Half block party, half book bash, PAGE TURNER: The AAWW Food & Books Festival is an unforgettable all-day free public fair that will bring together more than 60 writers and performers and the best of Brooklyn culinary culture. Drop by Roulette and the YWCA in Downtown Brooklyn on Saturday, October 5, 2013, grab a cup of Pearl Milk Tea, chomp on a dumpling, and prepare to have your heart opened and your mind blown.

Yes, this will be the most ambitious event we’ve ever done. Yes, you should bring your whole family for the Brooklyn foodie stands and kid-friendly craft workshops. No, you will not have to pay a dime. And yes, we are still unrepentant bookworms.

Check out the line-up and reserve your spot forthwith!
