Chris Adrian in a dog suit! Daniel Handler and Andrew Sean Greer with fairy wings! Great Night photos and video!



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!

The Night Circus was a NaNoWriMo Project



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.
