A words-and-music celebration of the independent bookseller coalition in the historic Latino Cultural District—Adobe Books, Alley Cat Books, Dog Eared Books, and Modern Times Bookstore—with a mission to preserve and serve the longstanding community and creative interests of the neighborhood.
With David Talbot, Alejandro Murguía, Kate Schatz, Miriam Klein Stahl, and more.
$5-10 sliding scale
A bookstore is nothing without its authors, poets, musicians, and activists who make these culturally diverse and now historic bookstores hum. Benefiting Litquake and the United Booksellers, who welcome new member Dog Eared Castro and honor the restructured Modern Times on its 45th anniversary, these bookstores proudly continue to hold space, despite the odds. Hosted by Denise Sullivan, Kate Rosenberger, and Josephine Torio
Music by Preston Swirnoff and special guests.
