Oakland - Greil Marcus discusses "A New Literary History of America"

Diesel Oakland Events


Greil Marcus DieselDiesel, A Bookstore in Oakland is very excited to welcome Greil Marcus to the store on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 7pm to discuss and sign A New Literary History of America which, in more than two hundred original essays, brings together the nation’s many voices. From the first conception of a New World in the sixteenth century to the latest re-envisioning of that world in cartoons, television, science fiction, and hip hop, the book gives us a new, kaleidoscopic view of what “Made in America” means.

Also contributing to the discussion will be Gary Kamiya and Richard Candida Smith.


For more information, please check out the excellent website for the book.
