In our digital age, books remain important tools for fostering discourse and sparking civic imagination. Join us for a conversation on the continuing value of the printed word and its impact on public culture with two San Francisco luminaries: author Rebecca Solnit and bookseller for City Lights, Paul Yamazaki.
Rebecca Solnit is a writer, historian, and activist. She is the author of twenty books on feminism, western and indigenous history, popular power, social change and insurrection, wandering and walking, hope and disaster. A product of the California public education system from kindergarten to graduate school, she is a columnist at Harper’s.
Paul Yamazaki is the Head Book Buyer at City Lights Bookstore, the legendary independent bookseller in San Francisco.
This program is part of SFMOMA’s Phyllis Wattis Distinguished Lecture Series.
Free with RSVP. Tickets will be available on November 16th.
