Beatnik Shindig Events at Readers Bookstore

Beatnik Shindig LogoJoin us in our Readers Bookstore at Fort Mason June 26 – 28 as Friends partners with The Beat Museum for their awesome Beatnik Shindig Conference! Our stores will be stocked with the best of the Beats—lots of Beat treasures such as a special edition of City Lights Journal; Number One (1963).

Events will be held in various locations in North Beach and Fort Mason Center, and is the largest Beat Generation Conference to be held in twenty years. This is a great opportunity for Beat fans to gather, network and interact. The Beats blazed the trail on racial equality, gender equality, gay & lesbian rights and environmentalism.  Their themes of travel, exploration, a search for self and a spiritual quest are truly timeless. Come celebrate the Beats with Friends!
