Remember that book all about the coolness of Oakland we told you about in December? Well, you guys came through and helped raise enough money to successfully fulfill the This Is Oakland kickstarter campaign, and now the author tells us the book is off to the presses. If you donated an amount that got you a book, look for it in May! [Racked Inbox]
