Chronicle Books is a child of the Summer of Love, born in a time of radical politics and art. The Bay Area publisher has stayed independent since 1967, while carving out a niche for printing colorful and whimsical books ranging from "The Beatles Anthology" to "How to Speak Wookie" to "Tartine Bread." Chronicle Books is celebrating its 50th anniversary with an exhibit at San Francisco Center for the Book, a reading day at San Francisco library branches, and, of course, a book. We’re joined by CEO Nion McEvoy.
