Event Details

It’s high time to celebrate the arrival of a gorgeous new photographic contemporary look of our neighborhood and its place in the Bay Area.

There’s no lack of historical books about the Haight-Ashbury, but this is the first to portray the modern Haight…with its rich mix of 60s tie-dyes, 80s Deadheads and 00s murals recalling the past…a neighborhood with history and culture intertwined with the City and with the greater Bay Area that surrounds it.

Dick Evans worked with his long-time photo editor, Yasemin Kant, with the resulting 200+ photographs marvelous in full color. Ben Fong-Torres added a Foreword and section introductions. And local guide and historian Stannous Flouride provided background research.

Join us to cheer all the hard work and to celebrate the ‘hood, and to welcome both Dick Evans and Ben Fong-Torres
