Tobias Buckell Signs in San Diego
Mysterious Galaxy, Tuesday, July 29 at 7pm
Best-selling SF author and futurist Tobias Buckell continues his tradition of thrilling and diverse stories, and his exploration of a world transformed by climate change with Hurricane Fever, the second in the Arctic Rising future-thriller series. Hurricane Fever earned praise from Kirkus — “Buckell has written a smart and well-constructed tale that’s filled with excitement and the flavor of the Caribbean isles,” and Publishers Weekly – “The scenes of sailing and spying action move quickly, and the climax, set on a supersized satellite-launching cannon, is one white cat shy of a Bond movie.” Keep your books dry and join us in-store to talk about the shape of the future and espionage.

Brentwood - Rebecca Rotert discusses and signs "Last Night at the Blue Angel"
Diesel, a bookstore - Brentwood, Thursday, July 31 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Rebecca Rotert to the store to discuss and sign her new novel, Last night at the blue angel, on Thursday, July 31st at 7pm.

It's the 1960s. Between Vietnam and the Cold War abroad, and the Civil Rights Movement and the counterculture revolution at home, Chicago teems with tension. Naomi Hill is a singer at the Blue Angel club. She’s seductive and ambitious, and she’s been on the brink of stardom for nearly ten years. But she’s also self-destructive, and her charms often hurt those closest to her, a fact her daughter Sophia knows only too well. Growing up in this time of unrest, and a casualty of her mother’s struggle for fame and adoration, Sophia harbors a fear that her world could disappear at any moment. Her only constant is the colorful and untraditional family that surrounds her and her mother, particularly the photographer Jim, who is her best friend, surrogate father, and protector. The problem is that Jim, like so many others, is deeply in love with Naomi.

Rebecca Rotert received an M.A. in Literature from Hollins College, where she was the recipient of the Academy of American Poets prize. Her poetry and essays have appeared in a range of magazines and journals. She’s an experienced singer and songwriter, and a teacher with the Nebraska Writers Collective. She lives in Omaha, Nebraska. Last night at the blue angel is her first novel.

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!
