Join the Brooklyn Public Library’s Central Library for Pitch-a-Palooza, a Bookend Event of this year’s annual Brooklyn Book Festival, on Wednesday, September 17 at 7 p.m. This month’s Pitch-a-Palooza will feature the Book Doctors, Arielle Eckstut and David Henry Sterry.

The Book Doctors are often called the go-to resource for everything budding authors need to write, sell and market their books successfully. Eckstut and Sterry will give aspiring writers the chance of a lifetime – one minute to pitch their book ideas to a panel of publishing experts. The person with the best pitch receives an introduction to an agent. Books will be sold at this event.

The event will take place in the library’s Dweck Center.
