Galen Hefferman and Mia Kaneen

An afternoon of music, tea, and love poems to the Earth
Among the books and in the Garden at UPB/Berkeley

Songs gathered from visions and dreams in the pursuit of a life in right relationship. Galen Hefferman will be joining us from Portland while on a tour of the West Coast. His poetic lyrics, heart-wrenching voice, and beautiful instrumentation guide the listeners through the timelessness of song and beauty.

Mia Kaneen will also share melodies of her own creation that speak with honesty and the voices of her ancestors to share some of the messages of our times.

Please sit beside us, get cozy, and let your ears drink in heart-filling melody.

What they undertook to do
They brought to pass;
All things hang like a drop of dew
Upon a blade of grass.
W. B. Yeats

Allison Shiozaki, host

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.

For more than 40 years, UPB operated out of our address at 2430 Bancroft Way in Berkeley (at present still our mailing address). We're now operating on line and when possible at various pop up locations. Sign up to our mailing list for word on dates and locations of these.,/p>

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