BOOKSMITH BOOKSWAP, LITQUAKE Edition, October 2010
The Booksmith Bookswap, LITQUAKE Edition
Thursday, October 7
6:30 9:30 PM
EAT, DRINK, TALK, (SWAP) BOOKS!
Presented in collaboration with other independent bookstores, and with fabulous wordsmith guests Oscar Villalon, Holly Payne, K. M. Soehnlein, and many others.
Join The Booksmith and other favorite independent bookstores for the only LITQUAKE event that celebrates YOU, the Reader. The Bookswap is a truly unique event: participants have the chance to reflect on their most treasured reads and learn about dozens of new, fantastic books; the evening culminates in a rowdy (and always entertaining) swap think cocktail party, with a bookish twist.
Since its inception last year, The Booksmith Bookswap has SOLD OUT every time and has received rave ("the most unique book eventever!"; "a great place to meet smart, creative, like-minded people") reviews from all who participate.
For LITQUAKE, bibliovores from across the city will convene at Martin Macks, a very fun Irish pub in the Haight Ashbury. We'll have: hilarious and interesting book-y conversation starters, amazing writers, wine and beer, and the best pub fare in all of San Francisco. Bring a book -- one you passionately love but can part with -- and we'll provide the rest.
You! This event is for anyone who has ever loved a book and craved the chance to convince more folks to read it. You'll also meet amazing writers, including Oscar Villalon, Holly Payne, and K. M. Soehnlein, and a big group of passionate readers like you.
