Larkspur-The Reading Together Book Group discusses "The Fourteenth Goldfish"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, October 26 at 2pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Group on Sunday, October 26th at 2pm. This month's selection for kids ages 8-10, is The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm.

Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses fifth grade. She misses her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He’s bossy. He’s cranky. And weirdly enough... he looks a lot like Ellie’s grandfather, a scientist who’s always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this pimply boy really be Grandpa Melvin? Has he finally found the secret to eternal youth? 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!

Oakland- The Seated Diesels discuss "The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Tuesday, October 28 at 7:30pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Seated Diesels back to the store to discuss The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum: Or Where Violence Develops and Where It Can Lead by Heinrich Boll on Tuesday, October 28th at 7:30 pm.

In an era in which journalists will stop at nothing to break a story, Heinrich Boll's, The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum, has taken on heightened relevance. A young woman's association with a hunted man makes her the target of a journalist determined to grab headlines by portraying her as an evil woman. As the attacks on her escalate and she becomes the victim of anonymous threats, Katharina sees only one way out of her nightmare. Turning the mystery genre on its head, the novel begins with the confession of a crime, drawing the reader into a web of sensationalism, character assassination, and the unavoidable eruption of violence.

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

    Merritt Tierce - Love Me Back
    Green Apple Books, Thursday, October 30 at 7pm
    Green Apple Books is proud to present author Merritt Tierce as she celebrates the release of her first novel, Love Me Back. We’ll be celebrating the release at 7pm in the Granny Smith Room of Green Apple Books on Clement. Facebook RSVP requested but not required From "5 Under 35" honoree and Rona Jaffe Award-winner comes an urgent, intensely visceral debut novel about a young waitress whose downward spiral is narrated in electric prose. Pulsing with fierce, almost feral energy, "Love Me Back" is an unapologetic portrait of a woman cutting a precarious path through early adulthood. Marie, a young single mother, lands a job at an upscale Dallas steakhouse. She is preternaturally attuned to the appetites of her patrons, but quickly learns to hide her private struggle behind an easy smile and a crisp white apron. In a world of long hours and late nights, where everything runs on a currency of favors, cash and cachet, Marie gives in to brutally self-destructive impulses. She loses herself in a tangle of bodies and the kind of coke that 'napalms your emotional synapses.' But obliteration--not pleasure--is her goal. Merritt Tierce, a National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 honoree, was born and raised in Texas, and graduated from college at the age of 19. She received her MFA in fiction writing from the Iowa Writers' Workshop, where she was named a Meta Rosenberg Fellow. In 2011, she was a recipient of a Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers' Award. Merritt lives near Dallas with her husband and children.

    Oakland- Mark McClusky discusses and signs "Faster, Higher, Stronger"
    Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Thursday, October 30 at 7pm
    Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Mark McClusky to the store to discuss and sign his new sports book, Faster, Higher, Stronger: How Sports Science is Creating a New Generation of Superathletes-- and What We Can Learn From Them, on Thursday, October 30th at 7pm. The world of high-performance athletics is changing forever. Not so long ago, you could compete at the top level with hard work and a good coach, but today, it's impossible to separate the achievements of athletes from the scientists who support them. In Faster, Higher, Stronger, veteran journalist Mark McClusky brings readers behind the scenes with a new generation of athletes, coaches, and scientists whose accomplishments are changing our understanding of human physical achievement and completely redefining the limits of the human body. At the exciting new frontier of sports, science, and technology, the book explores: - The role that genes and training play - How to find hidden champions and fasttrack greatness - The truth about the 10,000 hours rule - New research on breaking through fatigue - Revolutions in data and nutrition - And how we can apply the lessons about focus, dedication, and sheer ingenuity in our own lives. Brimming with cutting-edge science and gripping anecdotes, Faster, Higher, Stronger is a fascinating, exhilarating look at how far we can push the boundaries of our bodies and minds. Mark McClusky is the editor of Wired.com and founding editor of Wired Playbook. Previously, he was special projects editor at WIRED, an editor and reporter at Sports Illustrated and SI for Kids, and a founding editor of Sports Illustrated's website. A former member of the baseball analytics collective Baseball Prospectus, McClusky contributed to several of its bestselling books, and is a coauthor of Alinea by Grant Achatz. He lives in Oakland, California.

    Oakland- William Gibson discusses and signs "The Peripheral"
    Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Friday, October 31 at 7pm
    Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author William Gibson to the store to discuss and sign his new sci-fi novel, The Peripheral, and celebrate the 30th anniversary edition of, Neuromancer, on Friday, October 31st at 7pm. William Gibson returns with his first novel since 2010's New York Times-bestselling Zero History. Where Flynne and her brother, Burton, live, jobs outside the drug business are rare. Fortunately, Burton has his veteran's benefits, for neural damage he suffered from implants during his time in the USMC's elite Haptic Recon force. Then one night Burton has to go out, but there's a job he's supposed to do--a job Flynne didn't know he had. Beta-testing part of a new game, he tells her. The job seems to be simple: work a perimeter around the image of a tower building. Little buglike things turn up. He's supposed to get in their way, edge them back. That's all there is to it. He's offering Flynne a good price to take over for him. What she sees, though, isn't what Burton told her to expect. It might be a game, but it might also be murder. Join us in a Halloween party celebrating William Gibson's new book, The Peripheral and the 30th anniversary of, Neuromancer. Costumes are optional, but encouraged,and there are sure to be treats! William Gibson's first novel, Neuromancer, won the Hugo Award, the Philip K. Dick Memorial Award, and the Nebula Award in 1984. He is credited with having coined the term "cyberspace," and having envisioned both the Internet and virtual reality before either existed. His other novels include All Tomorrow's Parties, Idoru, Virtual Light, Mona Lisa Overdrive, and Count Zero. He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia with his wife and two children.

