Announcing the Uncharted reading list and bookstore

by Kelly Chen

40 speakers. Two days. One big party… But did we mention the books?

At this year’s Uncharted Festival, attendees can also browse a popup bookstore by Bookish.┬áThe independent bookstore in Berkeley owned by Gina Davidson will offer a selection of books by Uncharted speakers, some of which will be signed. Erik Tarloff, the author of All of Our Yesterdays, will also be performing a special reading.

The tiny but stylish bookstore located next to the UC Berkeley campus and frequented by faculty and students has become an integral part of the Cal community. You can read more about its charm in Berkeleyside.
