The awards ceremony is June 12 at San Francisco’s Commonwealth Club. It is a coup for our region at the same time it is been designated a statewide Cultural District.

“The California Book Awards have often been in the vanguard, honoring previously unknown authors who go on to garner national acclaim,” the Club explained. “Since 1931, the awards have honored the exceptional literary merit of California writers and publishers. Each year, a select jury considers hundreds of books from around the state in search of the very best in literary achievement.” More details here:
