Bay Area Book Festival 2016


I went to the Bay Area Book Festival in Downtown Berkeley. I love books but I haven't had much time to explore book stores and book events over the last six months or so. It was great to be back in that environment:











 And there were authors selling their work and forums to listen to authors speak about their work:

The great graphic artist/writer Daniel Clowes
Author Grier Cooper
Author Dave Zobel
Author Chani Petro
It is was a great time and I loved it:

  10. Ahh...books! I am nostalgic for the time before I had small children when I escaped for hours at a time in a great book! Some day I will get back there.

  11. Fabulous! And I must get those cat books. In fact, do you know if they have them for dogs? My dachshund has been asking a lot of deep questions lately.
