Oakland-Translators Zack Rogow and Renée Morel discuss Colette's "Shipwrecked on a Traffic Island"
Diesel, a bookstore - Oakland, Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 3pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes translators Zack Rogow and Renée Morel to the store to discuss and sign their newly translated collection of previously unpublished works by Colette, Shipwrecked on a Traffic Island, on Sunday, January 11th at 3pm. Renowned actor Lorri Holt will read from the book. She has appeared on many stages, including at A.C.T. and Berkeley Rep.

The French writer Colette (1873-1954) is best known in the United States for such classic novels as Gigi and Cheri, which were made into popular movies, but she was a prolific author. This meticulously translated collection offers some of her best fiction, personal essays, articles, and talks, all appearing in English for the first time. They cover an enormous array of topics from French wines and perfumes to her friendships with Marcel Proust and Maurice Chevalier to uncanny insight into the curious habits of cats and dogs. Selections from an advice column that Colette wrote for the French women's magazine Marie Claire are also included, and her savvy suggestions for the lovelorn stand the test of time. Moving articles written during the two world wars, along with her memories of being an actor and playwright, reveal facets of her writing that are less often celebrated. The first new work by Colette to appear in English in half a century, it will delight devoted fans and new readers alike.

Zack Rogow is the author, editor, or translator of twenty books or plays. His seventh book of poems, My Mother and the Ceiling Dancers, was published by Kattywompus Press. He is the editor of an anthology of poetry of the U.S.A., The Face of Poetry, from University of California Press. Currently he teaches in the low-residency MFA in writing program at the University of Alaska Anchorage and serves as poetry editor of Catamaran Literary Reader.

Renée Morel is a translator and an instructor in French and linguistics at City College of San Francisco. She lectures throughout the Bay Area on French culture, art, and civilization, from the Gauls to de Gaulle.

Joshua Gressel's Embracing Envy
Green Apple Books, Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple in welcoming local author, Joshua Gressel, as we celebrate the release of his first book, Embracing Envy, on January 11, 2015 at 7pm in the Granny Smith Room. Envy is a universal emotion, yet people are very reluctant to confess their envy of another. In Embracing Envy, Josh Gressel suggests it is our shame at admitting we feel inferior to another person that keeps envy so hidden. Through interviews with everyday people, reviews of mainstream psychological research, and lessons from wisdom literature, this book delves into how envy can be seen as meaningful and useful in our daily lives.

Sandra Lim and Randall Mann: A Night of Poetry
Green Apple Books, Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 7pm
Please join Green Apple in welcoming local poets Sandra Lim and Randall Mann as we celebrate the release of Lim's award winning book of poetry, The Wilderness on January 13th, 2015 at 7pm in the Granny Smith Room. Facebook RSVP requested, but not required. Sandra Lim, the winner of the 2013 Barnard Women Poets Prize, is the author of a previous volume, Loveliest Grotesque.

From the winner of the 2013 Barnard Women Poets Prize, chosen by Louise Glück, a daring and exuberant new collection​, The Wilderness​. Moving through myths of the American landscape, the fatalism of American Puritanism, family history, New England winters, aesthetic theory, and the suavities and anxieties of contemporary life, the poems in this astonishing collection ultimately speak about the individual soul’s struggle with its own meaning. Randall Mann is the author of two previous poetry collections, Breakfast with Thom Gunn and Complaint in the garden. His poems and prose appear in The Kenyon Review, The Paris Review, Poetry, Salmagundi, and The Washington Post. He lives in San Francisco. His book of poetry, Straight razor, consists of bawdy yet elegant poems depicting the debaucheries and traumas of growing up amid San Francisco's gay scene.
