Oakland - Literary Karaoke Night
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Saturday, October 25 at 7:30pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland invites you to the store for Literary Karaoke Night on Saturday, October 25th at 7:30pm.

It's back! We've had so much fun at our previous Literary Karaoke Nights that *gasp* we're doing it again.

We’ve all enjoyed (or endured, depending on your perspective) musical karaoke. Warbling, heart-felt renditions of “I Will Always Love You” and hand-held “Islands in the Stream” duets – all fueled by a bit of enthusiasm, encouragement and . . . well, more often than not, alcohol. Literary Karaoke is not so different, minus the warbling. We’ll bring the microphone and I bet we can even find a few books lying around if you bring your voices. The steps are simple. Bring something from home or grab a book off one of our shelves, read one or two pages from it, and perhaps just as important . . . listen to everybody else do the same. All we ask is that it not be something you wrote. There are plenty of places to do that. We’re a little different at Diesel, so you’d expect us to do things a bit differently too. (Translated: there just might be a bottle of something strong and distilled, should you need some liquid courage or your voice a smoky rasp.)

Sunday, October 26, 11:00 a.m.

The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nut House

Redwood Shores Branch Library, 399 Marine Parkway @ Bridge Parkway Love the Pete The Cat picture books? We certainly do and are thrilled that Eric Litwin is visiting with his new book, The Nuts: Bedtime at the Nut House. Eric will do a full performance of his Bedtime at the Nut House song, as well as several additional songs. He's an exceptional performer - we can't wait. In this catchy bedtime adventure, it's bedtime at the Nut House, but Hazel and Wally Nut aren't ready to settle down just yet. Instead they're bouncing, wiggling, and howling at the moon, and it's up to Mama Nut to guide and wrangle her lovable and rambunctious little ones into bed. Litwin's expert use of repetition, call-and-response, and clever rhyme offers an unforgettable interactive reading experience inviting readers young and old to join in the nutty fun.

Larkspur-The Reading Together Book Group discusses "The Fourteenth Goldfish"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, October 26 at 2pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Larkspur welcomes kids and parents to the store for our Reading Together Book Group on Sunday, October 26th at 2pm. This month's selection for kids ages 8-10, is The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm.

Eleven-year-old Ellie has never liked change. She misses fifth grade. She misses her old best friend. She even misses her dearly departed goldfish. Then one day a strange boy shows up. He’s bossy. He’s cranky. And weirdly enough... he looks a lot like Ellie’s grandfather, a scientist who’s always been slightly obsessed with immortality. Could this pimply boy really be Grandpa Melvin? Has he finally found the secret to eternal youth? 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!

Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Game of Thrones meets Graceling in this striking fantasy tale of dark magic, dangerous politics, and discovering your true self. Sara Raasch’s debut fantasy is a lightning-fast story of loyalty, love, and controlling one’s destiny.

On The Fence by Kasie West

She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door. With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game.

Ignited by Corrine Jackson

Ever since Remy O'Malley discovered her dual identity as a Healer and a Protector, she's kept alive by staying one step ahead of both sides in this centuries-old war. Now someone's trying to draw her out of hiding, using her kidnapped father as bait.

Café Scientifique presents JOHN BRANCH
Kepler's Books, Tuesday, October 28 at 6:30pm
John Branch, Pulitzer Prize-winning sports reporter for The New York Times

Tuesday, October 28, 6:30 p.m.

SRI Menlo Park, Middlefield Road at Ringwood, Menlo Park

A Co-Production of the Bay Area Science Festival and Café Scientifique Silicon Valley @SRI

Widely regarded as the toughest man in the NHL, Derek Boogaard was a gentle man off the ice but a merciless fighter on it. We'll explore Boogaard's unlikely journey from lumbering kid playing pond-hockey; to his junior hockey days, when one brutal outburst of violence brought Boogaard to the attention of professional scouts; to his days and nights as a star enforcer with the Minnesota Wild and the storied New York Rangers.

Boogaard's story raises deep and disturbing questions about the systemic brutality of contact sports—and the damage that reaches far beyond the game and does so more quickly and at younger ages than has ever been suspected. We'll discuss the current science and technology being used to diagnose and detect these injuries and what that may mean to the future of these sports.

Speakers: John Branch, Pulitzer Prize-winning sports reporter for The New York Times Dr. Joel Kramer, Professor of Neuropsychology in Neurology and Director of the Memory and Aging Center Neuropsychology Program, UC San Francisco Dr. David Camarillo, Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering, Stanford University Moderator, Katie Baker, Grantland

Oakland- The Seated Diesels discuss "The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Tuesday, October 28 at 7:30pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Seated Diesels back to the store to discuss The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum: Or Where Violence Develops and Where It Can Lead by Heinrich Boll on Tuesday, October 28th at 7:30 pm.

In an era in which journalists will stop at nothing to break a story, Heinrich Boll's, The Lost Honor of Katharina Blum, has taken on heightened relevance. A young woman's association with a hunted man makes her the target of a journalist determined to grab headlines by portraying her as an evil woman. As the attacks on her escalate and she becomes the victim of anonymous threats, Katharina sees only one way out of her nightmare. Turning the mystery genre on its head, the novel begins with the confession of a crime, drawing the reader into a web of sensationalism, character assassination, and the unavoidable eruption of violence.

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

    The Way It Turned Out: A Memoir

    Spanning seven decades, this memoir moves the reader across The Middle East, Europe, and the United States. Herant explores the role of chance in his own life, but his findings will resonate with your own experiences. As he reconstructs past events in the light of the present, he is able to contextualize personal events within historical time periods.

    Herant Katchadourian is perhaps best known as a gifted teacher who was nominated seven times as Outstanding Professor and Class Day Speaker during his long career at Stanford, but he also revels in the joys of storytelling. This immensely readable and instructive memoir takes the reader through the unlikely, moving, and often hilarious turns in Katchadourian’s life, showing how The Way It Turned Out is hardly the way anyone would have guessed it to be.

    Richard Evans is an international businessman and traveler who has served in senior leadership positions for several Fortune 500 companies. He has been a frequent speaker at the World Economic Forum in Davos, the Global Economic Symposium and the Global Summit for Women. He and his wife Gretchen live in San Francisco - where he has published a photography book on Haight Ashbury and San Francisco. He met Herant Katchadourian on a Stanford Travel/Study trip on a ship off the coast of Spain in 2012.
