Diablo Magazine Launches the Second Walnut Creek Book

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Diablo magazine announced the release of the second edition of The Walnut Creek Book, one of four city books in an annual series of publications highlighting the cities and towns of the East Bay. The Walnut Creek Book features hot tips, fascinating personalities, and in-depth resources for enjoying the city of Walnut Creek to its fullest.

Whether you’re a first-time visitor or a long-time resident, you’ll discover the treasures that make the city so unique. The new release will have expanded coverage on the exciting entertainment and dining scene, arts, shopping, and recreation—all areas in which Walnut Creek is highly regarded.

A must-have resource, The Walnut Creek Book will be available at local travel information venues, hotels, advertiser locations, the Broadway Plaza Concierge, and the Walnut Creek Chamber of Commerce/Visitors Bureau. It also will be mailed to select homes with Diablo magazine.

“The first release of The Walnut Creek Book was so well received that we have published a second edition,” says Barney Fonzi, Group Publisher of Diablo magazine. “Our readers have commented that the city books are something the refer to frequently and keep on their coffee tables as a useful reference.”

The other three City Books published in 2013 were The Lamorinda Book, The Berkeley/Oakland Book, and The Livermore/Pleasanton Book. Commenting on the The Lamorinda Book, another in the series, Rick Kattenburg, Vice President of the Orinda Chamber of Commerce, states, “There’s great information on each town, with very well composed write-ups. The restaurant reviews are excellent, and the graphics are superb: It’s one of the best books of this kind I've seen.”
