Hundreds of top authors and participants will join bibliophiles, booksellers, and literary organizations at the Brooklyn Book Festival on 14 stages featuring more 90 panels, workshops and readings.
At the Dorothy Parker Society table, find out about the new book Under the Table: A Dorothy Parker Cocktail Guide, coming in November from Lyons Press and written by DPS president Kevin Fitzpatrick. He will also have available for sale A Journey into Dorothy Parker’s New York (Roaring Forties Press) and The Lost Algonquin Round Table: Humor, Fiction, Journalism, Criticism and Poetry From America’s Most Famous Literary Circle (Donald Books). Kevin will also be announcing a new project at the Festival.
Sharing the booth is author Jamie Brenner, talking about her romantic historical novel The Gin Lovers (St. Martin’s Press). It was praised by Fresh Fiction as one of the Top Thirteen Books to read in 2013. Writing under the pen name Logan Belle, Jamie is the author of Miss Chatterley (Pocket Star/Simon & Schuster), a modern day re-telling of D.H. Lawrence’s erotic classic Lady Chatterley’s Lover. Writing as Logan Belle, she published the erotic romance Bettie Page Presents: The Librarian (Pocket Star), which has been translated into a dozen languages, and the erotic burlesque trilogy Blue Angel (Kensington).
