A very literary New Year, it is. For those of you who like to download a complete list of our events, here's the January schedule, ready for all those new 2012 calendars!




Read author Laura Lippman's post about a short visit to The Booksmith, and the thoughts about books, bookstores, online shopping, ereaders, and more, right here







Missed meeting Justin BUA and DJ QBert on November 11 in the hoppin' store? Check out a bit of video from the evening! 



Missed the wonderful launch party for, and reading of, Peter Orner's terrific new novel, Love and Shame and Love? Litseen's Evan Karp captured some footage for your viewing pleasure. Just click here!


  So happy to share a few photos from today's Ozzy Osbourne signing!  Wonderful to have him at The Booksmith...and to have all of you here, too. Thank you!  Long live Ozzy!

And it looks like we forgot to post the October list...which we'll make up for by adding it here!



If you weren't able to be with us on October 9 for our Great Night-inspired festivities in Buena Vista Park, check out photos and video -- and Evan Karp's video -- of the lovely, and crazy, afternoon with Chris Adrian, Andrew Sean Greer, Daniel Handler, fairies, picnics, music, and tons of celebrators.

Big thanks to our partners Litquake, SF Parks and Rec, the Buena Vista Neighborhood Association, and San Francisco Parks Alliance!



For those of you who prefer a month's worth of great author events in one place, here's the file to download!




Booksmith loves NaNoWriMo -- we've hosted a number of events in the store devoted to writers writing all types of books and can't wait to do so again -- so it brings a special smile to us reading that Erin Morgenstern's splendid The Night Circus began life under that umbrella. NaNo folks, you especially do not want to miss Erin's first reading and talk on tour -- combined with a Night Circus-themed Booksmith Bookswap, no less! -- on September 16. Check it out via our front page.
