Every year an open panel called the Northern California Book Reviewers selects the best work by NorCal authors, published over the previous year, in the following categories: fiction, general and creative nonfiction, poetry, translation, and children's literature. The winners are announced at this annual ceremony and read short passages from their work; it's worth going just to see them all in the same room (the library is usually packed for this, but if you go early you'll have your choice of seats). Both the NCBR and the Northern California Book Awards are projects of Poetry Flash. These awards represent the efforts of many local writers and organizations, meaning much consideration goes into choosing the winners. This year's recipient of the Fred Cody Lifetime Achievement Award is Adam Hochschild, who will be the featured speaker.

  • Phish at the Bill Graham Auditorium
    Phish is in the midst of a block of sold out shows at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium (October 27-29). The Monday night concert featured a rare first set opener of “Walfredo” with the band members switching instruments for the song. The evening’s highlights included John Fishman and his iconic vacuum cleaner solo and favorites such as Chalk Dust Torture, Slave to the Traffic Light, Axilla, Rift, 2001 Space Odyssey, and Maze. The show also featured Phish’s debut of a, seemingly impromptu, version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to with roaring approval of the, singing along, crowd. With Game 6 being tonight, partying Phish fans will join Giants fans in Civic Center Plaza where there will be a World Series viewing party on a large screen set up by the City.
