Oakland - The Diesel Readers discuss "The Circle"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Monday, August 25 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Diesel Readers back to the store to discuss The Circle by Dave Eggers on Monday, August 25th at 7pm.When Mae Holland is hired to work for The Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company headquartered on a sprawling California campus, she rightly feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. As she tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company's modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night; there are famous musicians playing on the lawn; there are athletic activities, clubs, and brunches; there is even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can't believe her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world, even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at The Circle becomes increasingly public.

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!
