San Francisco’s left literary treasure needs your help. Modern Times has always been one of the most progressive independent bookstores in North America, but for the past several years it has been operating at a loss, and is now facing a severe financial crisis that threatens our very existence. We need your support to get through the end of 2013 – and to expand our commitment to creating an inclusive community space into 2014.
The store must raise $100,000 by the end of January to survive. It’s just started but it’s definitely on our way. As of December 13, it has raised 9% of its goal – nearly $9,000 in contributions and pledges. So, that’s success. But it still has a long way to go. The store needs you!
This benefit is being put on by Bay Area musicians who support Modern Times. We are happy to be helping the store “with a song in our hearts.” Come enjoy the music and know that you’re helping to keep a radical bookstore open, one with a long legacy of helping our communities.
Please give as much as you can. The more we raise, the better for Modern Times.
