WORKSHOP: Knife Sharpening

HBC Member Event Calendar

We’re working hard to improve our programs and make them both more enjoyable and interesting for our membership. We will no longer be holding the Board Meeting just prior to the program so that our monthly meeting will be devoted to activities both hospitable and interesting for everyone who attends. We also will be holding some programs and meetings on days other than our usual first Tuesday of the month so that many who have not been able to attend in the past can participate. And some of our initial events this year will be held in new venues as we try to make greater use of the resources of the Bay Area book community. Please mark these dates in your calendar and join us!
