Robin Sloan, author of Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, will be joined on stage by Mercury News columnist Mike Cassidy – a man experienced in the art of the interview.
Many more events are scheduled throughout February and March. Many of the events are perfect for the youngsters in your life and go well with these selected companion books for children:
All of the authors above will be at various libraries around town. Please check our events calendar for upcoming events. Each year Silicon Valley Reads encourages everyone in Santa Clara County to read and discuss the same book during the months of February and March. Take advantage of this opportunity. Be part of the community discussion. Make Sunday dinner an "all ages can participate" forum for fun. It’s bound to be lively and can include the whole family with the age appropriate selections.
When you have finished reading the featured books for Silicon Valley Reads 2014 you might want to try these books! Also, just for fun, why not try an ebook? Happy reading everyone!
