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.

Thursday, July 24, 12:00 p.m.

The Intel Trinity: How Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore, and Andy Grove Built the World’s Most Important Company

Computer History Museum, 1401 Shoreline Blvd., Mountain View

On a warm September morning in 1957 seven key employees of Shockley Transistor of Mountain View, California decided to quit their jobs and strike out on their own, marking the beginning of what would become Silicon Valley. These men would go on to form Fairchild Semiconductor and revolutionize the way we work and live.

Drawing on unprecedented access to the Intel archives and on interviews and oral histories from its earliest days through the present, Malone reveals how each member of the founding Intel trio brought different things at different times. Noyce was the charismatic leader and the most respected high-tech figure of his generation. Gordon Moore set the law that accelerated the pace of innovation—the biennial doubling of computer chip performance. Andy Grove was the greatest and most ferocious businessman of his generation. Together, these three achieved Intel’s historic success.

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.

Novel Society: Adults Read Teen Lit~ July 24
Hicklebee's, Thursday, July 24 at 7pm
We'll be discussing Yaqui Delgado Wants to Kick Your Ass by Meg Medina, Thursday July 24 @ 7:00.

Winner of the 2014 Pura Belpré Author Award

In Meg Medina’s compelling new novel, a Latina teen is targeted by a bully at her new school — and must discover resources she never knew she had.

One morning before school, some girl tells Piddy Sanchez that Yaqui Delgado hates her and wants to kick her ass. Piddy doesn’t even know who Yaqui is, never mind what she’s done to piss her off. Word is that Yaqui thinks Piddy is stuck-up, shakes her stuff when she walks, and isn’t Latin enough with her white skin, good grades, and no accent. And Yaqui isn’t kidding around, so Piddy better watch her back. At first Piddy is more concerned with trying to find out more about the father she’s never met and how to balance honors courses with her weekend job at the neighborhood hair salon. But as the harassment escalates, avoiding Yaqui and her gang starts to take over Piddy’s life. Is there any way for Piddy to survive without closing herself off or running away? In an all-too-realistic novel, Meg Medina portrays a sympathetic heroine who is forced to decide who she really is.
