Nomadic Press will serve fierceness during the Oakland Book Festival at the outdoor amphitheater on the steps of Oakland’s City Hall. Over 105 Bay Area writers each reading three minutes of material alongside seven Bay Area musicians in a lightning-fast, seven-hour marathon reading.

Frank Ogawa Plaza will be inundated with a cross section of some of Oakland’s finest word and musical artists, and the amazing Oakland Future Trio will be there throughout to keep the crowd moving. Words, tunes, local food and drink, phenomenal panels, and stacks of books for sale? Sounds like a wicked-good Sunday. Church!
