Readings at the Bookstore

City Lights regularly hosts events with authors from across the publishing world. Since we can't accommodate a lot of folks in the bookstore, we've launched the City Lights LIVE! Virtual Events Series.  Click on the listings below to learn more, and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for regular updates.  Our 2021 calendar will be posted soon.
