Bay Area Book Events #18

This has become such a monstrously large list, that I have decided to only show events four weeks in advance.  The master calendar will continue to show all the events I can find that are listed on each bookstore's site.

Bookstores in this list include:  
Barnes & Noble (various Bay Area Locations)
Book Passage (Corte Madera & San Francisco)
Books Inc. (various Bay Area Locations)
Hicklebee's Children's Books (San Jose)
A Great Good Place For Books (Oakland)
Kepler's Books (Menlo Park) 

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.

  1. What a fantastic idea! I wish someone did this for the Chicago area. I feel like I never know what events are happening around here.

    1. Thank you, Nicole. I don't know if my listings are helpful or not. But I hope to provide information that will be useful to others. I often go to these events are there aren't that many people attending! I want these events to continue so I am hoping that if we get more people out there, more authors will come to the Bay Area.
