Brentwood - Poetry Readings with Rex Wilder and Kate Gale
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Wednesday, April 23 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Rex Wilder and Kate Gale to the store for a joint poetry reading on Wednesday, April 23rd at 7pm. Rex Wilder’s second collection introduces the world to a new form: the boomerang, a four-line nouveau haiku, an anti-Tweet that aims for permanence in an evanescent world. These “admirable throwaways” rhyme the first word or syllable with the last and move like a boomerang. Boomerangs in the Living Room catches in its sweep literature’s classic themes: love, death, family, and sex. Rex Wilder is the author of Waking Bodies, and his poems have appeared in publications such as Poetry, The New Republic, Yale Review, and The Times Literary Supplement. He is the Chief Creative Strategist for Advertising for Humanity, a marketing firm specializing in charities and community foundations. He lives in Pacific Palisades, California. Kate Gale’s newest collection is The Goldilocks Zone. Of her poetry, former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins says, “The clipped jumpy rhythm of these poems with their sudden bursts of syntax prove repeatedly that Kate Gale possesses a poetic tone and pace all her own. She is also refreshingly out of step with today's poetry of self-absorption, for she is fascinated less by her ego than by the strange variety of the world around us.” Dr. Kate Gale is managing editor of Red Hen Press, editor of the Los Angeles Review and President of the American Composers Forum, LA. She teaches in the Low Residency MFA program at the University of Nebraska and she serves on the boards of A Room of Her Own Foundation and Poetry Society of America. She is author of five books of poetry, the novel Lake of Fire, and six librettos including Rio de Sangre. Kate lives in Los Angeles with her husband and children.

PAT AND GINA NEELY BOOKSIGNING (Comfort Food From Our Southern Kitchen to Yours)
Eso Won Books, Wednesday, April 23 at 7pm
For Pat and Gina Neely the secret to a truly happy home is a lively mix of food and family. In their new book, the best-selling authors draw on their down-home roots and revisit the classic Southern recipes that have been passed down through generations. We’re drawn into the kitchens of their mothers and grandmothers and back to a time when produce was picked in the backyard garden and catfish was caught on afternoon fishing trips with Grandpa. In their signature style, Pat and Gina have taken the dishes they were raised on and updated them for today’s kitchens.

Inside you’ll find 100 recipes, including Small Batch Strawberry Jam (best when eaten with Easy Buttermilk and Cream Biscuits), Bourbon French Toast, Crunchy Fried Okra, Skillet Corn Bread, Grilled Succotash, Skillet Roasted Chicken, and Brunswick Stew (which combines a little of everything in your fridge).

Pat and Gina believe good food leads to good times and Back Home with the Neelys is sure to bring back fond memories of the tradition, history, and flavors that are present in every family. Come early and enjoy the cuisine discussion.

Brentwood - Diane Leslie's Book Group with Author discusses "Off Course"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Thursday, April 24 at 5pm
Diane Leslie's Book Group with Author meets to discuss Michelle Huneven's novel, Off Course, on Thursday, April 24th at 5pm.

The best part? Michelle Huneven will be joining in the discussion! It is 1981, and Cressida Hartley, a young PhD candidate in economics, has just moved into her parents’ shabby A-frame in the Sierras. She's hoping to find enough solitude to finish her dissertation on art in the marketplace. Despite herself, though, she is soon drawn into the social life of the small mountain community. There’s Jakey Yates, the local lodge owner, big, burly, and attractive. There’s Rick Garsh, a contractor who gives Cress a part-time job and through whom she meets the Morrow brothers, skilled carpenters who are handsome, amusing, and thoroughly married. Increasingly dissatisfied with her dissertation, Cress falls prey to love, adultery, and obsession, and becomes the victim of her own perilous reasoning. For a young, intelligent woman seeking her place in life, love is the great distraction, and impossible love the greatest of all. Michelle Huneven is the author of Blame and a recipient of the Whiting Writers' Award in 2002, a GE Younger Writers Award in Fiction and a James Beard Award. She is presently a restaurant reviewer for LA Weekly. Her first novel, Round Rock, was named a New York Times Notable Book and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year. She lives in Altadena, California.

Please Note: There is a $20 fee for this event and you must purchase your copy of the book from DIESEL.

Sue Ann Jaffarian and Naomi Hirahara Sign in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Saturday, April 26 at 12pm
Sue Ann Jaffarian Naomi Hirahara

As the Berkley Prime Crime imprint celebrates its 20th anniversary, MGSD is delighted to host a pair of Prime Crime local authors at high noon.

With three mystery series under her belt and a career as a paralegal, one might wonder when Sue Ann Jaffarian has downtime. Sue Ann waited until 1995 to undertake a career as a novelist, becoming a dedicated writer, and completing two novels before switching to the genre of mystery. With a background as a paralegal, writing mysteries seemed to fall into place. Ghost of a Gamble is the sixth book in the popular Ghost of Granny Apples Mystery series.

