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.

Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, August 31 at 2pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Groups on Sunday, August 31st at 2pm and 4pm.

The first group, for kids ages 8-10, is reading Almost Super by Marion Jensen and will meet at 2pm. Everyone over the age of twelve in the Bailey family gets a superpower in order to protect the world from the supervillainous Johnson family. But brothers Rafter and Bailey get superpowers that turn out to be super lame. Rafter can strike matches on polyester. Benny can turn his “innie” belly button into an “outie.” Together with classmate and nemesis Juanita Johnson, they discover that everything they knew about superheroes and supervillains may be all wrong, and it’ll be up to the three of them to make things right. They may not have great powers, but together, they’re Almost Super.

The second group, for kids ages 10-12, is reading The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier and will meet at 4pm. Two abandoned Irish siblings, Molly and Kip, go to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor. But the house and the family who lives there are not quite what they seem. Soon the children are confronted by a mysterious specter and an ancient curse that threatens their very lives **Warning** This book is creepy!

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!
