Berkeley (Zoom): Local Author Showcase

June 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Local Author Showcase at our Annual New Book Celebration

On Saturday, June 18th, the Berkeley Branch of the California Writers Club will honor its members who have published a new title in the past year. This is a proud moment for this century-old writing club, highlighting the diverse literary accomplishments and talents of this notable group. A wide range of literary genres will be featured, including historical fiction, mystery, fantasy, non-fiction, and poetry.

The virtual celebration will take place starting at 1:30pm with the final Club meeting of the year, with the author presentation beginning at 2pm. Each author will present and read from their book, and address one question. The literary event will last approximately 90 minutes and provide readers with an engaging experience, insights and ideas for readers, writers, and those who want to be writers, and and a stack of new books to read this summer!

Digital books and hard copies will be available for purchase online through indiebound.org and bookshop.org. Special bundle packages of CWC titles will also be available at a discounted price.

Event organizer Sandy Bliss, who will be moderating the event, says, “Not only are the books we’ll feature engrossing to read, the authors have a lot to say about how they went about writing, editing, and publicizing their books.” Bliss adds, “It’s sure to be an informative and lively afternoon. We’re thrilled to be part of, and to showcase the vitality of the Bay Area literary scene.”

The Zoom will open at 1:00 p.m. on June 18th.
