Jonathan Soffer at the Brooklyn Book Festival

Jonathan Soffer, Ed KochJonathan Soffer, author of the forthcoming Ed Koch and the Rebuilding of New York City will be on what promises to be an excellent panel at this year’s Brooklyn Book Festival on Sunday, September 12.

Soffer’s panel, “Change Gonna Come: The Fluid Life of New York City,” will be from 1-2 and be held at the Brooklyn Historical Society.

Here’s a description of the panel:

Change is Gonna Come: The Fluid Life of New York City

In a city like New York, change is constant. Yet coupled with that change comes numerous and often times competing interests. Sharon Zukin (Naked City), Roberta Brandes Gratz (The Battle for Gotham) and Martin Lemelman (Two Cents Plain) consider the perpetual ebb and flow of The Big Apple and how it affects us all. Moderated by Phillip Lopate (Waterfront).

The Brooklyn Book Festival is one of, if not the best literary event in New York City, gathering some of the best writers from the New York City area and the world.
