99 Poems for the 99 Percent

99 Poems is #2 on the Small Press Distribution Poetry Bestseller List!

Come celebrate poems written for the people with contributors to the new collection, 99 Poems for the 99 Percent.

Poetry is not an inaccessible and irrelevant art form, and the newest collection edited by Dean Rader proves that today's poetry continues the rich tradition of taking on important political and social events. American poetry is about democracy, and the poems in this collection reach you on issues you care about in a voice you can recognize. These are poems full of anger, love, protest, humor, contemplation, hope, frustration, and beauty.

The collection started as a project that posted 99 original poems over 99 days by major American poets, emerging writers, students, and ordinary Americans. The project encompasses a plurality of voices, approaches, and visions, and is now available in book form.

The event will feature poets Ellen Bass, Sally Ashton, Dean Rader, J.P. Dancing Bear, C.J. Sage, Rachelle Escamilla, Dan Bellm and Dennis Richardson.

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.

RUTH OZEKI in conversation with JOAN BIGWOOD

Ruth Ozeki in conversation with Joan Bigwood

Saturday, September 20, 4:00 p.m.

A Tale for the Time Being

A brilliant, unforgettable novel from bestselling author Ruth Ozeki—shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award

In Tokyo, sixteen-year-old Nao has decided there’s only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates’ bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great grandmother, a Buddhist nun who’s lived more than a century. Across the Pacific, we meet Ruth, a novelist living on a remote island who discovers a collection of artifacts washed ashore in a Hello Kitty lunchbox—possibly debris from the devastating 2011 tsunami. As the mystery of its contents unfolds, Ruth is pulled into the past, into Nao’s drama and her unknown fate, and forward into her own future.

Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.

“A delightful yet sometimes harrowing novel . . . Many of the elements of Nao’s story—schoolgirl bullying, unemployed suicidal ‘salarymen,’ kamikaze pilots—are among a Western reader’s most familiar images of Japan, but in Nao’s telling, refracted through Ruth’s musings, they become fresh and immediate, occasionally searingly painful. Ozeki takes on big themes . . . all drawn into the stories of two ‘time beings,’ Ruth and Nao, whose own fates are inextricably bound.” —The New York Times Book Review

Ruth Ozeki is a novelist, filmmaker, and Zen Buddhist priest. Her first two novels, My Year of Meats (1998) and All Over Creation (2003), have been translated into 11 languages and published in 14 countries. Her most recent work, A Tale for the Time-Being (2013), was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and will be published in over thirty countries.

Joan Bigwood, like Ruth, is a graduate of Smith College. She has spent the past twenty-five years earning her keep as a writer, primarily in marketing communications. Her comic novel, Co-opted, won an Indie Reader award and her new play, Or Current Resident, is under development locally. Through social media channels, Joan has reached out to readers of Ruth's latest novel, A Tale for the Time Being, and has collected the questions on everybody's lips, covering topics ranging from Zen Buddhist practices to Japanese-style bullying, environmental activism and writer's block.

Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to “aging out” out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse... As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance. Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life – answers that will ultimately free them both. Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.
