Justine Bateman — Brooklyn Book Festival, Brooklyn, NY

With:

LET’S TALK ABOUT BEING FAMOUS: Most dictionary definitions of fame start by noting it is a state of being widely known and widely recognized, which can be both cool and a curse. Does being famous open doors or box one in? Is privacy undervalued in our reality based contemporary times? Actor/authors Justine Bateman (Fame), and Omar Epps (From Fatherless to Fatherhood) talk about how fame impacts one’s life in real time, about fame as a by-product of talent and work rather than a goal and about dealing with being famous. Moderated by Johnny Temple, Chair, Brooklyn Literary Council.

Location: Main Stage, Borough Hall Plaza
