Oakland: Diesel and the Old School

When I was a kid, Diesel Books in Oakland was a bowling alley. It boasted 89 lanes. Once inside, you'd see lanes numbered, 82 to 89. Now, it's a gorgeous independent bookstore (we're only hitting indies on the tour). We had a great reading, got an impromptu poetry reading from Mike Molina that rocked. Got to see lots of old friends. Including my old high school buddy Zac Unger. --Anna
