We'll start with SFist Peninsula headquarters in Menlo Park at Kepler's:

The kickoff to their travel series comes from Frances Mayes (warning, there's sound at that link), on Saturday, April 1, 7:30 p.m.

We're also really intrigued by Stevie Smith (more sound, sorry), coming in June (Wednesday June 14, 2006 7:30 p.m.), mostly because my god man, what were you thinking?! Guess we'll have to go there and ask him because we too have been out-of-shape, inexperienced and broke young bureaucrats but our solution came in the form of career counselling and beer.

Taking our tour a little further but still manageably close to home we looked to see what other author events various Books, Inc. locations have coming up:

Tomorrow, Wednesday March 29th you can sneak down to the Stanford Shopping Center location to see Ruth Reichl at 7:30 p.m. The following Wednesday the Mountain View location hosts Karen Armstrong, also at 7:30 p.m.
