Booksmith Bookswap: Science Edition!
The Booksmith
San Francisco, CA
Share this event:

Bring a book.
Eat great food.
Drink free drinks.
Leave with swag.
Meet new friends. Real, and fictional.

It's the last Bookswap of 2013, and we're going out with a Big Bang. Bring a book that stimulates your neurons (science fiction counts!) and be prepared to talk it up, and then part with it. At the end, we'll have a big white elephant swap, and you'll get a chance form a chemical bond with a stray book floating around.


Megan Prelinger is a writer on art and technology, and on local history. Her most recent book is Another Science Fiction: Advertising the Space Race (Blast Books, 2010). She is co-founder of the Prelinger Library, an independent, experimental research library that is a publicly-accessible creative workshop and research space in San Francisco. She is an artist-in-residence at the Exploratorium where she co-created the Observatory Library, an exhibit composed of a book installation and a series of five new historical atlases, all on Bay Area history. She is also a naturalist and leads birding walks for San Francisco Nature Education. Her work has been profiled in Harper's, the New York Times, and Make magazine.
