The Reading Room

Reading - Literary | January 15, 2012 – December 31, 2014 every Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday with exceptions | 11 a.m.-5 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive


The Reading Room celebrates the written word and the central part it plays in our lives. Books from several noted East Bay small presses are shelved side by side with cherished books left by visitors. Drop by to browse and view related artworks. Bring a favorite book to leave in exchange for one from the ever-changing collection. Read visitors’ notes on why they love the book they have contributed. Leave a note for someone else. On selected Fridays, The Reading Room becomes the site of RE@DS, our literary series dedicated to poetry and experimental fiction.

Guided and inspired by arts writer and poet Ramsay Bell Breslin and poet and UC Berkeley Professor of English Lyn Hejinian, BAM/PFA’s literary project invites visitors to look, listen, share, and read in The Reading Room.
