Combining edgy suspense and the vivid period detail that made The Given Day a smashing success, award-winning, bestselling author Dennis Lehane delivers a masterful epic of Prohibition-era America told through the story of a charismatic young gangster on his rise through the glitz and the violence of the Roaring 20s in his latest work, Live by Night.

Tickets will be $28.50, which includes a copy of Live by Night (available for pick up at Gibson's Bookstore beginning on October 2) Each ticket buyer may also purchase, in addition to but not in place of their $28.50  ticket, up to six tickets at $6 each (which do not come with books) for their family or group members.

Rebecca Makkai on Wednesday - Waldo, found! on Thursday. July 30th, 2014

 Wednesday, July 30, 7 PM
Rebecca Makkai joins us to present her new novel, The Hundred-Year House--a dazzlingly original, mordantly witty novel about the secrets of an old-money family and their turn-of-the-century estate, Laurelfield. We hope you'll remember Rebecca as the author of one of our best sellers over the last few years, The Borrower, in which Lucy Hull, a children’s librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home.
"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as The Borrower." —Richard Russo
