Changing the Way We Die: Compassionate End-Of-Life Care and the Hospice Movement
The Commonwealth Club of California, Thursday, April 17 at 12pm
Is there really such a thing as a good death? How can people facing death live fully in the time they have left? Smith and Himmel are prize-winning journalists and former colleagues at The San Jose Mercury News whose fathers’ deaths propelled them to explore these questions and the nation’s $17 billion hospice industry. More than 1.5 million Americans a year die in hospice care – 44 percent of all deaths – yet most patients come in too late to get the full benefits. As 76 million baby boomers turn 65, commercialization by for-profit hospices threatens to undermine the hospice philosophy of compassionate, comprehensive, patient-driven care. Smith and Himmel examine the shifting attitudes and practices around death and dying, through the stories of patients, families, doctors and the corporate giants that increasingly own this “market.” What choices can each of us make now to get the best care possible when the time comes? How can we prepare to help those we love to die on their own terms? Join an eye-opening conversation about what you need to know before you need to know it. - See more at: http://www.commonwealthclub.org/events/2014-04-17/changing-way-we-die#sthash.MO6...

Oakland - World Book Night Pick-Up Party
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Thursday, April 17 at 6pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland invites you to our World Book Night Pick-Up Party on Thursday, April 17th at 6pm.

World Book Night on April 23rd is a one-of-a-kind event, a special chance for people to share their love of reading with those who don’t regularly read, whether for reasons of means or geography. Every year, 25,000 passionate volunteers all across America give a total of half a million books within their communities. Why? Because they firmly believe that reading can change your life. And they’re not alone. According to the National Endowment for the Arts, “reading improves employability, social interaction, enfranchisement, and can have a positive effect on mental health and happiness. Book readers are more likely to participate in positive activities such as volunteering, attending cultural events, and even physical exercise.”

Whether you’ve volunteered already for your box of books, are simply curious to know more, or would like to show your support, come to the pick-up party! Enjoy pie and libations, swap stories and share your love of reading! (And if you forgot to volunteer, come down anyway! We'll have a handful of extra boxes for latecomers.)

Oakland - Literary Karaoke Night
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Saturday, April 19 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland invites you to the store for our first Literary Karaoke Night on Saturday, April 19th at 7pm.

We’ve all enjoyed (or endured, depending on your perspective) musical karaoke. Warbling, heart-felt renditions of “I Will Always Love You” and hand-held “Islands in the Stream” duets – all fueled by a bit of enthusiasm, encouragement and . . . well, more often than not, alcohol. Literary Karaoke is not so different, minus the warbling. We’ll bring the microphone and I bet we can even find a few books lying around if you bring your voices. The steps are simple. Bring something from home or grab a book off one of our shelves, read one or two pages from it, and perhaps just as important . . . listen to everybody else do the same. All we ask is that it not be something you wrote. There are plenty of places to do that. We’re a little different at Diesel, so you’d expect us to do things a bit differently too. (Translated: there just might be a bottle of something strong and distilled, should you need some liquid courage or your voice a smoky rasp.)

Oakland - The Diesel Readers discuss "Spook"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Monday, April 21 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Diesel Readers back to the store to discuss Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach on Monday, April 21st at 7pm.

With her first book, Stiff, the ever-curious Mary Roach explored what happens to our corporeal form after death. In her follow-up book, Spook, she shifts her focus to the ethereal. What happens to the soul? Is there even one to begin with? How can we know? Consulting a range of modern-day soul-searchers – mystics, engineers, scientists, mediums, doctors and gurus – she seeks answers to one of the oldest questions in the world: what happens to us when we die?

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