Gibson's is always pleased to support local authors! Join us as we celebrate Lakes Region author Abi Maxwell's debut novel, Lake People.

Lake People is a haunting, luminous debut novel set in a small New Hampshire town: the story of the crisscrossing of lives, within and without family, and of one woman, given up for adoption as a baby, searching for the truth about her life.

Abi Maxwell was born and raised in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire, where she currently lives. She studied fiction writing at the University of Montana, and now works as an assistant librarian at the Gilford Public Library.

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!
