Bay Area Book Festival June 3 & 4

A Festival for Books? At Greeneroo, we LOVE books, not just green ones but all kinds of books on travel, geology, conservation, and even the winemaker detective series.

Over the weekend of June 3rd and 4th, 2017, the third 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!

There are 86 sessions, many have several speakers, so many subjects and multiple locations.  You’ll want to get your most organized friends to help you plan your 2 day agenda. Some sessions will be full, so go early.
