Book lovers around the San Francisco Bay Area will want to swing by Berkeley in the first weekend of June for the first Bay Area Book Festival. While there are a wide range of talks by writers, I’m excited to see some of the kid-friendly events, including readings on the children’s and teen stages.

Among the many draws is the Lacuna Book Project, a Kickstarter-funded reading space and library made of 50,000 books. Part quiet space, part library, part artwork, part book-lover’s dreamscape.

The event is free, though tickets are recommended to secure your place at crowded events. A Saturday evening event with Judy Blume requires paid tickets.

Festivities will happen around City Hall, which is a couple of blocks from the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Details: June 6 & 7, 10am – 6pm (excluding the Judy Blume event), Downtown Berkeley BART station, free admission for most events (though you can reserve tickets for events).
