“20 in 20″—CWC Berkeley Book Launch June 20th

Meet 20 Bay Area Authors with 21 New Books!

Saturday, June 20th, we honor our 20 members who’ve published a new title in 2019 & 2020. A wide range of literary genres will be featured, including thriller, mystery, non-fiction, memoir, media criticism, fantasy, and poetry. 

The virtual celebration will take place at 2 p.m., and will include a variety of insights and ideas for readers and writers alike. Each author will present or read briefly from their book, and answer one question. Join us for an engaging experience and a list of new books to read during shelter-in-place!

Get your digital books and hard copies right HERE on Bookshop.org! Your purchases support emerging authors AND local brick-and-mortar bookstores. Special bundle packages of CWC titles will be available at a discounted price. Many of these titles will make great Father’s Day gifts!

President Kristen Caven, who will be moderating the event, says, “Our club has never published so many books of such high quality in one fiscal year. We’re so excited to be part of, and to showcase the vitality of the Bay Area literary scene.”
