bookBad news for book lovers. Peter Howard, owner of Serendipity Books on University Avenue passed away on March 31. His death came just seven and a half months after that of his wife.

Howard was a graduate student and teacher here at UC Berkeley when he sold a set of works by D.H. Lawrence. He quit school once he realized that placing books with good owners was much more satisfying.

Howard was renowned for his extensive rare book collection. Serendipity is so loaded with books that it looks almost like a bibliophile’s bomb shelter.

Although there will be changes at Serendipity, it will stay open. And Howard’s legacy will stay with it.
