Novelist, activist, essayist, playwright, filmmaker, and critic, Susan Sontag was one of the most emblematic writers of the American 20th century, one whose name conjures an immediate image, one so well-known that 15 years after her death, a day rarely goes by without her somehow, somewhere, being mentioned. Ben Moser (Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector) offers the definitive portrait of Sontag, and a single-volume introduction to the American twentieth century, refracted through the life of one of its most extraordinary figures. He is joined by writer, historian and activiist Rebecca Solnit (Hope in the Dark, The Mother of All Things, Men Explain Things to Me).

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
