UPB welcomes yours book orders. These will ship from a distributor's warehouse. Web store orders only and other restrictions apply. See our home page side bar for specifics.
Our on-line fulfillment team is sheltering in place; none of our shipments come from store stock at this time.
For books we can't provide under current circumstances, visit our Bookshop page. Look at what we recommend, then search for whatever you like.
You can also can purchase eBooks and audio books through us. Distributed by Hummingbird, they include publications from the major publishing houses. Either access the side bar image link or the "EBOOKS/AUDIOBOOKS" menu item to reach our listings.
The UPB store front on Bancroft Way will be closed indefinitely.
No reading groups nor author events will meet. We may provide for remote, web-only gatherings in the future, if enough circumstances line up.
The Events link will reappear in the menu bar, once remote events get underway.
We’re riding eventualities as they unfold. Our sister business, the Musical Offering still provides workweek lunch for take out. Our friends at the Cafe Ohlone have cancelled dates. Check their website for word on their plans.
