Following the direction outlined in the recent notice from the University, effective immediately the UPEI Bookstore will be closed until further notice, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For anyone requiring resources/materials for their courses for the current semester, there is the option of ebooks/access codes for select courses via our website.
Please visit to shop for these materials. Email delivery will be provided.
Please note, you will only receive your access code once the order is processed, and orders will only be processed periodically, so we ask for your patience with this matter.
Unfortunately at this time, the store is not open, and shipping is unavailable so physical textbooks, clothing and school supplies are not available.
Please contact for any questions.


The Edge Of Home

As both People?s Poet and Governor General?s Award winner, Milton Acorn was the only Islander to achieve significant national recognition for poetry and prevails as the very symbol of poetic expression on PEI.

?Now when I read Milton Acorn?s poems and come across lines like ?I?ve tasted my blood too much / to love what I was born to? or his marvellous jeu d?esprit, ?The Natural History of Elephants? . . . they take on deeper meanings for me, for I know they?re intrinsically his, as much as the gravelly rasp, the cheeks? expressive gouges and the cauldrons of love he has for fellow beings stubbornly battling for freedom and dignity against those who would keep those from them.?
Irving Layton, ?Reminiscence by Irving Layton?

?Acorn is an affirmative voice, a gentleness masked in ferocity, the best of our traditional wisdom expressed in forceful up-to-date diction.?
Fred Cogswell, ?Three Arc-Light Groups?
