A few months ago I highlighted fiction set in Oakland. Several readers suggested I do another posting featuring Oakland nonfiction, so here it is! Oakland is home to many talented writers of both fiction and nonfiction. I've listed a sampling of nonfiction titles here. Have a favorite nonfiction Oakland book that you don't see listed here? Add it to the list and share your experience of reading the book.
Attention - Beginning December 1st, Oakland Public Library will no longer mail hold pickup/cancellation notices. In order to receive information about your holds, please make sure we have your current email or phone number. This change is more environmentally friendly and will reduce mailing costs. Thank you for your cooperation.