    Oakland- Diane di Prima discusses and signs "The Poetry Deal"
    Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, November 2 at 3pm
    Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes poet Diane di Prima to the store to discuss and sign her full-length collection, The Poetry Deal, on Sunday, November 2nd at 3pm. The Poetry Deal is the first full-length collection of individual poems in decades from legendary feminist Beat poet Diane di Prima. Framed by two passionate, and critical, prose statements assessing her adopted home city, The Poetry Deal is a collection of poems that provide a personal and political look at forty years of Bay Area culture. Often elegiac in tone, the book captures the poet's sense of loss as she chronicles the deaths of friends from the AIDS epidemic as well as the passing of illustrious countercultural colleagues like Philip Whalen, Pigpen from the Grateful Dead, and Kirby Doyle. She also recalls and mourns out-of-town inspirations like Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, Audre Lorde, and Ezra Pound. Yet even as she laments the state of her city today, she finds triumph and solace in her own relationships, the marriages of her friends, the endurance of City Lights, and other symbols of San Francisco's heritage. Born in Brooklyn in 1934, Diane di Prima emerged as a member of the Beat Generation in New York in the late '50s. In the early '60s, she founded the important mimeo magazine The Floating Bear with her lover LeRoi Jones (Amiri Baraka). In the late '60s, she moved to San Francisco, where she would publish her groundbreaking Revolutionary Letters with City Lights. Her other important books include Memoirs of a Beatnik, Pieces of a Dream, Recollections of My Life as a Woman, and Loba. She was named San Francisco Poet Laureate in 2009.

    Oakland- Rebecca Solnit discusses and signs "The Encyclopedia of Trouble and Spaciousness"
    Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Tuesday, November 4 at 7pm
    Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Rebecca Solnit to the store to discuss and sign her new collection of essays, The Encyclopedia of Trouble and Spaciousness, on Tuesday, November 4th at 7pm. The incomparable Rebecca Solnit, author of more than a dozen acclaimed books of nonfiction, brings the same dazzling writing to the twenty-nine essays in The Encyclopedia of Trouble and Spaciousness. As the title suggests, the territory of Solnit's concerns is vast, and in her signature alchemical style she combines commentary on history, justice, war and peace, and explorations of place, art, and community, all while writing with the lyricism of a poet to achieve incandescence and wisdom. Gathered here are celebrated iconic essays along with little-known pieces that create a powerful survey of the world we live in. In its encyclopedic reach and its generous compassion, Solnit's collection charts a way through the thickets of our complex social and political worlds. San Francisco writer Rebecca Solnit is the author of fifteen books about art, landscape, public and collective life, ecology, politics, hope, meandering, reverie, and memory. They include the critically acclaimed memoir The Faraway Nearby, Infinite City: A San Francisco Atlas, and River of Shadows: Eadweard Muybridge and the Technological Wild West, for which she received a Guggenheim fellowship, the National Book Critics Circle Award in criticism, and the Lannan Literary Award. Solnit has worked with climate change, Native American land rights, antinuclear, human rights, and antiwar issues as an activist and journalist. She is a contributing editor to Harper's and a frequent contributor to the political site Tomdispatch.com and has made her living as an independent writer since 1988.

    Amarnath Ravva’s American Canyon
    Green Apple Books, Tuesday, November 4 at 7pm
    Please join Green Apple Books in our Granny Smith Room on November 4th at 7:00 p.m. as we welcome Amarnath Ravva, who will be reading from his latest book American Canyon!

    Facebook RSVP requested but not required

    Blending myth with interviews and first-person narrative, California-based writer Amarnath Ravva’s American Canyon uses prose, documentary footage and still photos to recount the fragmented and ever-evolving story of one person’s apprehension of the ghosts of history. Written from a series of video notes taken over a period of ten years, this narrative of a son’s love for his mother and the ritual he performs for her takes us from California to Rameswaram, the southern tip of the Indian peninsula. It is a meditation on the moments in history that placed him in front of a small bright fire, a lament for the continual loss of those who, by remembering, let us know who we are.

    Ravva’s American Canyon has been described by poet and author Kevin Killian as “a complex reworking of memoir form, using the tools of poetry remelted, as in Vulcan’s forge, to slash away at the ghosts and ghouls of conventional prose usage. The new journalism, Ravva-style, stimulates the nerve endings with its alternately lush and spare renditions of some spectacular settings.

    American Canyon heralds the voice of a completely original Indian American writer—rejecting often-told assimilation stories for a much more nuanced exploration of how migration creates spiritual and physical disjunction, and how to exorcise the ghosts of history.
