Volunteer for the Oakland Book Festival

We are looking for some literary-minded folks to join us on Sunday, May 21, 2017, for the third annual Oakland Book Festival. The Oakland Book Festival will be held at Oakland City Hall and on the adjacent Frank Ogawa Plaza. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact hilaryflood@oaklandbookfestival.org.

We need volunteers to:

  • Distribute programs at the entrance to City Hall
  • Shepherd authors from the green rooms to their panels
  • Assist at author signing tables
  • Monitor the author panels
  • Flex their muscles while setting up and breaking down booths
  • Assist the artists from MOCHA and Fairyland in the children’s area

Come lend a hand, put on an OBF t-shirt, and make Oakland’s third Book Festival an event to remember! Contact us to learn more.
