Wild Within: How Rescuing Owls Inspired a Family

Melissa Hart, a desperately lonely young divorcée and L.A. transplant, finds herself stranded in rainy Eugene, Oregon, working from home in the company of her two cats and two large mutts. At the local dog park, she meets a fellow dog owner named Jonathan. When he invites her to accompany him on a drive to Portland to retrieve six hundred pounds of frozen rats and a fledgling barred owl, sparks fly!

Wild Within is a delight, an uncommon braiding of family, heartbreak, romance, redemption, and—of course—raptors.” —Lyanda Lynn Haupt, author of Crow Planet and The Urban Bestiary

Melissa Hart grew up in Southern California and earned her B.A. in Literature from the College of Creative Studies at U.C. Santa Barbara. She earned her M.F.A. in Creative Writing at Goddard College in Vermont. She is a nature and travel writer and the author of Gringa: A Contradictory Girlhood. She teaches feature and travel writing at the University of Oregon.

Oakland - The Diesel Readers discuss "The Circle"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Monday, August 25 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Diesel Readers back to the store to discuss The Circle by Dave Eggers on Monday, August 25th at 7pm.When Mae Holland is hired to work for The Circle, the world’s most powerful internet company headquartered on a sprawling California campus, she rightly feels she's been given the opportunity of a lifetime. As she tours the open-plan office spaces, the towering glass dining facilities, the cozy dorms for those who spend nights at work, she is thrilled with the company's modernity and activity. There are parties that last through the night; there are famous musicians playing on the lawn; there are athletic activities, clubs, and brunches; there is even an aquarium of rare fish retrieved from the Marianas Trench by the CEO. Mae can't believe her great fortune to work for the most influential company in the world, even as life beyond the campus grows distant, even as a strange encounter with a colleague leaves her shaken, even as her role at The Circle becomes increasingly public.

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