There are a number of options for purchasing textbooks for the Latin Workshop. Textbooks are available at the Cal Student Store, and can, of course, be purchased online at retailers like Amazon or AbeBooks.

 

Texts for the First Half of the Workshop

The following two textbooks are REQUIRED for all students:

Learn to Read Latin by Andrew Keller and Stephanie Russell.  Yale University Press. Second Edition.

Learn to Read Latin: Workbook by A. Keller and S. Russell. Yale University Press. Second Edition.
NB: The workbook is often sold in two parts. You will need both Parts I and II.

 

Students may find the following OPTIONAL reference texts useful:

New College Latin/English Dictionary by John C. Traupman
A basic elementary Latin dictionary.

Elementary Latin Dictionary by C.T. Lewis
This is a much fuller elementary dictionary, but also much more expensive. Students who are interested in investing in a more advanced reference (and this especially applies to students with an interest in Medieval Latin) may wish to purchase this dictionary instead.

New Latin Grammar by J.H. Allen and J.B. Greenough
While students in the workshop will be instructed in the major grammatical structures of classical Latin, it is impossible for any introductory Latin course to cover every rare structure and obscure usage.
Allen and Greenough is an excellent resource for students who expect to read broadly in classical Latin and may need some of the finer points of Latin grammar explained. (Gildersleeve and Lodge's Latin Grammar is another excellent grammatical resource.)

English Grammar for Students of Latin by Norma Goldman and Ladislas Szymanski
A useful reference for students who want to review the basics of grammar.

 

Texts for the Second Half of the Workshop

There are four reading classes offered in the second half of the workshop: two in prose and two in verse. Students will choose one prose course and one poetry course (but there is no separate enrollment with Summer Sessions). Each course has its own required texts. Students only need to purchase the texts required for the two courses that they plan to take. Since most students will not know which second-half courses they will want to take when they first enroll, it's usually a good idea not to purchase textbooks until the fourth week of the program.
