Join us as we celebrate California Bookstore Day. We can't think of a better way to celebrate than to hold our recurring Local Author Meet and Greet in conjunction with this inaugural event. Not only will readers have a chance to mingle with over 20 local authors at our casual afternoon mixer, starting at 3:00 PM, but also just as with California Record Store Day (the inspiration for California Bookstore Day) there will be plenty of limited edition merchandise available! For more information, check out CBD's website at cabookstoreday.com. Please note the exclusive CBD items are only available in-store.

The first California Bookstore Day will take place on Saturday May 3, 2014. CBD will harness the creative power of authors, publishers, and booksellers in a state-wide celebration of books and indie bookstores that’s part party, part literary happening and part sales event.
For one day, and one day only, limited, unique, word-based items and books will be available in more than 80 stores across CA. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill signed first editions—these are literature-based art projects, unique books, and collector’s items created for this event only. You can’t get them before. You can’t get them after.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Kwei's visit has been rescheduled to Saturday, May 3, as part of our California Bookstore Day festivities. Although Los Angeles Times bestselling author and Howard University Graduate Kwei Quartey did not begin his writing career until after becoming a physician, becoming a writer had always been one of his childhood dreams. Kwei worked as an urgent care physician with Healthcare Partners and later founded the facility’s wound care center. All of this while writing in his spare time. His crime fiction writing earned him the G.O.G. National Book Club’s award of Best Male Author. Murder at Cape Three Points is the third book in the DI Darko Dawson series.
