 Gibson's Book Club reads The Last Policeman

Monday, October 6, 7 PM, meeting in the Cafe

Concord Reads, the community-wide project sponsored by the Concord Public Library Foundation, has chosen this vividly imagined work of "pre-apocalyptic" fiction for 2014. The asteroid is about to hit, and you're a Concord policeman. Yes, this Concord. How do you handle it when you're supposed to be solving a murder but an asteroid is about to wipe out all life on earth?  ... Bookmark this link to learn more about the programming planned around the book this fall.

Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.

Most of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.

All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 7:00, to give you time to have dinner and relax a bit first. Parking is free in the Capitol Commons garage and on the street, after 5 p.m...

Gibson's wins an award; great new books this week; event reminders. September 9th, 2014
In this newsletter: upcoming events, this week's fantastic new releases, and Gibson's wins a prestigious industry award.
September Events at Gibson's
We have an excellent line-up of author events this month.
 Thursday, Sept. 11, 4 PM     Loren Long, author of Otis -- the most beloved tractor in all of children's literature! -- visits to share his new picture book, Otis and the Scarecrow.  Loren Long always hits the NYT bestseller list, with good reason--his books are fantastic.
Friday, Sept. 12, 7 PM        

Tad Pfeffer gives a talk about the history of summer homes in Northern New England. His book, perfect for gift-giving, is sumptuously produced by publisher David R. Godine.
New releases!
Just look at these marvelous books that we have for you this week. Two of my favorite novels for the fall-- Station Eleven and The Children Act--and a children's book by Keith Richards, whose memoir Life kept me up until 4 in the morning one night a few years ago.  Please come buy them and read them and come in and talk with me about them. I thought they were fantastic. (Ask for Michael)
Later in September:
Tuesday, Sept. 16, 7 PM      John Scalzi, Hugo Award-winning author of Redshirts and many other classic SF novels, and prominent citizen of the blogosphere, makes his first trip to Concord, to promote his new novel, Lock In.  This is a big deal, folks, though the author might shake his head to hear us say it.
Tuesday, Sept. 23, 6 PM      Local author and teacher Bishop O'Connell joins us to present his new fantasy novel, The Stolen, in which faeries not only kidnap mortal children but have traded in their ancient swords and horses for modern guns and sports cars. (Note time)

Thursday, Sept. 25, 7 PM     Mike Morin, a legendary figure in New Hampshire radio history, tells us all about his over four decades on the air in Fifty Shades of Radio.  Collected from his humor columns in the Nashua Telegraph, these stories include receiving death threats and naked pictures from elderly women (we hope not in the same envelope), being buried alive, and many more.

...and there's more....
On Wednesday, Sept. 17, at 7 PM, we host the monthly meeting of the NH Poetry Society. Headliners will be S Stephanie and Mark DeCarteret, and their readings will be followed by an open mic event. All are welcome! Come to listen, come to read.
Every Tuesday and Saturday, at 10 AM, we host a children's storytime, and every Friday, at 10:30, we have lapsit storytime for the younger kids. 
The 2014 Independent Spirit Award
Each year, the group called the Book Publishers Representatives of New England (BPRNE) names one bookstore from the six New England states to be the winner of that year's Independent Spirit Award.  Past winners have included Harvard Bookstore, Brookline Booksmith, Northshire, Porter Square, Bank Square in Mystic, Toadstool, and other iconic New England Bookstores.  
The reps have chosen us to be the winner for 2014, and we could not be more honored or more thrilled. We have a lot of people to thank for this award, but mostly we would like to thank you, the readers of New Hampshire, who responded so positively to our bold expansion and made our dream of becoming a better bookstore a reality. Thank you!
