Start: 7:00 pm
Tuesday December 4th, 2012. 7 p.m. Join us as friend of the store Glenn Currie presents his newest novel, Surviving Seventh Grade, a very humorous sequel to A Boy's First Diary. Whether it is called junior high or middle school, the world changes as boys move from the cloistered classrooms of grade school, to a larger, more complex society, and deal with the hormonal earthquakes of puberty. In Surviving Seventh Grade, by Glenn K. Currie provides a humorous and informative look at this environment from the viewpoint of a thirteen-year-old boy, just in time for the holidays. The book is set in the 1950’s, which allows readers to focus on life without the complications of smart phones, video games and even computers. If you grew up in the 50's or 60's, this book will have you in stitches as you identify each character as someone from your childhood!  Glenn K. Currie’s previous young adult book, A Boy’s First Diary (2007), looked at life in the fourth and fifth grades, and was met with broad critical acclaim. It was “strongly recommended” by the Midwest Book Review.  Writers Digest wrote “I loved this collection”. And, among a large number of letters from grade school students, was this thoughtful critique from Jeffrey, age 10, “You are the greatest writer in the world”.  Can't make the event?

Meet sportswriter Bob Ryan on Tuesday, Ellen Stimson (author of Mud Season) on Thursday! Monday, October 27th, 2014


Meet Bob Ryan!
 One of the finest sportwriters and journalists of his or any generation, Bob Ryan is the voice of New England sports. His new memoir, Scribe, has just hit the shelves, and he is coming to Concord to talk about it--about his life in sports. Don't miss this chance to meet Bob Ryan! (And even if sports aren't your thing--don't forget, Christmas is coming!) Bob will be joining us at 7 PM, Tuesday, October 28. Read more about him in this Concord Monitor article.
 
Meet Ellen Stimson, author of Mud Season
 Mud Season was one of bestsellers last year, and if you liked that, you'll love Ellen's new book, Good Grief!  ,  the continuing adventures of her family in the wilds of Vermont.  One hesitates to call any book "the quintessential New England book," but this has to be among the finalists. Meet Ellen on Thursday, October 30, at 7 PM.

 
Strongest week of the year for new releases
A lot of important books hit the shelves tomorrow (Tuesday)--important because they're ground-breaking, important because they're entertaining, important because they're artfully written--or all of the above. Here are just a few examples. Click the cover art for more details.  And come have a look tomorrow!
