"Brooklyn Book Festival"

On Sunday in Brooklyn, as people are standing in line to hear Pulitzer Prize winners Jennifer Egan and Jhumpa Lahiri, others will be parking their strollers so Adam Mansbach can sign copies of his alt-parenting book "Go the F-- to Sleep." The Brooklyn Book Festival has become New York City's preeminent public daylong literary event — even though it takes place across the river from Manhattan, the epicenter of publishing.
