Oakland - Literary Karaoke Night
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Saturday, April 19 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland invites you to the store for our first Literary Karaoke Night on Saturday, April 19th at 7pm.

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.)

Oakland - The Diesel Readers discuss "Spook"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Monday, April 21 at 7pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Diesel Readers back to the store to discuss Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife by Mary Roach on Monday, April 21st at 7pm.

With her first book, Stiff, the ever-curious Mary Roach explored what happens to our corporeal form after death. In her follow-up book, Spook, she shifts her focus to the ethereal. What happens to the soul? Is there even one to begin with? How can we know? Consulting a range of modern-day soul-searchers – mystics, engineers, scientists, mediums, doctors and gurus – she seeks answers to one of the oldest questions in the world: what happens to us when we die?

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