Gibson's Book Group reads Flight Behavior, by Barbara Kingsolver
09/09/2013 7:00 pm
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...
Wednesday, May 7th, 2014, 7 PM, join us for a very special book club as New York Times best-selling author Chris Bohjalian leads the Gibson's Book Club discussion of his novel The Sandcastle Girls! Fear not, you need not have read this novel to join in the discussion, or enjoy Chris's presentation on his research in to the Armenian Genocide. Chris will be happy to take questions on all of his novels! All are welcome, newcomers are encouraged.
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.
One of the most interesting books of this or any season, Why We Make Things is
both a memoir and a meditation on the nature of creativity. The book
itself was sumptuously produced by one of the last true craftsmen in
publishing, David Godine. Join us at the League of NH Craftsmen on Thursday, April 17, at 5:30 PM, to hear the author and to ask him questions--and maybe to pick up an early Father's Day present.
A rare local appearance by Chris Bohjalian!
Wed., May 7, at 7 PM
When Chris learned that our in-store book group had chosen his novel The Sandcastle Girlsfor
May, he required little convincing to agree to come talk about
it. Armenian history is very important to him. You don't have to have
read the novel to attend. Come hear Chris talk about this important
topic, and about his many other novels as well. Open to all fans of
Chris Bohjalian and students of history!
