Planned Parenthood Book Sale

Annual Fundraising Event

Settling in with a good book is one of the simple pleasures of life; browsing for the perfect tome is another. Both of these can be achieved by visiting the annual Planned Parenthood Book Sale. It’s a treasure trove of the written word — from contemporary works to out-of-print editions on every subject imaginable. There are literally thousands of titles for kids and adults; and all proceeds from the event go to help fund the invaluable works of Planned Parenthood, which provides medical care, education, and advocacy for area families and individuals. The opening-night reception ($25) is Thursday, September 19, 5-9 p.m. The sale runs Friday, September 20-Sunday, September 29. Times vary: Friday (9/20), 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Monday-Friday (9/27), 12-8 p.m. It takes place at Earl Warren Showgrounds, 3400 Calle Real.
