Slow Reading Dinner

When: Tue., April 30, 6-8 p.m. 2013

Dinner and a reading may make seem like an unusual pairing, but at University Press Books (2430 Bancroft Way, Berkeley), they -- combined with freely flowing wine -- will make the perfect match. On Tuesday, Apr. 30, join the bookstore for its ongoing "Slow Reading Dinner" series, with a meal cooked by Musical Offering chef Erick Balvazq. Everyone around the table will be asked to read some words, so bring a paragraph, a poem, a letter, or a short story to share, and then savor it along with your meal. The idea is that words, like food, should be enjoyed slowly and deliberately -- and, in this case, that they are best enjoyed together. 6-8 p.m., $45, $20 for students. 510-548-0585 or
