Book'toberfest 2014
A book industry trade show and craft beer tasting

logo for booktoberfest 2014

Come hoist a stein with fellow book lovers and our Mechanics’ Institute members who are involved in the publishing industry! Meet the staff from local book publishers and literary journals, and many indie-publishers who are eager to share their knowledge. Network with editors, writing coaches and teachers, conference organizers, book shepherds, and more at this trade show reminiscent of our historic industrial fairs (this time with beer).

If you are a reader, writer, or beer connoisseur, you’ll love the creative vibe, selection of locally crafted beer, and plethora of new books coming out by local writers and small publishers.

This year's attendees will be: San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, Zyzzyva, LitQuake, Fourteen Hills, Community of Writers at Squaw Valley, Ambush Review, Poetry Flash, Northern California Book Awards, Arroyo Literary Review, San Francisco Writers’ Conference, Stone Bridge Press, Napa Valley Writers’ Conference, San Francisco Public Press, and Cameron Books.

Graciously sponsored by:
