The SF Book Scavenger Hunt
The SF Book Scavenger Hunt is an initiative to help readers discover extraordinary books by largely unknown writers. Participants enter the coordinates provided with a Maps application like Google Maps to find the locations and claim the books. For the last ten months we have been hiding books around Los Angeles, from the Marina to Koreatown to Beverly Hills, and our favorite locations are the artist painted utility boxes throughout the city. Now we are excited to announce that we are starting the scavenger hunt in San Francisco, and providing a fun way to explore San Francisco’s disparate neighborhoods, from North Beach and Nob Hill to the Lower Haight and Glen Park!It’s an excellent way to have fun on Sundays while social distancing, and to discover exceptional literary titles ranging from Viennese modernist works to obscure Latin American writers.On September 19th look for Satyajit Ray On Cinema, Robert Walser’s Jakob Von Gunten, Francois Truffaut’s The Films of My Life(Cahiers du Cinema), Jorge Luis Borges’ The Last Interview, Tete-Michel Kpomassie’s An African in Greenland, Stefan Zweig’s Chess Story, Georges Perec’s The Art of Asking Your Boss for a Raise, Hermann Broch’s The Sleepwalkers, Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s Living to Tell the Tale(autobiography), among others!
