If you’ve never been to the Bay Area Book Festival, put it on your calendar for this year. This fabulous gathering of writers and readers in Berkeley takes over the area below UC Berkeley, filling several streets with tents full of publishing companies, writers groups, and even stalls selling writing-related gifts. It’s easily accessible by BART. You can pay tiny fee to attend some of the most popular author talks or get a wristband to be sure you get a seat…but otherwise admission is free. (On Saturday, there’s also a Farmers Market with amazing food items of all kinds.) CLICK for details on the BABF. https://www.baybookfest.org/
This year we are sharing a tent with our literary partner Mechanics’ Institute, so stop by and say hello to Taryn Edwards and Barbara Santos.
COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITY: If you are available either day for any amount of time we’d love to have you in the booth! You can even bring your book to display while you are there. Contact Barbara@SFWriters.org.
