Don't Miss Our Annual
PRE-HOLIDAY SALE This Weekend!
Saturday and Sunday, November 21 & 22
Thank You to all of our customers for your support these past three and a half years. To show our appreciation, we are offering 20% OFF all BOOKS, CARDS and GIFTS in stock this weekend! This is a great chance for you to do some early holiday shopping.
We have some great new titles for food lovers: Ad Hoc, Thomas Keller's new cookbook for home cooking; the new edition of Larousse Gastronomique, and the sumptuous Country Cooking of Ireland from Chronicle Books. For art and nature lovers, we have a new collection from Ansel Adams, including his work in color, some of which has never before been in print. Great fiction choices include The Children's Book, a spellbinding new novel by A.S. Byatt, and the new Booker Prize winner, Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel, a highly appealing historical novel featuring King Henry VIII's go-to man, Thomas Cromwell. For those who prefer nonfiction, Senator Edward Kennedy's memoir, True Compass, is another great gift idea.
Not sure what to get? Our knowledgeable staff is happy to help you find that special something for everyone on your holiday list.
Also this weekend: We will be selling books at a very special event featuring Anne Lamott on Saturday, November 21, at Old First Presbyterian Church (1751 Sacramento Street). Will Write for Food is a benefit for the Food Distribution Program of WELCOME, an organization that provides services for the needy citizens of the Upper Polk area of San Francisco. This reasonably priced benefit includes a reception at 7 p.m., and a conversation with Anne Lamott at 8 p.m. See attached flier for more information.
