The Diesel Readers Book Group - Stay With Me

East Bay Booksellers invites you to The Diesel Readers Book Group's discussion of The Overstory by Richard Powers, on Monday July 22nd at 7pm.

9780393356687.jpg

Brad Says: The short version of my recomendation is this: it's the novelization of The Hidden Life of Trees. But even that doesn't quite do it justice. Powers' book is profound in its understanding of the science of (and the communication between) trees, but also in its appreciation of the links between the human and non-human. His most beautiful sentences are also the most devestating, and he uses these links to explore the idea that while death is certainly an end, it is not necessarily the one we imagine. Look to the trees, and we'll see that time is never quite done with us. In this vein, a character elaborates late in the novel, "What you make from a tree should be at least as miraculous as what you cut down." Plainly put: The Overstory is perhaps as close to such a miracle as we currently deserve.

 ** The Diesel Readers is an ongoing group, and is open to all. **

Bastille Day, formally called La Fête Nationale ("The National Celebration"), is celebrated every July 14 in France to commemorate the storming of the Bastille, the infamous prison fortress. Like Independence Day in the United States, Bastille Day memorializes the start of a political revolution aimed at replacing an absolute monarchy with a constitutional government.

Author Event: Jasmine Guillory - The Wedding Party

Jasmine.jpg

EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS is excited to welcome our friend Jasmine Guillory to celebrate the publication of her third novel, The Wedding Party, on Monday, July 15th at 7pm.

The new exhilarating romance from The New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal, a Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick!
 
Maddie and Theo have two things in common:

1. Alexa is their best friend
2. They hate each other

After an "oops, we made a mistake" night together, neither one can stop thinking about the other. With Alexa's wedding rapidly approaching, Maddie and Theo both share bridal party responsibilities that require more interaction with each other than they're comfortable with. Underneath the sharp barbs they toss at each other is a simmering attraction that won't fade. It builds until they find themselves sneaking off together to release some tension when Alexa isn't looking, agreeing they would end it once the wedding is over. When it’s suddenly pushed up and they only have a few months left of secret rendezvouses, they find themselves regretting that the end is near. Two people this different can’t possibly have a connection other than the purely physical, right?

But as with any engagement with a nemesis, there are unspoken rules that must be abided by. First and foremost, don't fall in love.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jasmine Guillory is a lawyer, a graduate of Wellesley College and Stanford Law School, and a Bay Area native who lives in Oakland, California. She has been published in The Toast and The Hairpin, has towering stacks of books in her living room, a cake for every occasion, and upwards of fifty lipsticks.

Author Event: Obi Kaufmann - The State of Water

EAST BAY BOOKSELLERS welcomes Obi Kaufmann to discuss his new new book The State of Water: Understanding Californi'as Most Precious Resource

9781597144698.jpg

Obi Kaufmann, author of the best-selling California Field Atlas, turns his artful yet analytical attention to the Golden State's single most complex and controversial resource: water. In this new book, full-color maps unravel the braided knot of California's water infrastructure and ecosystems, exposing a history of unlimited growth in spite of finite natural resources--a history that has led to its current precarious circumstances. Yet this built world depends upon the biosphere, and in The State of Water Kaufmann argues that environmental conservation and restoration efforts are necessary not only for ethical reasons but also as a matter of human survival. Offering nine perspectives to illustrate the most pressing challenges facing California's water infrastructure, from dams to species revitalization, Kaufmann reveals pragmatic yet inspiring solutions to how water in the West can continue to support agriculture, municipalities, and the environment. Interspersed throughout with trail paintings of animals that might yet survive under a caring and careful water ethic, Kaufmann shows how California can usher in a new era of responsible water conservation, and--perhaps most importantly--how we may do so together.
