Adobe Bookshop Farewell Party


As Rumpus contributor Peter Orner recently said, “Don’t you all see what we are losing? If this city still has a soul, it’s at Adobe.”

San Francisco’s Adobe Bookshop is going out of business, but not without a final hurrah. On Wednesday, January 16th at 7pm, three great San Francisco writers will read in the bookshop, to celebrate Adobe’s long existence and the generosity and kindness of its proprietor, Andrew McKinley. The reading will feature Rebecca Solnit, Michelle Tea, and our very own Stephen Elliott. It should be an amazing and memorable evening. Please come.

The Adobe Bookshop is located at 3166 16th Street, between Guerrero and Valencia, in the Mission. Admission is free, but space is limited, so you might want to get there early.

Caroline Kangas calls both Seattle and San Francisco home (though she currently resides in the latter). She recently received a mouthful of a liberal arts degree from the University of San Francisco and can be found selling pirate supplies at 826 Valencia or wandering the streets with her diva of a french bulldog, Elle.
