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.)

Susan Shillinglaw

Thursday, April 17, 7:30 p.m.

Carol and John Steinbeck: Portrait of a Marriage Carol Henning Steinbeck, writer John Steinbeck’s first wife, was his creative anchor, the inspiration for his great work of the 1930s, culminating in The Grapes of Wrath. Carol was unconventional, artistic, and compelling. In many ways Carol’s story is all too familiar: a creative and intelligent woman subsumes her own life and work into that of her husband. Together, they brought forth one of the enduring novels of the 20th century. “A fascinating story that needs to be made known widely . . . Not just the story of Carol and her relationship to John, but a new and revealing look at Steinbeck himself. So much is new here, and the manuscript pushes so deep into the lives of the Steinbecks, that it might well become the primary biography of that period.” --Jackson Benson, author of John Steinbeck, Writer: A Biography Susan Shillinglaw, professor of English at San Jose State University, directed the Center for Steinbeck Studies there from 1987 to 2005. She is currently scholar in residence at the National Steinbeck Center in Salinas.

Youth Event: Matthew Jobin

Friday, April 18, 7:00 p.m.

The Nethergrim

Everyone in Moorvale believes the legend: The brave knight Tristan and the famed wizard Vithric, in an epic battle decades ago, had defeated the evil Nethergrim and his minions. To this day, songs are sung and festivals held in the heroes' honor. Yet now something dark has crept over the village. First animals disappear, their only remains a pile of bones licked clean. Then something worse: children disappear. The whispers begin quietly yet soon turn into a shout: The Nethergrim has returned!

Edmund’s brother is one of the missing, and Edmund knows he must do something to save his life. But what? Though a student of magic, he struggles to cast even the simplest spell. Still, he and his friends swallow their fear and set out to battle an ancient evil whose powers none of them can imagine. They will need to come together--and work apart--in ways that will test every ounce of resolve.

In a story reminiscent of the Ranger’s Apprentice epic and the Chronicles of Narnia, Matthew Jobin weaves reality, magic, and adventure into the next great fantasy phenomenon.

Story Time with Emily Jiang and April Chu

Saturday, April 19, 2:00 p.m.

Summoning the Phoenix: Poems and Prose about Chinese Musical Instruments

Join us for a special story time launch party celebrating Emily Jiang's collaboration with April Chu: Summoning the Phoenix: Poems and Prose about Chinese Musical Instruments.

Every musician knows that learning to play an instrument has its challenges and its rewards. There's the embarrassing first day of rehearsal, but also the joy of making friends in the orchestra. There's dealing with slippery concert dress, or simply getting swept up in the music. The twelve children in this book are just like any other musicians practicing their instruments and preparing for a concert.

But what sets these music lovers apart is that they all play traditional Chinese musical instruments in a Chinese orchestra. Including both flights of fancy and practical considerations, lively poems capture each child's musical experience with a different Chinese instrument, while sidebars provide more information about each one. This collection of poetry, full of gorgeous illustrations, depicts each fascinating instrument and takes readers on a delightful musical journey.

Join us to celebrate this joint debut with an afternoon full of Chinese food, musical activities based on their book, and giveaways. And come prepared to learn a Chinese folksong.

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.)
