Sunday Morning at the Brooklyn Book Festival

AUTHOR DAVID REES promised Brooklyn Artisan that he will hold forth on “artisanal everything” when he’s interviewed by Sam Anderson of the New York Times this Sunday, September 23,  at 11 am on the Brooklyn Book Festival’s Main Stage. Recently published by Brooklyn-based Melville House, Rees’s book How to Sharpen Pencils was admiringly covered by the New Yorker after an excerpt appeared in Dumbo-based’s blog. Etsy referred respectfully to the book by its full title: How To Sharpen Pencils: A Practical & Theoretical Treatise on the Artisanal Craft of Pencil Sharpening for Writers, Artists, Contractors, Flange Turners, Anglesmiths, & Civil Servants. 

 Check below for a Brooklyn Artisan guest blogger’s response to’s excerpt.
