A group of concerned citizens are protesting the use of RFID tags (which they call "spy chips") at an authors gala today says Inside Bay Area.
Berkeleyans Organizing for Library Defense will gather in front of the library on Kittredge Street at 6 p.m. as people arrive at the $250-a-plate event, where more than two dozen Bay Area authors are expected, including Mark Danner, Judy Rodgers, Peter Coyote, Mary Roach and Deborah Santana.
The sold-out event, which this year includes dim sum, sushi and high-end vodka martinis, draws an elite crowd and raises thousands of dollars every year for the library.
