1644 Haight St., San Francisco, CA 94117, United States

When new owners took over this beloved independent bookstore in 2007, they added over 100 new events annually, launched a Berkeley-based lecture series, and designed a brighter and more pleasant place for books. A comic book artist (responsible for the wonderful illustrations the circle the store) and a New York Times bestselling author (often manning the register) are among the store’s many accomplished employees.
