I'll be reading at Diesel's bookstore in Oakland on Sunday, November 8th at 2 p.m. I know it's a long way off. But I've started to look for hotels nearby. And to fantasize about meeting in person some of our Red Room pen pals.
I was going to stay with my aunt in the Berkeley hills. But she passed away suddenly, to my family's great dismay.
And now I'm rethinking the lodging. Does anyone have suggestions about good places to stay near the venue?
One suggestion was the Hotel Durant in Berkeley which looks nice and affordable. I'd love to hear other ideas. And if you live on the West Coast and might be near, please pencil me in your datebook. Of course I'll remind you!
Drinks after the reading?
