If I ever make it to the book fair today, the two panels I would like to check out are:
4:00 p.m. Kevin Powell and Naomi Wolf in Conversation
Borough Hall Community Room (209 Joralemon St.)
Author/activists Kevin Powell (No Sleep Till Brooklyn) and Naomi Wolf (Give Me Liberty) explore the nexus of literature and politics. Followed by Q&A. Moderated by Jennifer Baumgardner.
3:00 p.m. Ian MacKaye and Thurston Moore in Conversation
St. Francis Auditorium (180 Remsen Street)
Two of the most influential musicians of the past 20 years—MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, The Evens) and Moore (Sonic Youth, Mirror/Dash)—discuss the parallel worlds of independent music and book publishing. Followed by Q&A. Introduced by Johnny Temple.
Let’s see if I leave Fort Greene…
Apparently someone agrees with me on one of the sessions.
