Bookstore & Chocolate Crawl

UPB will be one of the stops during the Berkeley Bookstore and Chocolate Crawl, which starts at Moe's Books at 1PM.

We'll have book available that participants can purchase and donate to the Muwekma Ohlone Indian Tribe.

Did you know that we've sold choclate all along some time now? Three flavors of hearts and a Chipotle Lime Bar, all from the locally operated Oakland Chocolate Company.

And of course, we display and stock a selection of the best new books published by the university presses, not exactly snack food, but certainly rich enough.

Participation is free, but the hosts prefer that you let them know you're coming. Register at their EventBrite page.

Sunday, May 19, 2019 - 1:00pm to 5:00pm

Those Halcyon Days

Even though the store takes a hiatus, it’s easy to imagine that long conversation amongst the great minds continuing around the Great Table, in our fancy, if not in Eternity, though we can agree to disagree about that.

How many can you identify?

Some are pretty obvious, others a little obscure. If educated outside the U.S. you might have an advantage in naming two or three. One makes for a fancy pose, but he’s actually a blockhead.

All have made significant contributions, even when shown demonstrably wrong. Nonetheless, we continue to argue with them because even when we argue with them, more often than not, we find them productively wrong.

We look forward to the time when you too can rejoin the conversation.

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.
