Quirky Berkeley at Book Passage

Tom Dalzell, Berkeley’s premier “arbiter of the eccentric” (New York Times), will discuss the city’s unique and vibrant public art scene and sign copies of his book, Quirky Berkeley, at Book Passage in San Francisco’s Ferry Building.

Tom Dalzell has lived in Berkeley since 1984. He has worked as a lawyer for the labor movement for his entire adult life. He has written extensively about slang. He has been methodically walking the streets of Berkeley since late 2012 in search of quirky stuff, blogging about it since 2013. The New York Times described him as looking “too strait-laced to be the arbiter of the eccentric.” He accepts this verdict.
