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.
