We will have a selection of EXCLUSIVE, LIMITED EDITION items available ONLY on Saturday - a first-come, first-served opportunity you don't want to miss. Once they're gone...they're gone!

While you're at the store, check out our display of titles set in or about San Francisco for readers of all ages (feel free to suggest any titles we may have missed!). We will also have a sidewalk sale, weather permitting.

Cool Gray City of LoveOur celebration culminates in a special evening with GARY KAMIYA, author of Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco. Kamiya is a lifelong Bay Area resident and co-founder of Salon, and his book is one of our bestsellers.

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. California Bookstore Day honors all that indie bookstores have to offer.

Come celebrate with us!

"In this dazzling novel Jacqueline Winspear writes irresistibly about the First World War, both in the trenches of France and the fields of England. Her characters walk off the page and into our imaginations, as we fight with them, farm with them, cook with them. I devoured this book." - Margot Livesey, author of The Flight of Gemma Hardy
