Christian Lander Reads “Stuff White People Like” at The Booksmith

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.”

Brother Christian read from six relevant passages, including #82 Hating Corporations and #16 Gifted Children.
