Bestselling mystery writer John Lescroart, an El Macero resident, will be among some 50 authors featured at this fall’s California Capital Book Festival. The event will run Oct. 25-26 at the Sacramento Convention Center.

The book festival is produced by Sacramento-based event planning firm Capital EventWorks in partnership with the Sacramento Public Library Foundation.

Joining Lescroart will be Peter Mehlman, former “Seinfeld” writer and author of the novel “It Won’t Always Be This Great,” scheduled for release in September; Rhys Bowen, New York Times bestselling author of the Molly Murphy and Royal Spyness historical mystery series; cartoonist Leigh Rubin, creator of “Rubes” comic strip; and award-winning historical fiction and romance writer Brenda Novak.

Others are storycard author Hazuki Kataoka; author and animal trainer Rebecca O’Connor; historical fiction writer and journalist Karen Spears Zacharias; Doug Fine, author of “Hemp Bound: Dispatches From The Front Lines Of The Agricultural Revolution”; and outdoor writer James Nestor, author of the newly released “Deep.”

In addition to genre-based author panels, booksellers and publisher exhibits, the California Capital Book Festival will include four special themed venues. The Kids’Alley venue will feature age-appropriate programs and activities for kids of all ages, including storytelling and author readings; interactive School of Comics; Art Blast activities; photos with costumed book characters and more.

The Field of Sports venue will feature remarkable California athletes, many of whom are authors; panel discussions with sports writers and reporters; a History of Sacramento Sports exhibit; and sports memorabilia displays and sales.

All Things Pets is a must-do venue featuring doggie massage lessons, agility and freestyle dog sports demonstrations, alternative and holistic pet health resources, information on reading and therapy dogs, and adoptable pets under the care of local animal shelters and rescue organizations.

The Culinary Delights venue will showcase Sacramento’s farm-to-fork reputation, showcasing the region’s most renowned chefs, wines and cuisine; celebrity chef demonstrations, cookbook signings and more.
