Peter Leone’s Show Jumping Clinic

La Playa Books opened its doors October 25, 2016. We are a used and antiquarian bookstore with a sprinkling of new books and gifts. Our family has been in San Diego since 1886 and is active in philanthropy and community events. This engagement with the community was our impetus to create a place of education and activity in our neighborhood. We host author signings and art events; children’s readings and in-store music. Our mission is to keep books and literacy alive in San Diego.
