This will be the second year that Poets Wear Prada joins the vast array of literary stars, emerging authors, publishing industry leaders, editors, and literary insiders participating at the Festival and who represent the exciting world of literature today.  Roxanne Hoffman, Publisher and Senior Editor of Poets Wear Prada who shared a table with another small press, Pleasure Boat Studio, last year  will have her own table this year and states she is already "gearing up" for the event. 

The mostly outdoor festival takes place rain or shine. Last year, despite inclement weather, hundreds of book lovers stopped by to meet and chat with the authors and editors of  Poet Wear Prada as more than 20,000 visitors and media from around the world converged on Borough Hall. "It rained a little, but there were lots of smiling faces, readings, authors and so many delicious books to choose from.  Even with a few rain drops and a chill in the air, folks stopped by to chat with us and share a few stories. I enjoyed hanging out with Roxanne Hoffman, my publisher, authors Patricia Carragon and Joel Allegretti. It was also great sharing a table with Pleasure Boat Studio authors and enjoying the positive vibe,"  blogs Tantra-zawadi, author of "Gathered at Her Sky: Life Poems" (Poets Wear Prada, 2010).
