IPTC INFO
CaptionI found myself perusing 826’s “San Francisco Literary Map” over moroheiya noodles with yellow curry. More than a map it includes historical timelines and a slightly out-of-date list of bookstores and readings. In it I could see that the Valencia cluster is only the most obvious part of the Mission literary scene. --- --- --- Not far away above a dubious shop selling remaindered paint in an all but unmarked building at 2141 Mission Street is a bell jar for an eclectic collection of booksellers. To enter visitors must be buzzed in and follow a series of unpromising signs taped to the walls in the drab stairwells. My first stop was Libros Latinos a crypt-quiet space filled with books imported from Latin America. Like the other bookstores in the building which also includes Meyer Boswell a shop that specializes in antiquarian law books and Valhalla which features novels in their first printing Libros Latinos mostly sells to collectors and institutions but is also open to anyone who can find it.--- --- --- I proceeded to Bolerium the anchor of the group _________________ Ripley the cat can often be found in the Borders window and has her own flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/86651228@N00/pool/
Headline" Valencia Street around 20th Street is an excellent place for a visitor to begin. A cluster of shops — 826 Valencia; Borderlands a science fiction and fantasy bookstore and connected cafe"
