Fall/Winter 2018 Updates

What a moment for Heyday: On the eve of 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 forthcoming State of Water and State of Fire, 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 social justice series for younger readers that builds on Fred Korematsu’s story with a second title, Biddy Mason Speaks Up by Arisa White and Laura Atkins.

We still need you. Book sales alone do not cover Heyday’s most ambitious projects. Your support does.

Please consider supporting us as we cut through the noise of the culture and gain attention for deserving work. A gift to Heyday this holiday season 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 for renewing your commitment to independent publishing and for helping to shape Heyday’s next half century.

Thank You!
