Alta Asks Live Presents: JOHN FREEMAN

Alta Asks Live: John Freeman

Author John Freeman joins Alta editor at large Mary Melton to discuss the new wave of authors who have made his must-read California curriculum, talk about his latest book, Tales of Two Planets, and detail the plans for our new California Book Club.

California has had a hand in shaping just about every cultural moment of the past 20 years—including, and perhaps especially, literature. Author, Literary Hub executive editor, and Alta contributor John Freeman has developed an exciting literary curriculum that reimagines which books define the culture and community of California. Freeman will also help lead Alta’s new California Book Club, featuring a new title and related author event every month. He joins Alta editor at large Mary Melton to discuss the new wave of authors who have made his must-read California curriculum, talk about his latest book, Tales of Two Planets, and detail the plans for our exciting new club. REGISTER

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
