In our digital age, books remain important tools for fostering discourse and sparking civic imagination. As part of our Public Knowledge programming, join us for a conversation on the continuing value of the printed word and its impact on public culture with two San Francisco luminaries: author Rebecca Solnit and City Lights book buyer Paul Yamazaki, moderated by Barbara and Stephan Vermut Associate Curator of Public Dialogue Deena Chalabi.

Speakers:
Writer, historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit is the author of twenty books on feminism, Western and indigenous history, popular power, social change and insurrection, wandering and walking, and hope and disaster. A product of the California public education system from kindergarten to graduate school, she is a columnist at Harper’s.

Yamazaki is the head book buyer at City Lights Bookstore, the legendary independent bookseller in San Francisco.
