10 - 11, PSNH Board Meeting, meeting in the True Brew Cafe

11 - 1 Poetry readings from The Widows' Handbook: Poetric Reflections on Grief and Survival and other readings of grief and loss by NH poets.

Free and open to the public, all are welcome!

The Widows’ Handbook is the first anthology of poems by contemporary widows, many of whom have written their way out of solitude and despair, distilling their strongest feelings into poetry or memoir. This stirring collection celebrates the strategies widows learn and the resources they muster to deal with people, living space, possessions, social life, and especially themselves, once shock has turned to the realization that nothing will ever be the same. As Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says in her foreword, losing one s partner is a loss like no other.

 Gibson's Book Club reads Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Monday, November 3, 7 PM, meeting in the Cafe



One of "The""New York Times"'s Ten Best Books of the Year, Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction, An NPR "Great Reads" Book, a "Chicago Tribune" Best Book, a "Washington Post "Notable Book, a "Seattle Times "Best Book, an "Entertainment Weekly" Top Fiction Book, a "Newsday "Top 10 Book, and a "Goodreads "Best of the Year pick.

A powerful, tender story of race and identity by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Half of a Yellow Sun.

Ifemelu and Obinze are young and in love when they depart military-ruled Nigeria for the West. Beautiful, self-assured Ifemelu heads for America, where despite her academic success, she is forced to grapple with what it means to be black for the first time. Quiet, thoughtful Obinze had hoped to join her, but with post-9/11 America closed to him, he instead plunges into a dangerous, undocumented life in London. Fifteen years later, they reunite in a newly democratic Nigeria, and reignite their passion--for each other and for their homeland.

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...

Publishers share all the best books on Friday; meet Archer Mayor on Saturday! October 14th, 2014

 
Meet the publishers! An event for book clubs and bookish people
On Friday, October 17, starting at 6 PM, some of our favorite reps will be here to discuss what's new and what's hot for book clubs and for everyone who just loves a good read. Whether you're currently a member of a book club or just think you read enough to be in one, this is a great event for you. Pictured above and expected to attend: John Muse from Simon & Schuster, Lesley Vasilio from Penguin Random House, and Ellen Pyle from Macmillan. Also scheduled to appear is Anne DeCourcey (below)from HarperCollins. We'll have refreshments and great giveaways. Everyone is welcome!

Surprise author visit!
We had thought that scheduling conflicts would keep Vermont mystery writer Archer Mayor (below, right) from visiting Gibson's this fall, but as luck would have it, he's free this Saturday afternoon from 1:30 to 2:30 and he will be here in the store!  Drop by to have a copy of his new book signed and to shoot the breeze for a while. ...Note: we're not sure if he's bringing that chain saw, so just be nice.


Some big books for fall
Dan Chartrand from Water Street and I visited Laura Knoy last week to talk about some of the best books for fall. If you missed the show, you can find our lists and listen to the broadcast here.  ... Here's a photo in which I was making some point or other--who knows, really--much to the apparent amusement of Dan.

And that's it for now! Thank you for reading!
