PAPERBACK DREAMS
film screening and discussion with filmmaker Alex Beckstead
Monday, December 1 at 7:30 pm


Are independent bookstores still relevant in the 21st century? If you've ever wondered about this question, we invite you to join us for a screening and discussion of a powerful new documentary "Paperback Dreams." The film is the story of two landmark independent bookstores - Kepler's and Cody's - going back to the days of the paperback revolution. The film traces the bookstores' history as cultural institutions and explores their community relationships. It also includes interviews with several well known authors, publishers, and booksellers, including Salman Rushdie and Michael Powell.

"Paperback Dreams" is a co-production of Alex Beckstead, the Independent Television Service (ITVS), and KQED Public Television. Alex lives in San Francisco and is a Booksmith fan. His films have screened at the Sundance Film Festival and Public Television Stations across the US. Alex will join us for Q&A after the film screening.

This Booksmith sponsored event will take place at The Booksmith (1644 Haight Street in San Francisco). For further information, call 415-863-8688 or visit http://www.booksmith.com
