Gary Kamiya 

When: Sun., Aug. 18, 3 p.m. 2013
Price: free
There is something undeniably romantic about the foggy hills of San Francisco. Gary Kamiya, former senior editor and critic for the San Francisco Examiner and a cofounder of Salon.com, captures that feeling in his 49-chapter love letter to the city by the bay, Cool Gray City of Love: 49 Views of San Francisco. The writing is enchantingly poetic, vividly bringing the reader to points that collectively span the city’s history and geography. He takes you to familiar landmarks and serenades you into appreciating them anew. And if you didn’t already have a fondness for the city’s ever-present fog on your cheeks, you will after reading Cool Gray City. If you’d like a signed copy, the sentimental San Franciscan will be at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland) on Sunday to sign and discuss his book.
