Eastwind Books of Berkeley is located just a short walk from the Downtown Berkeley BART Station. Established in 1982, Eastwind offers a specialized selection of books in Asian and Asian-American literature and poetry, history, culture, martial arts, cookbooks, unique art supplies, textbooks for members of the community and for Cal students too. Many books for sale are bilingual so learning new languages is possible thanks to this unique, small (yet diverse) independent bookstore.
Friendly knowledgeable service is available here with a smile. Eastwind promotes and supports local authors at numerous book events. Their extensive website is a fine example of what’s happening in the Bay Area.
