SF Bay Area Book Events #1

I am attempting to make this a one stop place to find book signings in the San Francisco Bay Area!  I will mostly focus on YA books, but I will also include some general fiction if I think it will be of interest.

Oh, I loved Big, Little Lies!  This new book should be awesome.  Since this is an author that lives in Australia (and I doubt she gets to the U.S. often), I will definitely try to attend this event.
