Thirty writers will showcase their books at the Castro Valley Library’s Book Fair on Saturday, May 21 from 1 pm to 4 pm. This event will feature writers of fiction and nonfiction books in a wide variety of genres and topics. Patrons can chat with authors, buy signed books, enter a prize drawing, and enjoy light refreshments. No tickets are required for this free library event.

In addition to CVBookFair2015-1shopping for books, you’ll have a chance to learn about writing and publishing. Some of the authors also will be forming panels to discuss their experiences:

1 pm to 1:45 pm: “A Many-Splendored Thing: Romance Writing in All Its Variety”

2 pm to 2:45 pm: “The Independent Path: Lessons in Self-Publishing from Local Authors”

3 pm to 3:45 pm: “Creating Your Self-Help Book with Passion and Purpose”

Both professionally and independently published authors will be on hand. You could meet Camille Minichino, author of a series of mysteries based on the periodic table of elements. Felicia Quijano-Beck, a local high school student, will be offering her young adult fiction book. Jessica Okui will be selling her books about origami and crafting with Washi tape. Mark Vaz is the author of books on film history and popular culture. And C’Anna Bergman-Hill will be here with a memoir about her time as a special education teacher. Chris Guillory will offer a sci-fi thriller. And that’s just a sample!

The ever-expanding variety of ways for writers to get their work published in print and online means more people can put their stories out into the world. With this event the Castro Valley Library has become part of the pipeline from local authors to their readers. Please plan on stopping by to learn about the writers in our midst and be inspired by our vibrant literary community.
