Berkeley Walks Trivia Contest at University Press bookstore

  • University Press bookstore 2430 Bancroft Way Berkeley, CA, 94704 United States (map)

Longtime Bay Area walking tour guides Robert E. Johnson and Janet L. Byron share their belovoed bestselling guide, Berkeley Walks: Expanded and Updated Edition. Come prepared with your Berkeley knowledge! An all new "Berkeley Walks Trivia Quiz" with slides will follow Robert and Janet's presentation. Attendees will also have time to ask questions to the authors and purchase signed copies.

Bob Johnson and Janet Byron—long-time city residents and tour guides—have added three new walks, extensively revised six others, and updated all the rest. These 21 walks showcase the many elements that make Berkeley's neighborhoods, shopping districts, and academic areas such fun to explore. Visitors will discover a vibrant community within and beyond the University of California campus borders; locals will be surprised and charmed by the treasures in their own backyards. 

Highlights of the book include features on architects such as John Galen Howard, Bernard Maybeck, and Julia Morgan; more than 100 archival and original photos; and detailed maps with hundreds of points of interest on these easy-to-follow, self-guided walking tours.
