2018 Big Book Sale
October 31- November 4th | 10 am to 6 pm
Fort Mason Center, Festival Pavilion, SF
The multi-day event attracts people from all over the Bay Area and beyond. Mike Pincus, a book enthusiast who comes to the sale every year, donates his home library collection before the sale, and then replenishes his shelves with new books he buys.
It’s because, supporters like Mike that they are able to support the superior San Francisco Public Library and make an exceptional difference.
Categories in the sale include hundreds of cookbooks, graphic novels, literature, children’s books, science fiction, mystery, LPs and more. Hardcovers, paperbacks, 1st editions, classics and best sellers can all be found among the endless sea of stock.
