San Francisco Chronicle columnist Heather Knight and pop culture critic Peter Hartlaub founded TotalSF to highlight the wonder and whimsy of San Francisco and to remember why the city is worth fighting for. They launched the program with #TotalMuni2018 when they rode every Muni line in one day and have continued their shenanigans by crafting a new 49 Mile Scenic Route that promotes walking and bicycling, hosting San Francisco movie nights at the Balboa Theater and interviewing San Francisco characters on their TotalSF podcast.
For this very special event, Knight and Hartlaub will be joined by author Gary Kamiya and author and artist Paul Madonna who will share their new collaboration, Spirits of San Francisco, Voyages Through the Unknown City. Marrying image and text in a way no book about our city has done before, Kamiya’s captivating narratives accompany Madonna’s masterful pen-and-ink drawings, breathing life into San Francisco sites both iconic and obscure. Together, they will discuss their love of SF and its endless capacity to amaze.
