City Lights: 50 Years On

City Lights is a flagship local bookshop for a flotilla of self-sufficient booksellers and publishers around the world who are committed to independent thought and who refuse to succumb to a mass-marketed literary canon. We may not like some of the books but, if we care about their right to be read, City Lights is an indie institution whose actions still speak louder than words. The beat goes on.
The Times' Megan Walsh visits the famous City Lights in San Fransisco which was established more than 50 years ago and looks forward to a bright future. The bookstore's website is here.
