About Bay Area Book Festival

The San Francisco Bay Area is a legendary literary mecca, the global capital of digital innovation, and a leader in social change. It's the perfect home for a world-class, free, international book festival celebrating the marvels of the written word. Taking place in downtown Berkeley, the two-day event burst onto the literary scene in June 2015 with a festival presenting 300 authors, streets filled with literary exhibitors, and a massive public art installation of a "library temple" made of 50,000 books for the public to take for free. The second event, held June 4-5, 2016, again featured 300 speakers from the Bay Area and around the world, Berkeley streets renamed "Literary Lane," "Radical Row," "Eco Alley" and filled with 230 exhibitors, a large Children's Area and stage, the return of the library-temple, and -- new for 2016 -- a mini film festival on cinema and literature created with the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive. The next festival is scheduled for June 3-4, 2017.
