 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...

Bookstore events for the rest of September

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. 
WATCH for our email next week that will be dedicated to programs and events in October of special interest to BOOK CLUBS, TEACHERS, and FOLKS WHO READ TOO MANY BOOKS.
