It was Standing Room Only tonight at The Booksmith on 1644 Haight Street near Cole because famous blogger Christian Lander came to town to promote Stuff White People Like: A Definitive Guide to the Unique Taste of Millions. The book started from a similarly-named blog:
“While the name has earned it controversy, the blog is not necessarily about the interests of all white people, but rather a subset of the larger population that can be variously described as affluent, well-educated (particularly in the liberal arts), left-wing (e.g. environmentally conscious, anti-corporate), and/or hipster. His book has made several bestseller lists. Lander was reportedly paid a $300,000 advance by the publisher, Random House, for the book rights.”
