Oakland - The Seated Diesels discuss "My Ántonia"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Tuesday, July 22 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Seated Diesels back to the store to discuss My Ántonia By Willa Cather on Tuesday, July 22nd at 7pm.Widely recognized as Willa Cather’s greatest novel, My Ántonia is a soulful and rich portrait of a pioneer woman’s simple yet heroic life. The spirited daughter of Bohemian immigrants, Ántonia must adapt to a hard existence on the desolate prairies of the Midwest. Enduring childhood poverty, teenage seduction, and family tragedy, she eventually becomes a wife and mother on a Nebraska farm. A fictional record of how women helped forge the communities that formed a nation, My Ántonia is also a hauntingly eloquent celebration of the strength, courage, and spirit of America’s early pioneers.

This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Oakland - "Our Struggle," a Knausgaard Reading Group
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Wednesday, July 23 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland hosts "Our Struggle," a Knausgaard Reading Group with Scott Esposito to discuss My Struggle, Volume One by Karl Ove Knausgaard, on Wednesday, July 23rd at 7pm.Feted by the major literary presses and fast becoming a worldwide literary sensation, from his native Norway to North Dakota, the six-volume memoir-novel, My Struggle by Karl Ove Knausgaard has proven itself to invite reflection and opinion. Join us for a special evening of discussion of volume one, facilitated by Scott Esposito, who in addition to his duties at the Center for the Art of Translation in San Francisco is a prolific book reviewer for the San Francisco Chronicle (most recently of My Struggle, Volume Three), the Washington Post, and the Kenyon Review, amongst many others. Scott also conducted a long, in-depth interview of Knausgaard for the latest issue of Tin House, which makes him no stranger to wondering about what makes this brooding Norwegian so inviting to contemporary readers.

NYMBC Presents MAGGIE STIEFVATER at the Alameda Free Library
Books Inc. in Alameda, Wednesday, July 23 at 7:30pm
The Alameda Free Library and Not Your Mother's Book Club™ present Michael L. Printz-Honoree and #1 New York Times-bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater sharing book four in her Shiver series, Sinner.

Maggie’s new book, Sinner, is another in the Wolves of Mercy Falls universe, but is meant to be read as a stand-alone from the series. Following Cole St. Clair and Isabel Culpeper, this neon-pink, sun-kissed love story is impossibly hot. It seems to us at NYMBC that Maggie only gets better with each book she writes. Come kick it with her before she gets too fancy and famous to ever visit us again.

Wendy Ortiz reads from her new memoir Excavation

Wendy Ortiz reads from Excavation: A Memoir

Wednesday, July 23, 7:30 pm

Location: Pegasus Books Downtown

Wendy C. Ortiz was an only child and a bookish, insecure girl living with alcoholic parents in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Her relationship with a charming and deeply flawed private school teacher fifteen years her senior appeared to give her the kind of power teenagers wish for, regardless of consequences. Her teacher—now a registered sex offender—continually encouraged her passion for writing while making her promise she was not leaving any written record about their dangerous sexual relationship. This conflicted relationship with her teacher may have been just five years long, but would imprint itself on her and her later relationships, queer and straight, for the rest of her life. In Excavation: A Memoir, the black and white of the standard victim/perpetrator stereotype gives way to unsettling grays. The present-day narrator reflects on the girl she once was, as well as the teacher and parent she has become. It's a beautifully written and powerful story of a woman reclaiming her whole heart.

Oakland - C.S. Soong Talk - "Who's in Charge Here?"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Thursday, July 24 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes KPFA host and political journalist C.S. Soong to the store to deliver a talk entitled “Who's in Charge Here? Reflections on Work, Alienation, and Human Agency” on Thursday, July 24th at 7pm.

Human beings make things in cooperation with others, but some of these things, like interest rates and commodity prices, appear to act (and fluctuate) independently of us, their creators. Drawing on interviews he has conducted with a number of political theorists as well as on his own research, C.S. Soong investigates this phenomenon of alienation and its impact on our sense of our own power to affect and change the status quo.

C.S. Soong is a co-founder and host of Against the Grain, a syndicated radio program about progressive and radical theory and activism based at KPFA in Berkeley. He holds degrees from Brown University and Cornell Law School, and he has done graduate work in philosophy at San Francisco State.
