Bay Area Book Events #53

Due to the enormous size of this list, I only show events about four weeks in advance.  There is also a master calendar that has all listings.

Bookstores in this list may include:  
A Great Good Place For Books (Oakland)
Barnes & Noble (various Bay Area Locations)
Books Inc. (various Bay Area Locations)
Book Passage (Corte Madera & San Francisco)
Borderlands Books (San Francisco)
Diesel, A Bookstore (Oakland) 
Green Apple Books (San Francisco)
Hicklebee's Children's Books (San Jose)
Kepler's Books (Menlo Park)
Mrs. Dalloway's (Berkeley)
Orinda Books (Orinda)
Pegasus Books (Berkeley & Oakland)
Point Reyes Bookstore (Point Reyes)
Rakestraw Books (Danville)
The Booksmith (San Francisco)
Town Center Books (Pleasanton)  

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 (There are simply too many events of those to list).  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.
