Family law attorney and writer Katie Burke discusses her engaging and insightful work, Urban Playground: What Kids Say about Living in San Francisco.

Rural areas cover 97 percent of the United States--yet more than 80 percent of the US population lives in urban areas. What is life like for the millions of children who populate our nation's cities?

In Urban Playground, Katie Burke interviews fifty children, ages five to nine, who live in San Francisco. In each conversation, she explores one of ten different themes--family, school, pets, vacation, work, heroes, holidays, favorite foods, talents, and sports--followed by insights on the topic. She rounds out each segment with five questions for adults and kids to discuss after they've read it together, encouraging open, honest dialogue about young readers' thoughts on the subject matter at hand. Future books in the series will expand into other major U.S. cities. Fun, accessible, and interactive, Urban Playground is an important window into the ways children in cities think about and describe the most important aspects of their lives--which is every aspect of their lives!

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 are so excited to begin reintroducing the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores with traditional author talks and booksignings. In addition to meet-and-greet author events and standard author talks, we are also continuting virtual author events.

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.
