The Bay Area is one of the most book-friendly places in the country and this festival is a testament to that fact. 9 blocks in downtown Berkeley will be dedicated to books, books, and more books. Themed blocks of booksellers, epic art installations, music, food, and word nerds as far as the eye can see. Special guests include heavy hitters like Judy Blume, Michael Chabon, W. Kamau Bell, Maxine Hong Kingston, Peter Coyote, Rebecca Solnit, Michelle Tea, and tons more. Find Last Gasp on Allston Street, between Milvia and Shattuck.
