If you love all things Berkeley City Club, we have some exciting news to share.
BCC Member, Dr. Sarah Gill, has written a book about our history and it features beautiful images by Club photographer, Trevor Johnson.
The book is over 200 pages beginning with the early women’s movement and planned construction of the building, to the architecture and spaces and then sharing about the Club through its decades of existence in Berkeley. A bright future awaits the Club for many years to come and this is a truly special book to savor our treasured past.
Copies are available for purchase at the Club’s Front Desk for $45/each, with payment available via cash or check. The author has generously chosen to split the royalties of the book, with $10 from each going to the Berkeley City Club Conservancy to aid in the preservation of our building.
Consider purchasing one for yourself or give one as a gift this upcoming holiday season.
Feel free to contact our Team to purchase at 510.848.7800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did you know that the Berkeley City Club partners with a non-profit organization called the Berkeley City Club Conservancy, who are dedicated to preserving our historic building and protecting the legacy of Julia Morgan, our talented architect?
Established in 1965, this group works tirelessly to help raise funds and ensure that our spaces are protected for many years to come.
In the coming months, keep posted for details on a lecture series they are doing to engage and inspire others on the topics of architecture, design and historic revitalization.
If you would like a further peek into our building, join us for a 4th Sunday of the month tour to delve into our history a bit more. At $10/person, your money goes to the preservation of our stunning landmark.
Tours run 45 minutes and take place at approximate intervals of 1:15pm, 2pm and 2:45pm.
