Books Inc. in the Castro in association with the SF LGBT Center is pleased to announce our next Book Group selection: The Night Watch by Sarah Waters
Moving back through the 1940s, through air raids, blacked-out streets, illicit partying, and sexual adventure, to end with its beginning in 1941, "The Night Watch" tells the story of four Londoners-three women and a young man with a past-whose lives, and those of their friends and lovers, connect in tragedy, stunning surprise and exquisite turns, only to change irreversibly in the shadow of a grand historical event.
About Sarah Waters:
Sarah Waters is the author of "Tipping the Velvet," a "New York Times" Notable Book, "Affinity," which won her the "Sunday Times" Young Writer of the Year award, and "Fingersmith," which was shortlisted for both the Orange Prize and the Man Booker Prize in 2002. Waters was named one of "Granta"'s best British writers under forty in 2003.

Books Inc. is a locally owned and operated independent bookseller with 10 locations in California. Books Inc.’s origin dates back to the Gold Rush Days of 1851 when Anton Roman struck it rich in Shasta City, California and set himself up in business selling books. That small bookstore was moved, bought, sold, burned, rebuilt, renamed and became Books Inc., as we know it today, in 1946.
Today, with 10 Stores and 200 employees, Books Inc. serves as a shining example that independent bookselling can survive and prosper, even if we must dance among the elephants.
This Event is Free at the Three Dollar Bill Café within the SF LGBT Center
