Read. Debate. Celebrate.

Children’s area: performances from Children’s Fairyland, “favorite-stories” read by authors and the Oakland Public Library. Free craft and book-making projects all day. Live on the amphitheater: 100 word and musical artists will perform a seven-hour marathon of three-minute lightning-fast readings.

Plus, booksellers, food trucks, and music!
