Black Oak Books is back


As reported on Berkeleyside in October, Black Oak Books is set to re-open this week after closing its Shattuck Avenue store six months ago.

The new location is 2618 San Pablo Avenue in a space occupied by Rountree’s nightclub, and the opening is planned for this Thursday at 11:00 am.

The East Bay Express reports on the store’s changing fortunes here.
