The arrival of a new Torah at the Brooklyn Book Festival

The lecture on romance novels at the Main Stage in Borough Hall Plaza was just finishing up--- mostly I was annoyed by the three women authors, mostly they tried to defend their genre, mostly by saying how much money it generated for publishing, 1.7 billion, and I thought, yes but you are perpetuating a stereotype that the woman's journey ends when she gets the man, and pornography makes billions as well so how is that justification, when all of a sudden I heard singing as a new Torah arrived for a Brooklyn synagogue. It was pretty flashy, fun, and everyone was dancing around the plaza.
