An Evening with Kevin Fisher-Paulson


Kevin Fisher-Paulson - Secrets of the Blue Bungalow

Rakestraw Books proudly welcomes SF Chronicle columnist Kevin Fisher-Paulson to the shop for a celebration of his book Secrets of the Blue Bungalow.

For eight years, thousands of readers across San Francisco and beyond have laughed, cried, and felt inspired by the true, tender, and hilariously honest tales of a gay-parented, mixed-race, super-heroic family growing up together in a Bedlam Blue Bungalow... located somewhere in the Outer, Outer, Outer, Outer Excelsior neighborhood.

Told every Wednesday by SF Chronicle columnist Kevin Fisher-Paulson, 65 of these evocative stories were collected in a 2019 book entitled How We Keep Spinning...! the journey of a family in stories. Four years later, this volume shares 75 more true tales of family life at the very edge of San Francisco, as experienced by Kevin, Brian, Aidan, Zane and their faithful rescue dogs.

Kevin Fisher-Paulson is the author of How We Keep Spinning and A Song for Lost Angels. Fisher-Paulson lives with his husband, Brian, their two sons, and pack of rescue dogs in the mysterious outer, outer, outer, outer Excelsior. When he’s not writing, he serves as commander of the honor guard for the San Francisco Sheriff's Department.

For several weeks now many of you have been asking if we could present an event with Kevin Fisher-Paulson, so we are particularly delighted to announce that he is visiting on Tuesday, 26 September 2023 at 7 PM. Please make your reservations by calling the shop at (925) 837-7337.
