Larkspur - Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater discuss and sign "Juice"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Saturday, September 20 at 10:30am
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater to the store to discuss and sign their new book, Juice: Recipes for Juicing, Cleansing, and Living Well, on Saturday, September 20th at 10:30am. Please note: This event will take place under the big tent at the Marin Country Mart Farmers' Market.

Juicing was once considered a fringe practice of raw-food zealots, but now it has become a widely accepted source of vital nutrients and an integral part of a fit and healthy lifestyle. In this full-color health guide and cookbook (which really only requires a blender to use) the founders of Los Angeles-based Pressed Juicery demonstrate seventy-five of their most popular juices, including signature beverages like Chocolate Almond and Coconut Mint Chip. Also included are detailed instructions on how to do a juice cleanse safely, the benefits of juicing, and testimonials from those who have experienced personal health transformations.

Carly de Castro, Hedi Gores, and Hayden Slater are the founders of Pressed Juicery, a Los Angeles-based chain of juice shops with more than twenty locations in Northern and Southern California. Pressed Juicery has been featured in numerous magazines, TV and radio programs, and websites.

Oakland - Naja Marie Aidt discusses and signs "Baboon"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Wednesday, September 24 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Naja Marie Aidt to the store to discuss and sign the first English translation of her book, Baboon, on Wednesday, September 24th at 7pm.The short stories of Baboon are built on the common themes of sex, love, desire, and gender, but quickly accelerate into a desperate, frantic realm entirely Aidt’s own. In one, a whore shows up unannounced at a man's apartment and then violently threatens him when he tries to make her leave. In another, a wife takes her husband to a city where it is women, not men, who are the dominant sex--but was it all a hallucination when she finds herself tied to a board and dragged back to his car? And in the unforgettable "Blackcurrant," two young women who have turned to lesbianism abscond to a farm, where they discover that their neighbor's son is experimenting with his own kind of sexuality.

Originally from Greenland, Naja Marie Aidt is a Danish poet and author with nearly 20 works in various genres to her name. She has received numerous honors, including the Nordic nations' most prestigious literary prize, the Nordic Council's Literature Prize, in 2008 for Baboon, and her work has been translated into several languages. She has also been anthologized in the prestigious "Best European Fiction" series and has appeared in leading American journals of translation. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Sean Wilsey in Conversation with Pat Montandon
Green Apple Books on the Park, Wednesday, September 24 at 7pm
Hattery and Green Apple Books Present: The State of It All: Sean Wilsey in conversation with Pat Montandon Wednesday September 24 at 7pm Click here for ticket info What happens when an acclaimed memoirist sits down for a conversation with his mother? Join us for a conversation with author Sean Wilsey, who captured the curiosity of life as a San Francisco society child in his 2005 memoir Oh the Glory of It All. Wilsey, an avid skateboarder and boarding school wayfarer, chronicled a youth spent in and out of San Francisco’s upper echelons with what the New York Times described as a “vivid mix of brio, self-awareness and sophistication.” In Wilsey’s new collection of essays, More Curious, the author paints a compelling picture of an America he found to be “much kinder and less homogenous” than he feared. More Curious spans fifteen years of Wilsey’s work and includes musings on life in rural Texas, what soccer and religion have in common, and the state of skateboarding — and American culture — today. Other essays include those previously published in GQ, McSweeney’s, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Fast Company, and Vanity Fair. Join Wilsey as he discusses More Curious, the power of place, and memoir as catharsis. Wilsey will be joined in conversation by his mother, non-fiction author and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Pat Montandon.
