Larkspur - The Reading Together Book Groups discuss "Almost Super" and "The Night Gardener"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, August 31 at 2pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Groups on Sunday, August 31st at 2pm and 4pm.

The first group, for kids ages 8-10, is reading Almost Super by Marion Jensen and will meet at 2pm. Everyone over the age of twelve in the Bailey family gets a superpower in order to protect the world from the supervillainous Johnson family. But brothers Rafter and Bailey get superpowers that turn out to be super lame. Rafter can strike matches on polyester. Benny can turn his “innie” belly button into an “outie.” Together with classmate and nemesis Juanita Johnson, they discover that everything they knew about superheroes and supervillains may be all wrong, and it’ll be up to the three of them to make things right. They may not have great powers, but together, they’re Almost Super.

The second group, for kids ages 10-12, is reading The Night Gardener by Jonathan Auxier and will meet at 4pm. Two abandoned Irish siblings, Molly and Kip, go to work as servants at a creepy, crumbling English manor. But the house and the family who lives there are not quite what they seem. Soon the children are confronted by a mysterious specter and an ancient curse that threatens their very lives **Warning** This book is creepy!

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!

Oakland - Poetry Flash with Marcia Falk and Steven Rood
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, September 7 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland hosts another installment of the always excellent Poetry Flash with Marcia Falk and Steven Rood on Sunday, September 7th at 3pm.

Marcia Falk is a poet, a scholar, and a translator from both Hebrew and Yiddish. Her latest book is The Days Between: Blessings, Poems, and Directions of the Heart for the Jewish High Holiday Season, a volume for those seeking to connect more deeply with their Judaism, and for all readers in search of a contemplative approach to the themes of the fall season. Among her other publications are three books of poems, a translation of The Song of Songs praised by both Isaac Bashevis Singer and Adrienne Rich, a translation of the twentieth century mystic Zelda Schneurson Mishkovsky from the Hebrew, and another of the Yiddish modernist Malka Heifetz Tussman.

Steven Rood’s book of poems, I Say Your Name, is devoted to the memory of two men: the great poet Jack Gilbert, and to Rood’s own late psychotherapist. It is filled with vivid, loving re-creation, humor, and profound empathy. He has been for many years a member of the workshop begun by the legendary poet Jack Gilbert at San Francisco State in 1967 which continues to this day. He was a primary caregiver to Gilbert during his last Alzheimer’s days. While not available to order, copies of Steven's books will be for sale at the event.

Poetry Flash readings are wheelchair accessible; ASL interpreters may be requested one week in advance from editor@poetryflash.org. Visit Poetryflash.org for more events and reviews!
