Marcus Book Stores and Gentrification Display

Come visit Gleeson Library’s book display to learn about the history (and future!) of San Francisco’s iconic Marcus Book Stores. The display contextualizes the Fillmore book store’s fate vis-à-vis the legacy of gentrification and displacement in San Francisco and cities around the world. This exhibit was conceived and created by USF Urban Affairs student, David Woo. Many thanks to David for his excellent work on this display!
