You’ve probably heard of Quimby’s as the place to buy small-press books, zines, comics, and graphic novels, but it’s also the place to catch their writers. McSweeney’s writers often stop in, as do indie darlings such as Kelly Link, Michelle Tea and the revolving cast of the Perpetual Motion Roadshow. A true neighborhood staple, Quimby's also offers plenty of community-based events, giving up-and-coming authors an opportunity to shine.
