Bay Area Book Festival | Downtown Berkeley
Over the weekend of April 28th and 29th, 2018, the fourth annual Bay Area Book Festival will fill downtown Berkeley with a literary extravaganza that offers pleasure to anyone who has ever loved a book.
Whether you’re a fan of science fiction or history, of fiction or memoir, of poetry or food writing, of children’s literature or science, come experience one of the best book festivals on the planet!
The Bay Area is teeming with readers, writers, creators, and thinkers. The Festival is a two-day event complete with sessions presenting top authors from this region, the nation, and the world, along with an outdoor fair with hundreds of literary exhibitors. Keep your eyes open for art installations, events for kids, and writing contests. There will even be a mini film festival — a series of ten films on literature — with BAMPFA. Downtown Berkeley will be transformed into a literary utopia where readers of all ages and interests can find kindred spirits.
