The festival is the only place in Northern California where writers and other book lovers can journey inside the publishing world for an inspiring look at how books are conceptualized, edited, designed and produced. For the second year, festival organizers will bring together some of California's most successful book people to share what they know in a lively series of panels, workshops and special events. The festival takes place Sept. 18-20 in the relaxing atmosphere of the Mendocino Art Center. Writers — and aspiring writers — are invited to reserve a place as soon as possible. Enrollment is limited to 100 and costs $100. Festival-goers may choose from 14 panels and workshops on every aspect of publishing, including book design, editing, publicity and self-publishing. For example, experienced scriptwriters will offer practical advice about how they write for the lucrative market of stage, screen and television. And for those who dream of earning money while sightseeing, the travel writing workshop will discuss how to land assignments, plan itineraries, arrange interviews and communicate effectively in far-off countries. Kevin Starr, author, journalist I and chairman of the communications department at the University of San Francisco, is among those leading a panel on how to locate and I use reference material. The 34 panelists include three well-known ex-Mendocino Coast writers, John Bear. Luke Breit and Sharon Doubiago. Other panelists are Bill Firmegan, author of a critically acclaimed book on South Africa and a regular contributor to The New Yorker, Bernard Kamoroff, publisher of the highly- successful book Small Time Operator, Jack Shoemaker, founder of North Point Press, and Phil Wood of Ten Speed Press. Patricia Holt, book editor of the San Francisco Chronicle, is the keynote speaker, back by popular demand. A gala book fair will take place on the An Center grounds on Sept. 19 and 20.
