BookFairEventkeeperPic2017Best-selling author Lisa See will be the keynote speaker for the Castro Valley Book Fair, which features book sales from 30 local writers plus panel discussions on Saturday, May 6 from 11:30 am to 4 pm. No tickets are required for this free library event.

Lisa See, author of 10 beloved books including On Gold Mountain, Shanghai Girls, and the newly released The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, will present live via Skype from her home in L.A. at 11:30 am. See will share stories about her life as a writer, her writing process, and current and future projects. The event will be fully interactive and questions are welcome.

The Book Fair opens at 1 pm, immediately following See’s address, and will feature writers of fiction and nonfiction books in a wide variety of genres and topics. Both professionally and independently published authors will be on hand. Patrons can chat with authors, buy signed books, and enjoy light refreshments.

You’ll also have a chance to learn about writing and publishing in two informative panel discussions:

1:30 pm to 2:30 pm: “Murder on the Mind: Writing Riveting Mysteries”

3 pm to 4 pm: “Putting Your Life on the Line: Writing a Memoir”

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.
