A progressive resource for the Bay Area, a neighborhood bookstore for the Mission.
Located in San Francisco’s Mission District, we sell both used and new books. We offer wide-ranging literature on globalization, politics and media, as well as an array of graphic novels, fiction, and criticism. We maintain informed sexuality and gender sections, and feature one of the Bay Area’s most extensive collections of writings on Latina/o history and culture, including a full selection of Spanish language books. And did we mention our children’s books? Modern Times also fosters a vital literary community with an exciting calendar of events, a blog, and community resources.
Join us the weekend of Friday, June 20th, as we celebrate the three-year anniversary of Modern Times’ move to calle 24. Become a Modern Times member and support the store. all Modern Times members receive 20% off all purchases through the whole weekend.
