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!

Oakland - Erin Marie Daly discusses and signs "Generation RX"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Thursday, August 28 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes Erin Marie Daly to the store to discuss and sign her new book, Generation RX: A Story of Dope, Death, and America's Opiate Crisis, on Thursday, August 28th at 7pm.In 2009, Erin Marie Daly’s youngest brother Pat was found dead of a heroin overdose. He was twenty years old. He’d been an OxyContin addict, and over a few years, the powerful prescription painkiller had turned him from a fun-loving ball of energy to a heroin addict intent on his next fix. In an attempt to understand her brother’s struggle with opiates, Erin set out on a powerful personal journey, and was startled to discover a new twist to the ongoing prescription drug epidemic. Generation RX presents a disturbing new look at how a generation of young people, hooked on today’s increasingly powerful opioids, are finding themselves in the frightening grip of heroin.

Erin Marie Daly is the founder of Oxy Watchdog, a blog about painkillers and heroin addiction. She worked for five years as a senior reporter for Law360, where she covered the pharmaceutical industry and product liability litigation. In 2012, she was awarded the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Excellence in Journalism in the Online Reporting category from the Society for Professional Journalists. She was also nominated for a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Digital Journalism in 2007.
