World Book Night Book Pick-up Party 

When: Mon., April 16, 6-9 p.m. 2012

Here's a new holiday to get behind: World Book Night -- first celebrated last year in the UK and coming to the US on April 23 -- aims to "spread love of reading and books" by providing preregistered "givers" with one of thirty paperback titles, to distribute as they see fit in their communities. Our very own Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland) is an official book pickup site, and hosts a party on Monday, Apr. 16, in honor of the occasion. Givers can stop by and grab their boxes of books, but all are invited to take part in door prizes, music, and pie, according to Diesel events coordinator John Peck. "It's pretty amazing to get to be a part of this," he said. Indeed. 6 p.m., free. 510-653-9965 or
