News from The United Booksellers of San Francisco
On January 16th: United Booksellers are opening their doors on this last federal holiday and to say hey, buy a book, for yourself or preferably for someone else, and we will gladly offer a portion of our profits to the Stand with Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. That's it: Simple. (The longer version is you may choose to take your book with you. Leave it with us and we will see that it's sent to an inmate in need via one of our local books to prisons programs. Or if you prefer, we may will send it on to the camps at Standing Rock).
On January 22 from 4-6 PM: Join our community and support the writers who are also working behind enemy lines on the front lines of resistance. They are, in no particular order: Tony Robles, Kim Shuck, Tongo Eisen-Martin, Jennifer Joseph, Thea Matthews, and host, Denise Sullivan. Offering the reading in the spirit of keeping the flame of Modern Times Bookstore Collective lit, we come together to bolster ourselves and each other for the year or four ahead. We will do this together or not at all. Believe it.
Every which way!
