Join the  Friends of University Press Books

Support the 2430 Arts Alliance

Keep books available ON OPEN SHELVES!

The 2430 Arts Alliance sponsors many of our events. It gains its support through the sale of donated books and from contributions from customers and other supporters of UPB.
Such as you!

EVERY DAY CUSTOMERS TELL US THEY ARE SO GLAD WE'RE STILL HERE, but sales don't quite meet expenses.

So we appeal to you to join the Friends of University Press Books with a $50 annual membership, or a $150 membership, or a $1500 membership--we leave the exact amount up to you.

Click the orangish yellow Donate button to contribute via PayPal, mail your check made out to "The 2430 Arts Alliance" to The 2430 Arts Alliance, 2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA 94704. To make other arrangements or get further information, email us via our contact form or call us during business hours at (510) 548-0585 for local calls, (800) 676-8722 otherwise.

The 2430 Arts Alliance will acknowledge your donation and send you our thanks.

Front facade of University Press Books

From 1974, University Press Books has stoked the blaze of well over ten thousand minds on fire, carrying new scholarship published by the great university presses in the English-speaking world.

Since our founding, we've added quality fiction and creative non-fiction to our selection, without drfiting from our mission to showcase top new texts introduced by university presses.

Order from us. Visit us. Let well-wrought words churn and burn within.
