I'm mobility-impaired and can't go to sell my books this year. But Leonard Lopate book club and Brooklyn Book Festival fans will love Erica Miles' DAZZLED BY DARKNESS/SEEING THINGS IN BROOKLYN, about a 1960's mixed race romance between a highly imaginative, but troubled Jewish girl and a Latino black guy who aspires to be the most controversial artist in America. Many scenes set in Brooklyn, including at the Brooklyn Museum. Available on Amazon.

Might be worth mentioning the NY Art Book Fair at PS1 in Queens. A huge event with indy art book publishers from around the world.
