Second Annual Bloggers ❤️ Authors Event

We constantly (not-so-humble) brag about how amazing the Bay Area book world is. The relationship between bookish people, authors, and bookstores is out of this world. It’s thanks to this amazingness that the Bay Area Bloggers <3 Authors Event was born and had a successful second year (see year one here!).

Saturday, March 10th, NYMBC and Books, Inc – Santa Clara hosted 13 authors and bloggers and let us tell you…

Not Your Mother’s Book Club isn’t REALLY a club. It’s the name of Books Inc.’s Young Adult Author Salon. So really, we’re just an inclusive bunch of PASSIONATE readers who get to hang out with the coolest authors on the scene! We throw parties, eat snacks and read, read, read, read, read…
Not Your Mother’s Book Club events go into the Not Your Mother’s Book Club Fund, which Books Inc. turns around and uses to spread the love of reading throughout the Bay Area communities.
