About Us

The Bay Area Book Festival is Northern California's biggest literary event. The Bay Area is teeming with readers, writers, creators, and thinkers. We have harnessed the power of this community to create one of the premier literary festivals in the world. The Festival is a two-day event complete with literary sessions presenting over 200 top authors from this region, the nation, and the world (more than 20 countries), along with an outdoor fair with hundreds of literary exhibitors. We also offer events for kids and writing contests.

We transform vibrant Downtown Berkeley into a literary utopia where readers of all ages and interests can find kindred spirits. The festival features over 150 sessions on subjects like voter suppression, women's rights, economic justice, prison reform, food justice, immigration reform, as well as mystery and fiction writing. This years theme is based on "Moments of Revelations" we find in writing and reading great literature.
