Bay Area Book Events #28

Normally, due to the enormous size of this list, I only show events about 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 may include:  
Barnes & Noble (various Bay Area Locations)
Book Passage (Corte Madera & San Francisco)
The Booksmith (San Francisco)
Books Inc. (various Bay Area Locations)
Pegasus Books (Berkeley & Oakland)
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 do not list non-fiction books.  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  book 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.

From Book Passage:

The Caldecott Medal is given every year to the most distinguished illustrated book for children. But what is the Mock Caldecott? These somewhat cheeky programs are held all over the country, and they provide readers a chance to get a jump on the awards and have a little fun doing it. During this evening of wine and discussion, we’ll read the criteria by which the American Library Association judges books for this prestigious award. Then we’ll use that criteria to judge a list of books ourselves according to those rules and vote on the winners.