Naomi Hirahara’s first book, Summer of the Big Bachi, was not only a finalist for Barbara Kingsolver’s Bellwether Prize, but was also a nominee for a Macavity mystery award. Not bad for a debut! The former reporter and editor for The Rafu Shimpo wrote four more books in the Mas Arai series. Naomi’s latest book, Murder on Bamboo Lane, is the first book in the Officer Ellie Rush series, and features a 22-year-old LAPD bicycle cop. (See Sarah’s review on our website.)

Brentwood - Publication Party for Oscar Mandel's "Otherwise Fables"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Sunday, April 27 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes professor emeritus Oscar Mandel to the store for the publication party for his new book, Otherwise Fables, on Sunday, April 27th at 3pm.

Otherwise Fables is the first complete collection of Oscar Mandel's fiction, including the Gobble-Up Stories, Chi Po and the Sorcerer, and The History of Sigismund, Prince of Poland. Drawing on the French narrative form of the conte and following in the fabulist traditions of Jean de La Fontaine and Pedro Calderon, Mandel offers surprising insight into the human condition through fables and fanciful tales rooted in philosophy. His amusing tales of animals, princes, and kings combine ethical ambiguity and gorgeous prose to reveal a sly wit and a lifetime of learning.

Oscar Mandel is an acclaimed Belgian-born American author, scholar, and playwright. He is professor emeritus of literature at the California Institute of Technology, having taught there for more than forty years and he is the author of the essay collection, The Book of Elaborations. He lives in Paris and Los Angeles.

MARIA GITIN BOOKSIGNING (THIS BRIGHT LIGHT OF OURS: Stories from the Voting Rights Fight)
Eso Won Books, Tuesday, April 29 at 07am
This Bright Light of Ours offers a tightly focused insider’s view of the community-based activism that was the heart of the civil rights movement. A celebration of grassroots heroes, this book details through first-person accounts the contributions of ordinary people who formed the nonviolent army that won the fight for voting rights.

Combining memoir and oral history, Maria Gitin fills a vital gap in civil rights history by focusing on the neglected Freedom Summer of 1965 when hundreds of college students joined forces with local black leaders to register thousands of new black voters in the rural South. Gitin was an idealistic nineteen-year-old college freshman from a small farming community north of San Francisco who felt called to action when she saw televised images of brutal attacks on peaceful demonstrators during Bloody Sunday, in Selma, Alabama.

Atypical among white civil rights volunteers, Gitin came from a rural low-income family. She raised funds to attend an intensive orientation in Atlanta featuring now-legendary civil rights leaders. Her detailed letters include the first narrative account of this orientation and the only in-depth field report from a teenage Summer Community Organization and Political Education (SCOPE) project participant.

Gitin details the dangerous life of civil rights activists in Wilcox County, Alabama, where she was assigned. She tells of threats and arrests, but also of forming deep friendships and of falling in love. More than four decades later, Gitin returned to Wilcox County to revisit the people and places that she could never forget and to discover their views of the “outside agitators” who had come to their community. Through conversational interviews with more than fifty Wilcox County residents and former civil rights workers, she has created a channel for the voices of these unheralded heroes who formed the backbone of the civil rights movement. Come early and enjoy the discussion.

Brentwood - Jenni Pulos discusses and signs "Grin and Bear It"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Wednesday, April 30 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Jenni Pulos to the store to discuss and sign her book, Grin and Bear It: How to Be Happy No Matter What Reality Throws Your Way, on Wednesday, April 30th at 7pm. Grin and Bear It is part memoir, part “how-not-to” guide to turning disappointment and setbacks into something positive. And Jenni Pulos is no stranger to disappointment. A beloved reality TV star now, she suffered through her fair share of struggles to get there: publicly humiliated, dumped by her spouse on national television, repeatedly told she’d never make it in Hollywood, and encouraged by family with that ever-inspiring question, “When are you getting a real job?” Sure it's not easy to go from victim to victor, but Grin and Bear It aims to show you the way, from the top ten ways to "fail forward" to how to turn negative self-talk into positive self-beliefs. Ultimately, it is possible to be happy, no matter what “reality” has in store for you. Jenni Pulos is co-star and consulting producer of Bravo's "Flipping Out" and co-star and co-executive producer of Bravo's new show "Interior Therapy." More than a television personality, she is an actress, comedian, writer, producer, lyricist, and rapper. Visit her at jennipulos.com.

The lives of these three become inextricably bound in a story that explores suffering, sexuality, emotional voids, success and failure, and, finally, imperfect happiness.

Adam Pelzman has been a software entrepreneur, an attorney, and a private investigator. He studied Russian literature at the University of Pennsylvania and received a law degree from UCLA. He lives in New York City with his son. Troika is his first novel.
