The Mission District’s Sunday Streets was four hours of non-motor disruption–a dream for parents with strollers, skateboarders, and anyone who wanted to get out there and enjoy the streets. But now it’s over and it’s time to jump into the week’s activities.
Concerned with the current economic state and looking back at how things were handled during the Great Depression? Modern Times Bookstore’s Indie Press of the Month Party on Tuesday will feature John Bellamy Foster’s The Great Financial Crisis and Put to Work: Relief Programs in the Great Depression by Nancy Rose. Party starts at 7 p.m.
On Wednesday the Municipal Transit Agency will be having their regular meeting at 1 p.m. Given the recent debate over the 2009-2010 fiscal year budget, public comment might be the most interesting part of the meeting. Then on Friday Muni riders can tell their story (in any form) at the Makeout Room from 7:30-9:30 p.m., as a part of Muni Diaries. If you have a funny Muni story to tell or act out, do it over a drink with fellow riders.
The Mission Book Sale and Drive at John O’Connell takes place from Friday, June 12 to Sunday, June 14. Folks can bring old books and purchase brand new ones too. Book worms this one’s for you! Check with Friends of the San Francisco Public Library for the schedule and details.
