Annual Book Arts Jam returns Oct. 15

Festival celebrates all things bookish

In order for all area residents to have important local information on the coronavirus health emergency, Palo Alto Online has lifted its pay meter and is providing unlimited access to its website. We need your support to continue our important work. Please join your neighbors and become a subscribing member today.

The annual Book Arts Jam, presented by the Bay Area Book Artists (BABA), will be held Sunday, Oct. 15, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Palo Alto Elks Lodge, 4249 El Camino Real. Admission is free.

This year's celebration of all things printed and bookish will include hands-on crafting activities, a printing-press demonstration, a member's exhibition gallery, around 30 vendors selling their work and a special focus on wearable art. Clothing and accessories made from books will be on display.

BABA is a Palo Alto-based group that welcomes new members who share a passion for book arts. There are no membership fees, and meetings are held monthly at Greendell School.

For more information, go to BookArtsJam.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
