know what that means: The Brooklyn Book Festival is back for its eleventh year. To kick off the week of events, we’re hosting the Official Opening Night Party along with Catapult, Literary Hub, PEN America, and Tumblr. The Party is a Bookend Event and will most notably feature free drinks* and dancing. New York-based turntablist DJ Shiftee will be providing the tunes / to make you swoon.

The party is set for Monday night, September 12th from 7–10 PM at The Bell House (149 7th Street in Brooklyn).

*Drinks will flow freely like the ambrosial rivers of Ancient Greece, that is, only for the first hour or until we run out. The event is 21+.
