Banned Books at City Lights Bookstore

banned books shelf

City Lights book store in San Francisco maintains a shelf dedicated to banned books. A world without 1984, Naked Lunch or Ulysses? Inconceivable! One of the last remaining independent bookstores, City Lights Bookstore is a gem that still has the air of the Beats and hippies. Read more about the City Lights Bookstore here. The owner, Lawrence Ferlinghetti is a poet and has owned the store for over 60 years!

After I’ve figured out the child proof lock (it was adult proof too – almost ๐Ÿ™‚ ) I took my little Canon snapshot and reached as far as possible to get this shot. I think we were on the fifth floor; right across from the train station. The Meridien is newly remodeled and you can’t hear any noise from the train station at all. It’s a nice place, very clean.
