When: Sat., Dec. 7, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. 2013
Hang out with fellow literary nerds at the fourth annual Alternative Book and Zine Fest, which happens this Saturday at Berkeley City College (2050 Center St.). With more than sixty local writers and artists selling their work, chances are you’ll find something to your liking, whether you’re a comic-book fiend, graffiti-art enthusiast, or a seeker of radical polemics. Don’t miss the performance by the local all-girl literary spoken-word group Sister Spit, hosted by Michelle Tea, and the reading by New York Times bestselling author Steve Almond. Get crafty at workshops on book- and ’zine-making, cartooning, and screen-printing, or do some holiday shopping and find local treasures for your bookworm friends.
