Book launch: 'The Nepal Chronicles: Marriage, Mountains and Momos in the Highest Place on Earth' with Dan Szczesny

07/10/2014 7:00 pm

Join us for the launch party of local author and hiker Dan Szczesny as he presents his newest work, The Nepal Chronicles: Marriage, Mountains and Momos in the Highest Place on Earth.

When travel writer Dan Szczesny and his wife, Meenakshi, traveled to Nepal to marry in Kathmandu and trek to Everest Base Camp, they knew the journey would be difficult. What they didn’t realize was how life­changing their time in the land of mountains would be. From the chaos of Kathmandu’s super­charged streets to the tranquil but challenging trails of the Himalayas, his book of the journey, The Nepal Chronicles, is a deeply felt exploration of the culture and history of one of the world’s most complex places, and a meditation on the author’s own personal journey into a new family and relationship unlike any he’s ever experienced.

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!
