Green Apple Books is a San Francisco institution. Richard Savoy opened the store on Clement Street in 1967. In the early 1990s, Kevin Hunsanger moved to The City and got a job selling rare books there. A few years later, he found himself part of the shop's ownership group, a gig that would last more than 20 years.
In Part 1, Kevin talks about his move to San Francisco and his history of working at and owning Green Apple Books.
Kevin was part-owner of Green Apple Books for more than 20 years. This January, he stepped away to pursue his latest dream—opening a San Francisco cultural history museum.
In Part 2, Kevin shares his inspiration for starting a museum from the ground-up. He speaks to what it is about San Francisco he wants museum visitors to experience—namely education, nostalgia, and a sense of community. Visit the museum's website to learn more and to make a donation.
