 Gibson's Book Club discusses and does a dramatic reading of Othello, by William Shakespeare

Monday, February 2, at 7 PM

Each February, our book club not only discusses but reads aloud a play by the immortal Bard. We find that our understanding improves through performance. It's a lot of fun. We skip the exposition so we can get out at a normal time, and we all take turns reading the juicy bits so no one feels left out.

This year we're reading Shakespeare's great tale of jealousy, deceit, and murder, Othello.

Our book club reads the Folger edition, which is inexpensive and has excellent notes. Please join us!

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...

Weekly newsletter, with add-on Hedrick Smith event! January 20th, 2015

Just added!
Hedrick Smith, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of Who Stole the American Dream?, will be in the bookstore from 4:15-5:15 PM tomorrow, Wednesday, January 21. He's in the state to help get money out of politics and inspire regular folks to get in.  We're hosting him right after he appears at the Capitol Center.  Please join us for a fascinating conversation and booksigning.
Open microphone!
This month's meeting of the Poetry Society of New Hampshire is open to all and this month it is purely open mic. Do you have a poem in your pocket? Would you like to nominate a new state poem? Whatever your pleasure, come on down, to read or just to listen. That's Wed., Jan. 21, at 7 PM.
(By the way, we don't think NH should have a "state poem" unless it's by Robert Frost, and honestly not even then.)

One man, two lives. Author Larry Duberstein joins us to present Five Bullets, a powerful story of humanity and inhumanity in this tale of war, survival and healing.
"...Larry Duberstein’s Five Bullets offers a heartrending examination of the Holocaust and its aftermath...Haunting as it is compelling, Five Bullets offers an engaging, intelligent meditation on memory, hope, and survival.” ~Marc Schuster, Small Press Reviews
