- Green Apple Books, a singular store, celebrates 50th anniversary
By Brandon Yu - Sunday Sep 3, 2017
If there’s any indication that portents of the death of print are and have always been misguided, it could be easily seen in the history of places like San Francisco’s Green Apple Books. And if there’s any indication that bookstores nevertheless continue teetering at the edge of survival — well, look again at Green Apple. On Wednesday, Sept. 6, Green Apple Books will celebrate its 50th year in operation with an Anniversary Jubilee of live music and reading with special guests at the Great American Music Hall. In 1967, Richard Savoy opened the 750-square-foot storefront on Clement Street as an evening-only bookstore, then just a physical and symbolic fraction of the San Francisco institution it has become.

- Artists putting their stamps on Polk Street’s ‘Passports’
By Sam Whiting - Tuesday Oct 17, 2017
San Francisco artist Lynn Kirby has been going to the Russian Hill Bookstore since it opened 24 years ago. So when she was invited by the San Francisco Arts Commission to design a unique ink stamp for any business on Polk Street, she requested the bookstore. Come by on Sunday, Oct. 22, and Kirby will be at a desk stamping books just like Marian the Librarian in “The Music Man.” Her stamp is a spin on the ex libris bookplates that link a book to its owner. “I like to make work that is related to a place and has a history,” says Kirby, who is one of 16 local artists participating in “Passport,” a one-day scavenger hunt on Middle Polk, between California and Green streets.
