Driven:  Read Here Now (Slideshow)
Running Time:

City Lights is a bookstore in San Francisco, but it's a lot more than that. Founded by poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti in 1953 as the first all-paperback bookstore, it is now a world-renowned literary landmark and a "beacon of what's possible." In this show, we get an inside look at this "kind of library where books are sold" through the eyes of Paul Yamazaki, a bookseller who's worked there since 1970, and who will continue to work there, he says, until he's carried out "boots-up."
