Bay Area Book Festival ~ Sneak Preview From My Visit!

I came away with 12 signed books from the Bay Area Book Festival!!!

Last weekend (Saturday, May 4th and Sunday, May 5th) was the 5th annual Bay Area Book Festival in downtown Berkeley, California. 

I've attended the Bay Area Book Festival annually since its inception in 2015. This year, I attended the festival both days with my husband and we had a full on blast as usual! Lucky me, I attended 6 awesome author events and came away with 12 signed books by the various author during the Bay Area Book Festival (see above photograph).

In fact, there were so many amazing author talks and book signing events throughout both days of the Bay Area Book Festival (as well as an outdoor fair to visit), that it was difficult to determine which events to attend as many of these events occurred at the same time or at overlapping times... But never fear,  my husband and I made the best of our time during this annual book festival! 

I'm still pretty pooped out from attending the Bay Area Book Festival this past weekend. Plus, I am also busy doing my normal daily activities, so I will be writing about my adventures at the Bay Area in more detail in two separate posts later this week. 

In the mean time, enjoy a few photos taken during our time spent at the outdoor fair at the Bay Area Book Festival below. There was live music being performed, food vendors selling a variety of delicious foods, free outdoor author speaking events, children's activities, indie bookstores selling books, individual authors selling their novels at booths, and more.

  1. Hi Lisa,
    Lovely to meet you in person this past weekend! I hope you will enjoy reading my Faerie Legacy Series as much as I loved writing it!

    1. Yes, indeed!! I heard Joyce Carol Oates speak with Andre Alexis. They were the first two speakers we heard @ the Bay Area Book Festival.
