Festival Info

We’re looking for volunteers!

The Brooklyn Book Festival welcomes and appreciates volunteers at the festival. There are a variety of festival posts for volunteers (from author escorts to line monitors and photographers) who help us make the biggest, free literary festival in NYC run smoothly! We accept volunteers from 18 years of age or older and offer a short mandatory training session a couple weeks before the festival. Book Festival volunteers should be enthusiastic, courteous and bring a positive spirit to the festival.

If you would like to volunteer for the festival, please fill out this form.
