Department of Shameless Self-Promotion: Go See Gary Kamiya Tonight

Scott Lucas | April 24, 2014 | Lifestyle Story City Life

Like what you read in Gary Kamiya's essay this morning about the ever-changing face of San Francisco? Go give him a high five. (Or if you disagreed with him, you can tell him that too. We guess.)

Kamiya, the author of local bestseller Cool Gray City of Love, appears tonight in conversation with co-editor of Mother Jones Clara Jeffery in conversation at the Hattery in SoMa.

He'll be talking about his book—a flanuer's (Gary taught us that word) love-letter to San Francisco's messy, beautiful glory. They'll also tackle topics that range from gentrification in the Mission to what longtime San Franciscans can learn from the recent transplants.

It isn't too late to get tickets. Go do it.

And if you see Gary before we do, tell him he left his jacket in the office.
