Gibson's Book Club discusses The Hare with Amber Eyes, by Edmund de Waal

Monday, March 4, 7 PM

A family history that has been compared to Nabokov's Speak, Memory--the gold standard--The Hare with Amber Eyes is
the history of a family and of a culture, sparked by the author's
encounter with one odd and artful collection of ceramic miniatures.

Free and open to the public. All are welcome, newcomers are encouraged!

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
