Book Buzz Events Announced

California Center for the Book is working with an awesome group of librarians to promote three Book Buzz events coming up soon. If you live or work near North Orange County, East Bay, or Sacramento, please join us for a fun meet up the weekend of September 29 – October 1, 2017.  Connect with local librarians and friends, pick up a free book from one of the authors appearing at CLA Conference in November, enter the raffle, game plan for must-see conference sessions, talk about what you’re reading (or not), and enjoy some casual conversation and camaraderie. Food and beverages are available for purchase. The events are free!  Please check each event for important details and be sure to invite your friends and spread the word.
