SF Booklist (Adult) – Alcatraz Island

Spread the word

Alcatraz Island is one of San Francisco’s most notable landmarks. What used to be the most dreaded and severe peniteniary in the United States has undergone a number of developments since it was shut down in 1963. It has been occupied by a Native American group from 1969 to 1971 and has played a central role in San Francisco’s financial and cultural development both cinematically and in print.
