  Wednesday February 20th, 2013, 7 p.m.  The Poetry Society of New Hampshire meets at Gibson's Bookstore on the third Wednesday of every month. Our headliners this month are Dudley Laufman and Liz Jones. An open mic follows their readings (arrive early to ensure a spot on the sign-up sheet). All are welcome, newcomers are encouraged!  Dudley Laufman was raised in the Boston area. He went to agricultural school but have spent most of my time as a musician.  He lives with Jacqueline on the edge of the woods in Canterbury, NH, where they earn our money by playing fiddles for dancing. In 2009 Dudley was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship. He is a recipient of the New Hampshire GOVERNOR'S AWARD IN THE ARTS Lifetime Achievement Folk Heritage Award for 2001. He has been nominated for a Pushcart Award, and is the subject of a documentary film THE OTHER WAY BACK. Dudley has published five trade edition books of poems: AN ORCHARD & A GARDEN (William Bauhan Press 1974), MOUTH MUSIC (Wind in the Timothy Press 2001), THE STONEMAN (Shaker Village Inc. 2005), WALKING STICKS (2007), SHE PLUMB NED, SHE MORE’N PLUMB, (20ll).(Beech River Books), and the chapbooks: SMOKE SCREEN and BEHIND THE BEAT  (Pudding House 2004, 2008), LEFT EYE (2012) Finishing Line Press, as well as numerous other pamphlets, chapbooks and broadsides.

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!
