Deena Goldstone discusses & signs Tell Me One Thing and Other Stories
Vroman's Bookstore, Monday, April 21 at 7pm
Set in California, Tell Me One Thing and Other Stories is an uplifting and poignant book about people finding their way toward happiness. In this tome are stories that deal with unexpected awakenings, death, unintended consequences, and the life we can create despite the grief we carry and even because of the grief we have experienced.

"Tell Me One Thing is a staggeringly honest portrait of people reaching for the courage to connect. Often starting from loss, her characters struggle against their own demons and the arbitrariness of life to find a way to love. I found myself in tears and then, just as often, my heart leapt with joy. Deena Goldstone has a deep and profound understanding of the human heart, and thankfully, in these exquisitely rendered stories, she shares her heart with us."—Delia Ephron, author of Sister Mother Husband Dog

"The beautiful, novelistic stories in Tell Me One Thing are poignant, heartbreaking, and very funny. But what unites them is Deena Goldstone's ability to show us what matters: that while the pursuit of family, friends and love might drive us crazy, it can also teach us to believe in things bigger than ourselves, and help us reach for the very heart of what it means to be human." —Thomas Christopher Greene, author of The Headmaster's Wife

PAT AND GINA NEELY BOOKSIGNING (Comfort Food From Our Southern Kitchen to Yours)
Eso Won Books, Wednesday, April 23 at 7pm
For Pat and Gina Neely the secret to a truly happy home is a lively mix of food and family. In their new book, the best-selling authors draw on their down-home roots and revisit the classic Southern recipes that have been passed down through generations. We’re drawn into the kitchens of their mothers and grandmothers and back to a time when produce was picked in the backyard garden and catfish was caught on afternoon fishing trips with Grandpa. In their signature style, Pat and Gina have taken the dishes they were raised on and updated them for today’s kitchens.

Inside you’ll find 100 recipes, including Small Batch Strawberry Jam (best when eaten with Easy Buttermilk and Cream Biscuits), Bourbon French Toast, Crunchy Fried Okra, Skillet Corn Bread, Grilled Succotash, Skillet Roasted Chicken, and Brunswick Stew (which combines a little of everything in your fridge).

Pat and Gina believe good food leads to good times and Back Home with the Neelys is sure to bring back fond memories of the tradition, history, and flavors that are present in every family. Come early and enjoy the cuisine discussion.

Brentwood - Poetry Readings with Rex Wilder and Kate Gale
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Wednesday, April 23 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Rex Wilder and Kate Gale to the store for a joint poetry reading on Wednesday, April 23rd at 7pm. Rex Wilder’s second collection introduces the world to a new form: the boomerang, a four-line nouveau haiku, an anti-Tweet that aims for permanence in an evanescent world. These “admirable throwaways” rhyme the first word or syllable with the last and move like a boomerang. Boomerangs in the Living Room catches in its sweep literature’s classic themes: love, death, family, and sex. Rex Wilder is the author of Waking Bodies, and his poems have appeared in publications such as Poetry, The New Republic, Yale Review, and The Times Literary Supplement. He is the Chief Creative Strategist for Advertising for Humanity, a marketing firm specializing in charities and community foundations. He lives in Pacific Palisades, California. Kate Gale’s newest collection is The Goldilocks Zone. Of her poetry, former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins says, “The clipped jumpy rhythm of these poems with their sudden bursts of syntax prove repeatedly that Kate Gale possesses a poetic tone and pace all her own. She is also refreshingly out of step with today's poetry of self-absorption, for she is fascinated less by her ego than by the strange variety of the world around us.” Dr. Kate Gale is managing editor of Red Hen Press, editor of the Los Angeles Review and President of the American Composers Forum, LA. She teaches in the Low Residency MFA program at the University of Nebraska and she serves on the boards of A Room of Her Own Foundation and Poetry Society of America. She is author of five books of poetry, the novel Lake of Fire, and six librettos including Rio de Sangre. Kate lives in Los Angeles with her husband and children.

Brentwood - Diane Leslie's Book Group with Author discusses "Off Course"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Thursday, April 24 at 5pm
Diane Leslie's Book Group with Author meets to discuss Michelle Huneven's novel, Off Course, on Thursday, April 24th at 5pm.

The best part? Michelle Huneven will be joining in the discussion! It is 1981, and Cressida Hartley, a young PhD candidate in economics, has just moved into her parents’ shabby A-frame in the Sierras. She's hoping to find enough solitude to finish her dissertation on art in the marketplace. Despite herself, though, she is soon drawn into the social life of the small mountain community. There’s Jakey Yates, the local lodge owner, big, burly, and attractive. There’s Rick Garsh, a contractor who gives Cress a part-time job and through whom she meets the Morrow brothers, skilled carpenters who are handsome, amusing, and thoroughly married. Increasingly dissatisfied with her dissertation, Cress falls prey to love, adultery, and obsession, and becomes the victim of her own perilous reasoning. For a young, intelligent woman seeking her place in life, love is the great distraction, and impossible love the greatest of all. Michelle Huneven is the author of Blame and a recipient of the Whiting Writers' Award in 2002, a GE Younger Writers Award in Fiction and a James Beard Award. She is presently a restaurant reviewer for LA Weekly. Her first novel, Round Rock, was named a New York Times Notable Book and a Los Angeles Times Best Book of the Year. She lives in Altadena, California.

Please Note: There is a $20 fee for this event and you must purchase your copy of the book from DIESEL.
