Mapped: The Literary Life in San Francisco

on Tuesday, Oct. 29th

With the tech renaissance that’s swept through the SF Bay Area over the last few years, the rich and enduring literary scene here can get short shrift.

Without a doubt, the two are linked — live events like our friends’ PopUp Magazine and the vibrant festival LitQuake are at capacity, full of young, hip people, with each successive event. But the city’s long standing, year-round devotion to its neighborhood bookstores hasn’t wavered, either.

Decades of this layered history are showcased on a new interactive map from the San Francisco Chronicle. I like filtering by author, and the background provided by on the map’s home page by Chronicle book editor John McMurtrie is also a pretty good place to start.
