Phoenix Books In San Francisco Turns 25


It’s something of a major milestone to keep an independent, used bookstore running for twenty-five years.

And that’s exactly what Phoenix Books in San Francisco is celebrating this month.

So as an Anniversary celebration and as  part of Noe Valley Celebrates the Book, Phoenix is hosting some incredible authors this evening from six to eight p.m. at their lovely new storefront on 24th Street, between Noe and Sanchez:

Allison Hoover Bartlett, author of The Man Who Loved Books Too Much

Tony DuShane, author of Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk

Clare Willis, author of Once Bitten

Lisa Gluskin Stonestreet, author of Tulips, Water, Ash

PLUS Solo guitar music by Ted Savarese of Octomutt

There will be treats, libations, and general merriment! Come visit the new and expanded location, have a drink, and check out the backyard patio too.  This is a crucial time to celebrate the independent bookstore and to contribute to its continual livelihood and perseverance.  And I can’t think of a better place to celebrate than at Phoenix Books.
