Oakland - The Diesel Readers discuss "Sparta"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Monday, September 22 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Diesel Readers back to the store to discuss Sparta by Roxana Robinson on Monday, September 22nd at 7pm.Conrad Farrell, an officer in the Marines, has just returned home after four years in Iraq. He wasn’t shot or wounded, and he hasn’t suffered psychological troubles. Still, civilian life is nothing like it should be. He finds it hard to reconnect with the people and places he loved. As his life becomes increasingly difficult to negotiate – unable to recover his past, unable to imagine his future, unable to stay in the present – Conrad begins to feel trapped, and fears that his growing rage will have irreparable consequences.

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

Hampton Sides - Kingdom of Ice
Green Apple Books on the Park, Wednesday, September 24 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple Books and the S.F. Elks Lodge, in welcoming award-winning author Hampton Sides to the historic San Francisco Elks Lodge on Union Square, to celebrate his newest book, In the kingdom of ice, on Wednesday, September 24 at 7:00 p.m. Hampton Sides is the best-selling author of Ghost Soldiers and Hellhound On His Trail, but his newest chronicle of the grand and terrible polar voyage of The Jeanette, and America's last efforts at reaching the North Pole in the 1890s, is his most thrilling yet. With strong ties to San Francisco, and a cast of characters to rival any in history (including John Muir, and controversial newspaper magnate and bon vivant, James Gordon Bennett) In the kingdom of ice is a gripping saga of courage and suffering that makes Shackelton's Endurance seem like a walk in the park on a lazy Sunday afternoon. The free event is part of the successful author series, "Cocktails and Conversations at the Lodge," and will be held in the main room of the S.F. Elks Lodge, the oldest extant lodge in the United States, established in 1873. An architectural marvel, this normally private Elk's lodge is home to guests wishing to celebrate the publication of In the kingdom of ice, and those hoping to have a cocktial with Hampton Sides—of course, this means you!

Sean Wilsey in Conversation with Pat Montandon

Hattery and Green Apple Books Present: The State of It All: Sean Wilsey in conversation with Pat Montandon Wednesday September 24 at 7pm Click here for ticket information What happens when an acclaimed memoirist sits down for a conversation with his mother? Join us for a conversation with author Sean Wilsey, who captured the curiosity of life as a San Francisco society child in his 2005 memoir Oh the Glory of It All. Wilsey, an avid skateboarder and boarding school wayfarer, chronicled a youth spent in and out of San Francisco’s upper echelons with what the New York Times described as a “vivid mix of brio, self-awareness and sophistication.” In Wilsey’s new collection of essays, More Curious, the author paints a compelling picture of an America he found to be “much kinder and less homogenous” than he feared. More Curious spans fifteen years of Wilsey’s work and includes musings on life in rural Texas, what soccer and religion have in common, and the state of skateboarding — and American culture — today. Other essays include those previously published in GQ, McSweeney’s, The New York Times Magazine, National Geographic, Fast Company, and Vanity Fair. Join Wilsey as he discusses More Curious, the power of place, and memoir as catharsis. Wilsey will be joined in conversation by his mother, non-fiction author and Nobel Peace Prize nominee Pat Montandon.

Oakland - Naja Marie Aidt discusses and signs "Baboon"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Wednesday, September 24 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes author Naja Marie Aidt to the store to discuss and sign the first English translation of her book, Baboon, on Wednesday, September 24th at 7pm.The short stories of Baboon are built on the common themes of sex, love, desire, and gender, but quickly accelerate into a desperate, frantic realm entirely Aidt’s own. In one, a whore shows up unannounced at a man's apartment and then violently threatens him when he tries to make her leave. In another, a wife takes her husband to a city where it is women, not men, who are the dominant sex--but was it all a hallucination when she finds herself tied to a board and dragged back to his car? And in the unforgettable "Blackcurrant," two young women who have turned to lesbianism abscond to a farm, where they discover that their neighbor's son is experimenting with his own kind of sexuality.

Originally from Greenland, Naja Marie Aidt is a Danish poet and author with nearly 20 works in various genres to her name. She has received numerous honors, including the Nordic nations' most prestigious literary prize, the Nordic Council's Literature Prize, in 2008 for Baboon, and her work has been translated into several languages. She has also been anthologized in the prestigious "Best European Fiction" series and has appeared in leading American journals of translation. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
