Gary Kamiya – Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco – 6:30-8:00pm
Author Gary Kamiya will discuss his book and his work as a historical columnist (“Portals of the Past”) for the San Francisco Chronicle. Copies of his book will be available for sale and signing courtesy of A Great Good Place for Books.

“It can be stipulated with confidence that Gary Kamiya is not the first person to fall in love with San Francisco. But richly qualified by recent careers as a Yale dropout, cabdriver, journalist and one of the founders of the online magazine Salon, and surely also by a questing nature, he has written in Cool Gray City of Love a rhapsody to San Francisco of unique value. He set out to explore systematically both the familiar and the secret corners of the city, using two wheels or two feet, and also to see and hear through senses augmented by history and literature.” San Francisco Chronicle
