Larkspur - The Reading Together Book Groups discuss "Seven Stories Up" and "Time Fetch"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Sunday, August 3 at 2pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Groups on Sunday, August 3rd at 2pm and 4pm.

The first group, for kids ages 8-10, is reading Seven Stories Up by Laurel Snyder and will meet at 2pm. In 1987, Annie’s grandmother lies on her deathbed at the Hotel Calvert. Annie and her mother have come to visit, though Annie’s never met her grandmother. After her first night in the hotel, Annie suddenly wakes up fifty years earlier, in 1937, in the bedroom of a suspiciously familiar girl named Molly. Annie’s unsure of what happened, but when she discovers Molly has never been outside the hotel, it’s time for an adventure and an unlikely friendship that will change their family forever.

The second group, for kids ages 10-12, is reading Time Fetch by Amy Herrick and will meet at 4pm. When a harmless-enough-looking rock turns out to be a sleeping Time Fetch, eighth-grade loner Edward has no idea what he’s unleashed. Awakened too early, The Time Fetch begins to gobble up time, and soon all those who’ve touched the Fetch must come together to stop it from unraveling the entire fabric of the universe.

Reading Together is a special kind of book group designed to bring together kids and parents through, you guessed it, books! Once a month, we'll get together and discuss a book that you have each read.

Note to the kids: Your parents can read some boring stuff! Help them out with something good.

Note to the parents: This is a guilt-free way to read some fantastic, accessible, funny/action-packed/moving literature and share in your kids' reading adventures!

DIESEL, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes Michael Grant to the store for our first MeetYA@DIESEL on Thursday, August 14th at 7pm.

Do you like horror, thrillers and dessert? Then come to DIESEL and meet teen fiction author Michael Grant. Mingle with other fans and talk with Michael about his Gone Series and his not yet published book Messenger of Fear. Then at the end of the evening, we'll raffle off two advanced copies of the upcoming book, which will be released September 23rd. Oh yes, and dessert will be served. Sign up in store for our meetYA@DIESEL group for teens who read. Gone imagines a world where, in the blink of an eye, the adults vanish. No one over fifteen is left. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Gone, too, are the phones, internet, and television. There is no way to get help. Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents--unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers--that grow stronger by the day. It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen and war is imminent.
