I only attended one panel at the Brooklyn Book Festival this year, but it was fantastic! The panelists were Felix Gilman, N.K. Jemisin, and Naomi Novik, and the talk was moderated by Lev Grossman. The authors read short excerpts from their most recent novels, then answered questions from Grossman and the audience.
All of the panelists were extremely articulate, funny, and engaging. They had some interesting things to say about the fantasy genre and writing in general. Grossman was also an excellent moderator, asking great questions and making everyone laugh with his witty asides. Check out the links to the authors’ books down below!
