The document was edited by Jennifer Bennett, of San Leandro, for a second consecutive year, with the help of associate editors Janet Burns, of Oakland, and Christopher Blood, of Alameda, and design support from Dabney Lyons, of Brentwood, all second-year master’s students in English.

The book will be available for sale at a discounted price. Normally, it is sold for $8 at the University bookstore. It is also available at the University Library.
