Malibu - P.F. Sloan and S.E. Feinberg discuss and sign "What's Exactly the Matter with Me?"
Diesel, a bookstore - Malibu, Sunday, July 27 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Malibu welcomes P.F. Sloan and S.E. Feinberg to the store to discuss the memoir, What's Exactly the Matter with Me? Memoirs of a Life in Music on Sunday, July 27th at 3pm. P.F. Sloan was one of the most prolific and influential geniuses to emerge from the golden age of the 60s. From his little studio at Dunhill Records, Sloan was a veritable hit-machine, writing and playing guitar for The Mamas & The Papas, Barry McGuire, Johnny Rivers and more. He was everywhere, and then he disappeared. Beginning with a chance meeting with Elvis Presley, this is the story of a boy whose only love was music. It's a story of dreams, success, destruction, and miraculous resurrection. Along the way we encounter legendary musicians and bands like, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and more. But there are also UFOs and psychiatric hospitals, record industry devils and Greenwich Village angels, and a magical trip to India to be with the holy man Sai Baba. This is the dangerous ride and inspiring story of one of the greatest songwriters in popular music—and also one of the most elusive and mysterious. P.F. Sloan is a legendary songwriter and performer. Born Philip Gary Schlein in New York in 1945, he moved to California with his family in the late 50s and recorded his first single, ‘All I Want Is Loving,’ at the age of fourteen. He soon became a key figure on the Los Angeles music scene, writing and appearing on dozens of hit records during pop’s golden age in the mid 60s. S.E. Feinberg is a playwright, script consultant, and humorist based in Topanga Canyon, California. He recently co-wrote, with P.F. Sloan, Louie! Louie!, a musical based on the life of Ludwig van Beethoven.

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.
