GIGANTIC THANKS to everyone who came to our open-house last weekend! It was wonderful to see so many, many people who wanted to celebrate this special day with us. Sure, we were tired by the end of the day, but we were also invigorated by your company. And it’s not over yet!!
We continue the celebration for the rest of the year, with a City Lights at 60 events series centering around our mission, our history, and our future. The City Lights Foundation will also sponsor a summer series of events Sundays in Kerouac Alley, hosted by a rotating roster of local, literary luminaries. Check here for the schedule of our special events.
Co-owners of City Lights, Nancy Peters & Lawrence Ferlinghetti greeted guests in the publishing office. Lawrence co-founded City Lights, and Nancy was our publisher and executive director for 27 years.
