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.
Just added! Hedrick Smith, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of Who Stole the American Dream?, will be in the bookstore from 4:15-5:15 PM tomorrow,Wednesday, January 21.
He's in the state to help get money out of politics and inspire regular
folks to get in. We're hosting him right after he appears at the Capitol Center. Please join us for a fascinating conversation and booksigning.
This month's meeting of the Poetry Society of New Hampshire is open to all and this month it is purely open mic. Do you have a poem in your pocket? Would you like to nominate a new state poem? Whatever your pleasure, come on down, to read or just to listen. That's Wed., Jan. 21, at 7 PM.
(By the way, we don't think NH should have a "state poem" unless it's by Robert Frost, and honestly not even then.)
Thursday, Jan. 22, 7 PM
One man, two lives. Author Larry Duberstein joins us to present Five Bullets, a powerful story of humanity and inhumanity in this tale of war, survival and healing.
"...Larry Duberstein’s Five Bullets offers a heartrending examination of the Holocaust and its aftermath...Haunting as it is compelling, Five Bullets offers an engaging, intelligent meditation on memory, hope, and survival.” ~Marc Schuster, Small Press Reviews
