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.

Publishers share all the best books on Friday; meet Archer Mayor on Saturday! October 14th, 2014

 
Meet the publishers! An event for book clubs and bookish people
On Friday, October 17, starting at 6 PM, some of our favorite reps will be here to discuss what's new and what's hot for book clubs and for everyone who just loves a good read. Whether you're currently a member of a book club or just think you read enough to be in one, this is a great event for you. Pictured above and expected to attend: John Muse from Simon & Schuster, Lesley Vasilio from Penguin Random House, and Ellen Pyle from Macmillan. Also scheduled to appear is Anne DeCourcey (below)from HarperCollins. We'll have refreshments and great giveaways. Everyone is welcome!

Surprise author visit!
We had thought that scheduling conflicts would keep Vermont mystery writer Archer Mayor (below, right) from visiting Gibson's this fall, but as luck would have it, he's free this Saturday afternoon from 1:30 to 2:30 and he will be here in the store!  Drop by to have a copy of his new book signed and to shoot the breeze for a while. ...Note: we're not sure if he's bringing that chain saw, so just be nice.


Some big books for fall
Dan Chartrand from Water Street and I visited Laura Knoy last week to talk about some of the best books for fall. If you missed the show, you can find our lists and listen to the broadcast here.  ... Here's a photo in which I was making some point or other--who knows, really--much to the apparent amusement of Dan.

And that's it for now! Thank you for reading!
For our full events schedule go to www.gibsonsbookstore.com.  And why not follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and (dare we say it? are we ready?) Tumblr.
