15th Annual SF Book Fair is Saturday and Sunday, March 13 and 14, 2010. Complete info at website http//sfbookfair.wordpress.comValet bike parking? Wonder what kind of tip you're expected to (not) give.
Book publishers, vendors and other tablers (so-called T-shirt fair, and you may find a few of those too). Valet bike parking by SF Bicycle Coalition. In fair cafe by local collectives. Kid and family space.
Speakers this year include Randall Amster, Robert J. Benedetti, Yantra Bertelli, Terry Bisson, Ward Churchill, John Curl, John Duda, Matt Hern, Luis A. Fernandez, Peter Gelderloos, Andrej Grubacic, Owen Hill, Lierre Keith, Magpie Killjoy, Ernesto Longa, Caslos Martinez, Jason Mcquinn, Keith McHenry, Tommi Avicolli Mecca, Jessica Mills, Tomas Moniz, Vikki Law, Patrick Reinsborough, Kim Stanley Robinson, Penelope Rosemont, DericShannon, Jennifer Silverman, Jeremy Adam Smith, Sarah Talbot, Laura Whitehorn, Kristian Williams and Ward Churchill.So nice, he's appearing twice! Not one other name rings a bell, though I do rather like "Magpie Killjoy" and "Tommi Avicolli Mecca." Let me know if any names are familiar.
Oldtimers may remember that Zombie was at Wart's last (I think) appearance at the fair in 2005, which featured the historic first appearance (again, I think) of Inflated Scrotum Guy. Somehow I doubt there'll be such a buzz this time around.
