Larkspur - The Reading Together Book Groups discuss "Seven Stories Up" and "Time Fetch"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Sunday, August 3 at 2pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Groups on Sunday, August 3rd at 2pm and 4pm.

The first group, for kids ages 8-10, is reading Seven Stories Up by Laurel Snyder and will meet at 2pm. In 1987, Annie’s grandmother lies on her deathbed at the Hotel Calvert. Annie and her mother have come to visit, though Annie’s never met her grandmother. After her first night in the hotel, Annie suddenly wakes up fifty years earlier, in 1937, in the bedroom of a suspiciously familiar girl named Molly. Annie’s unsure of what happened, but when she discovers Molly has never been outside the hotel, it’s time for an adventure and an unlikely friendship that will change their family forever.

The second group, for kids ages 10-12, is reading Time Fetch by Amy Herrick and will meet at 4pm. When a harmless-enough-looking rock turns out to be a sleeping Time Fetch, eighth-grade loner Edward has no idea what he’s unleashed. Awakened too early, The Time Fetch begins to gobble up time, and soon all those who’ve touched the Fetch must come together to stop it from unraveling the entire fabric of the universe.

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!

Matthew Stewart discusses and signs Nature's God: The Heretical Origins of the American Republic
Vroman's Bookstore, Tuesday, August 5 at 7pm
Radicals like Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, and Ethan Allen who founded America set their sights on a revolution of the mind. Derided as “infidels” and “atheists” in their own time, they wanted to liberate us not just from one king but from the tyranny of supernatural religion. The ideas that inspired them were neither British nor Christian but largely ancient, and pagan. Drawing deeply on the study of European philosophy, Matthew Stewart pursues a thoroughly researched lineage of the philosophical ideas from which America's revolutionaries drew their inspiration.

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your Vroman's receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.

She is a graduate of the University of Iowa Writer’s Workshop and founded the Writing Workshops Los Angeles. After recently receiving a mention by Stephen Colbert in his effort to support indie bookstores, her novel California became one of the most pre-ordered debut titles in Hachette’s history.
