that inspired and launched projects cross the word. We’ll be found at the South Stage, 3pm. But stick around before and after to soak up all the Brooklyn litness: from Jonathan Franzen to Terry McMllian, there will be dozens of terrific writers to see, as well, and booths to visit all day long. Looking for a conversation starter? try, “So what’s your six-word memoir?” Trust us, it always works. (Shameless plug: stop by the Housing Works Bookstore table for all your book-buying needs.)
