If you’re in the greater New York area and aren’t afraid of throngs of hipsters all in one central portion of Brooklyn, then you should hustle out this weekend to see our own David Ulin and Elizabeth Crane at the Brooklyn Book Festival. Here’s where you can catch them:

1:00 P.M. The Other Coast: Stories from L.A.
Emma Straub (Laura Lamont’s Life in Pictures) Seth Greenland (The Angry Buddhist) andKarolina Waclawiak (How to Get Into the Twin Palms) read and discuss their books that bring to life the golden-age of Hollywood stars, politicking in the California desert and hidden life in the private clubs of L.A. Moderated by David Ulin (The Lost Art of Reading).
St. Francis McArdle (180 Remsen Street)
2:00 P.M. Secrets Secrets Are Some Fun.
How does a writer decide what to keep from the characters, narrator, or audience? Elizabeth Crane(We Only Know So Much), John Burnham Schwartz (Northwest Corner) and Kurt Andersen(True Believers) discuss how they tell secrets, but they won’t tell them all! Moderated by Ben Greenman (What He’s Poised to Do).
