Monday, Sept. 9, 7 PM
We're starting off with a bang, with one of our best-selling novels over the past year and one that has just come out in paperback. Barbara Kingsolver is a book club favorite across the nation--come find out why!
This event is free and open to the public, all are welcome, newcomers are encouraged!
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...
True Brew Cafe, a branch of True Brew Barista, enjoys space in our bookstore. They serve delicious coffee, tea, sandwiches, crepes, and much more. Now also with beer and wine! Have a real bookstore cafe experience.

(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

have a look tomorrow!
