Our Bookstores—United—Will Never Be Defeated

San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguía calls the 24th Street Corridor/Calle 24 “Bookstore Row,” where the coalition of stores—Adobe Books, Alley Cat Books, and Modern Times Bookstore Collective—all deliver unique attributes to a neighborhood already rich in history and culture. Yet given the changes in the Mission and citywide, independent booksellers, authors, and artists remain besieged by displacement. Tonight we celebrate what bookstores bring to our neighborhoods. Hosted by Alejandro Murguía, with Denise Sullivan and Kate Rosenberger. Music by Cambiowashere, Penelope Houston, Christine Shields, and Bob Forrest. Proceeds to benefit United Booksellers and Litquake.
