This is a great event and even more relevant now that the Real Goods’ SolFest is no longer happening. The San Francisco Concourse Exhibition Center is a soulful building with timber posts and beams and a retractable roof, quite different from most convention centers.
Shameless Commerce Dept.: we’ll have a booth and be selling Shelter, Home Work, and Builders of the Pacific Coast at a 25% discount, and the 3 books together for a 40% discount, heh-heh. Stop by and get a preview of Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter, which was printed last week and being bound at the printers this very moment. (The sub-subtitle is Scaling Back in the 21st Century.) We’ll have 2 advance copies on display — it will be in bookstores in February 2012. Lew and my son Evan will be running the booth and I’ll be there about half the time.
