Bay Area Book Festival 2017


I went to the Bay Area Book Festival in streets of Downtown Berkeley. As usual it was a wonderful time in meeting a lot of talented authors and seeing what they have written:



The creators of the Little Lemon That Leapt" -Karen Sanders Betts and Hannah Howerton
Katie Mullaly of the Land of Children series

Richard DiGiacomo who signed the book I bought from him "Historical Gems of the San Francisco Bay Area"

Alexis E. Fajardo of the Kid Beowulf series

E.M. Markoff and her book




Illustrator Wendy MacNaughton signing some books
Tanita Ross-Cady signing her book Estranged Behavior (a great read) for me
It was a wonderful time and as they say:

  5. My whole family would love to be there. I finally got my 9 year old into reading. The 11 year old has always liked to read.

  6. I bet that book on the historic gems of the San Francisco area will be reflected here in your many photo tours of the sights you visit in the days and months to come, Patrick! So we are blessed by that man's writing through you! How cool is that! It's sort of like a double, triple, and on and on kind of blessing! Thanks for sharing about your journeys here, my friend! It's always a treat to visit!

  12. This would be so much fun! Sometimes it seems that online reading has taken the fun out of holding an actual book in your hand and reading. There is nothing like a real book and I'm happy that you shared this adventure with us at Celebrate Your Story. Have an awesome weekend!

  17. Can't miss the wonderful styling and interior at this place. As I walked upstairs, my eyes wandered about the brick wall interior and the overall décor. This is by far one of the best venues in Chicago to organize event.
