Book Passage has served the Bay Area for more than 30 years, providing the community with an array of author events, writing and language classes, and highly-respected, annual writing conferences: Mystery Writers Conference (in June), Conference for Children’s Writers & Illustrators (in July), and Travel Writers & Photographers Conference (in August). We offer a wide variety of books ranging from children’s literature to travel guides, from top-selling fiction to mystery novels, and we continue to work diligently with community and nonprofit organizations. Book Passage now has two stores, one in Marin County (Corte Madera) and a second in the San Francisco Ferry Building.
