The Book Fair will be held afternoons at the Craneway Pavillion.* The Pavillion, built by Albert Kahn in 1931, was originally the Ford Company assembly plant and now resides on the National Register of Historical Places. Set on 25 waterfront acres, it boasts views of both the bay and the San Francisco skyline. Register early, space is limited.
