Arts + Culture
Get a sneak peak of seven indie gems screening in San Francisco over the weekend and into the week.
There are 1,440 minutes in a day, and several times that many clips in The Clock, Christian Marclay's epic, 24-hour-long video collage of film segments that each in some way reference an exact time of day, drawn out to align with real time.
Each week, we offer a roundup of the best literary events in the city. All events are free and open to the public, unless otherwise noted. Want to submit an upcoming event for consideration? Go here.
Lucy Knisley (Relish: My Life in the Kitchen)
Saturday, April 13, 5 pm, at Books Inc. Berkeley (1760 4th St.)
Monday, April 15, 6-7 pm, at Omnivore Books (3885a Cesar Chavez St.)
Comics artist Knisley (French Milk) has developed a cult following on the Web for her insightful examinations of twentysomething life and the process of growing up. Knisley also loves food, and she comes from a family with a culinary pedigree: her mother was a chef and her father a gourmet before either was hip, and she grew up in Manhattan restaurant kitchens before a move to upstate New York. In her new graphic memoir, she examines how food has affected her at all stages of her life, from fancy organic fare to ramen and McDonald's fries.
Dear Parking Guru,
Thank you for being such a great source of information. I have a question for you. My girlfriend works in the Marina two days a week and drives a scooter. She has gotten two tickets in two days for parking over the time limit in a two-hour residential zone in one of those spots between driveways that aren't big enough for a car to fit in.
