The California State Fair opens Thursday and run through July 29. For the 15th year, the Golden State's literary side will be on display, offering fairgoers chances to chat about writing and publishing with 37 California writers at the Authors Booth.
Each day throughout the run of the fair, at least a half-dozen authors (representing a variety of genres) will staff the booth. They will be on the first floor of the California Building (Building A).
Among the Sacramento-area authors will be Naida West ("California Gold" trilogy), Brenda Novak ("Bulletproof" trilogy), Martha Dunne ("Wait, What Do You Mean? Asperger's Tell and Show"), Cindy Sample ("Dying for a Dance"), Bud Gardner ("Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul"), Kevin W. Hecteman ("Sacramento's Southern Pacific Shops") and Elaine Macko ("Armed").
For the young ones, Hazuki Kataoka and David Battino will present their "Storycard Theater" storytelling programs of traditional Japanese culture and art.
