CITY LIGHTS FOR BOOK LOVERS

Citylights is a bookstore in San Francisco that became famous in the 60's due to the arrest of one of its founders, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, for launching and publishing the book Howl and Others Poems by Allen Ginsberg. The poem Howl, who generated all this controversy was considered obscene for making references to drugs and homosexuality. The bookstore that remains an independent publisher is known for its left-centered progressive politics books and publications on San Francisco culture. It is a must to see for those who enjoy books, culture and want to know more about the history of the city.⠀
