Bay Area Book Festival 2022

 After a two-year absence because of COVID, the Bay Area Book Festival in Berkeley was back:

Rae Trujillo's book purses

And there were lots of local authors:

Dalila Caryn

Abigail Stewart and David Scott Hay with their books

Crystel Patterson

And a local artist:

Nigel Sussman and one of his pieces

And I bought some things, got to talk to the authors and had got them signed:

Got to love Steve Hermanos jacket and that is the reason I bought his book

Francesca Marie signing her comic for me

And the highlight was hearing award-winning journalist Danyel Smith speak and getting her book Shine Bright autographed:

The Bay Area Book Festival is always a wonderful time and I am it was back this year.
