October is National Book Month, originally launched by the National Book Foundation as a way to promote reading as an important part of our culture. One great way to celebrate: participate in the Brooklyn Book Festival, now through October 4. Note that the festival is a combination of in-person and virtual events, with most of the virtual events taking place from 5:00 - 10:00 p.m. eastern time each day.
"There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book." ~Marcel Proust
