Brentwood - Diane Leslie's Book Group with Author discusses Ramona Ausubel's "No One Is Here Except All of Us"
Start: 5:00 pm
Diane Leslie's Book Group with Author meets to discuss Ramona Ausubel's latest novel, No One Is Here Except All of Us, on Tuesday, July 17th at 5pm. The best part? Ramona Ausubel will be joining in the discussion! In 1939, the families in a remote Jewish village in Romania feel the war close in on them. Their tribe has moved and escaped for thousands of years - across oceans, deserts, and mountains - but now there is nowhere else to go. At the suggestion of an eleven-year-old girl and a mysterious stranger who has washed up on the riverbank, the villagers decide to reinvent the world by denying any relationship with the known and starting over from scratch. There is a $20 fee for this event.
Start: 7:00 pm
Diesel, A Bookstore in Oakland welcomes The Seated Diesels back to the store to discuss Chronic City by Jonathan Lethem on Tuesday, July 17th at 7pm.The acclaimed author of Motherless Brooklyn and The Fortress of Solitude returns with a roar with this gorgeous, searing portrayal of Manhattanites wrapped in their own delusions, desires, and lies. Like Manhattan itself, Lethem's book is beautiful and tawdry, devastating and antic, a stand-in for the whole world and a place utterly unique.This event is free and all are welcome and encouraged to attend!
