The Battle of Brooklyn, fought in 1776 on land that is now a part of Green-Wood, was the first battle of the American Revolution to be waged after the signing of the Declaration of Independence. On the 240th anniversary of the Battle of Brooklyn, Green-Wood hosts a day of free commemoration ceremonies and 18th-century living. See parades, cannon fire, horses, re-enactments and historic cooking. Living history events and activities will offer kids a real feel for life during the American Revolution. This is a great event for kids and families!

Are we ever really ready for the time when the bell tolls? If we’re open to talking about it, we might be a least a little more prepared. This panel – an official 2016 Brooklyn Book Festival Event – will explore the complex relationship between death, dying, and the hereafter, and how any such understanding is shaped by the meaning we give to our own lives. It’s heavy stuff, but our guest presenters will guide you through with wisdom, direction and even a sense of humor. Presenters include Dale Allison (Night Comes, published by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company), Amy Cunningham (blogger at The Inspired Funeral and founder of Fitting Tribute Funeral Services), and Benjamin Mitchell-Yellin (Near-Death Experiences: Understanding Visions of the Afterlife, published by Oxford University Press).
