SF Bay Area Events #4

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.  I think this is an extensive list, but there is always the possibility that I missed an event (Hey, I'm human).  If you think there is an event that I should include, please leave me a note in the comments section.  Thanks.

All graphics have links to GoodReads so you can check them out.

As always, it is a good idea to call the store a day or two before to confirm that the scheduled event is still on.  I have learned that these events change constantly.

If you want to see this in a calendar, please go to the Events page on my blog: SF Bay Area Events
