Archipelago Yo

Here is the Brooklyn Book Festival Dispatch from The Millions (A Blog About Books). Million's dispatcher writes in about the only neighborhood where writers spend about as much time looking for a parking space as they do hitting the letters.

"...that wonderful Brooklyn admixture of charm, originality, and public-mindedness tempered by self-satisfaction were palpable all around. "

"...for my money the most interesting house in Brooklyn is Archipelago. These guys, like Dalkey and NYRB are putting out translations of serious works of fiction from around the world, in beautiful editions. "

Also, Chekhov's Mistress has posted a 60 second video of the festival.
