Bookish Brooklyn with Heather O’Donnell

4def098c-6a2b-4e4c-a3dd-0d535bfba843

Heather O’Donnell, owner of Honey & Wax Booksellers, is our guide to bookish Brooklyn.

A few years ago Heather O’Donnell of Honey & Wax Books left her job selling rare books on Madison Avenue to launch Honey & Wax Booksellers in Brooklyn. At that time she found “There was no established rare book scene in the borough – no galleries, no auctions, no fairs – but the active interest and investment in print culture, old and new, made Brooklyn seem like a promising place to develop new collectors.” And she asserts, “Over the past decade … 21st-century Brooklyn has emerged as a vital center – if not the center – of reading and writing in the New York City area.”

 

Historically, she noted, Brooklyn has long had its historic claims to literary greatness: Walt Whitman and Hart Crane, Betty Smith and Richard Wright, Thomas Wolfe and Henry Miller to name a few authors associated with Manhattan’s neighbor.

 

“There was already a wide (and expanding) range of ambitious secondhand dealers,” she wrote in a recent email, “from deep generalists like P.S. Bookshop and Book Thug Nation to more specialized open shops like Unnameable Books, Freebird Books & Goods, and Terrace Books.”

 

“Booksellers like Singularity & Co. and Molasses Books have been experimenting with new business models, publishing under their own imprints as well as selling,” she added.

 

For the past two years, the Brooklyn Holiday Book Fair at the Old Stone House in Park Slope has served as an annual one-day showcase for vintage, out-of-print, and secondhand booksellers in Brooklyn. This year’s event on Saturday, December 6 will be its third year.

 

This fall Marvin Getman launched the first large-scale rare book fair in Brooklyn, in Greenpoint’s new convention center: the Brooklyn Antiques and Book Fair, which drew dealers from across the eastern seaboard. There are plans to reprise the event in September of 2015.

 

“So,” she pointed out, “there is definitely momentum, in terms of creating an audience for rare books here.”

 

Other examples that the life of the mind is alive and well and living in Brooklyn include a literary pub crawl through Brooklyn Heights that covers the waterfront, celebrating the dive bars and neighborhood joints of the neighborhood’s legendary writers, held on Sundays this Fall.

 

The Brooklyn Book Festival is now the largest free literary event in the city, drawing tens of thousands to Borough Hall each September. Independent literary and critical journals like n+1, Cabinet, and Slice offer an alternative to mainstream quarterlies (As Malcolm Gladwell smugly remarked: “Intelligent thought is not dead in New York. It has simply moved to Brooklyn.").

 

Local small presses sign authors too offbeat or specialized for the big houses, often to surprising success: see Melville House’s iconic Art of the Novella series, Akashic’s blockbuster Go The F**k to Sleep, and Archipelago’s prescient translations of Karl Ove Knausgaard.

 

Booklyn Artists Alliance in Greenpoint and the Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg showcase the work of book artists, famous and anonymous. Fine presses like Strike Three Press and Ugly Duckling produce inventive limited editions, while quirky public reading rooms like Proteus Gowanus and Mellow Pages encourage casual browsing and conversation.

 

“Brooklyn,” she wrote, “is home to some of the city’s most ambitious independent bookstores, providing their neighborhoods with a constant stream of signings, readings, and events: DUMBO’s (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge) Power House Arena, Cobble Hill’s BookCourt, Park Slope’s Community Bookstore, Fort Greene’s Greenlight Bookstore, Williamsburg’s Spoonbill & Sugartown, Greenpoint’s WORD. Smaller shops, like Berl’s Brooklyn Poetry Shop and Idlewild (dedicated to travel books), offer greater depth in their areas of expertise.

 

So while it may be true, as Thomas Wolfe famously said, “that only the dead know Brooklyn,” here’s a list provided by Heather and some links researched by AE to bring AE Monthly readers up to speed on one of America’s most thriving literary and bookish enclaves and encourage them to visit the area in person and via the internet.

 

Because Heather is our tour guide we take the liberty to list her first and include a few words about her distinguished background.

 

Honey & Wax Booksellers: www.honeyandwaxbooks.com

O’Donnell grew up in the library stacks and bookstore aisles of suburban Delaware. In 1989, she moved to New York City, where she studied English at Columbia, and held down a series of bookish jobs on the side: working the cash register at the Strand, shelving photo books in the Avery Library, sifting the slush pile at Grand Street.

 

While writing her doctoral dissertation in the Yale English department, she worked as a curatorial assistant at the Beinecke Library, where she developed an eye for rare books.

 

From 2001 to 2004, she joined the Princeton Society of Fellows, teaching in the English and American Studies programs, and then left academia to pursue the rare book trade full-time.

 

For seven years, she was a bookseller in the flagship New York gallery of Bauman Rare Books, dealing in a wide range of material, from incunabula to modern firsts, Shakespeare to Audubon to Churchill.

 

In the fall of 2011, she founded Honey & Wax Booksellers in Brooklyn. The firm has so far issued three striking catalogs, each one with the header: “Use BOOKS as BEES use FLOWERS. Reach her at heather@honeyandwaxbooks.com.

 

Here are numerous other links to the local scene. In some cases AE has taken a few words of description from their web pages.
