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.
