Our 45th Year

What a moment for Heyday: In our 45th year as one of California’s most distinguished independent publishers, we are replanting our roots in Berkeley at a new headquarters on San Pablo Avenue, while expanding our reach in a partnership for national (and even international) distribution with Publishers Group West/Ingram.

Our distribution deal means that books like Obi Kaufmann’s State of Water, following the continued success of his California Field Atlas, and Greg Sarris’s How a Mountain Was Made, inspired by origin stories from the Coast Miwok Indians, will get into the hands of more readers no matter where they live. Heyday is in a unique position to connect readers everywhere to our home state. In the coming year, we also aim to double down on our Fighting for Justice series for younger readers by publishing a third volume: Alice Piper Speaks Up.

We still need you. Book sales alone do not cover Heyday’s most ambitious projects. Your support does. Your gift will allow us to publish books of the highest quality, bringing new and ever more diverse authors into the Heyday family, and continuing conversations about the issues that define and beset our beautiful state.

Thank You!

Our donors help Heyday thrive as a nonprofit. For other ways to connect, please visit our Get Involved page.
