Codys Books

Founded in 1956 with a mere $5,000, Cody's is the ultimate bibliophile's paradise. Surviving censorship threats, the tear-gas riots of the 60s and the onslaught of chain bookstores in the 90s, Cody's remains an essential part of the Berkeley community, offering thousands of fiction and nonfiction titles in two different stores, a monthly poetry series, adult and children's book discussion groups, premium author events, and one of the richest collections of magazines and literary journals available.

In-store author events, book discussion groups, poetry readings and other special events.
