** Ticketholders for the (postponed) October 27th event will be honored for the new date. Thank you. **

Writers in the Spotlight Series. Dennis Lehane's novels include the New York Times bestsellers The Given Day; Gone, Baby, Gone; Mystic River; Shutter Island; and Prayers for Rain.

Combining edgy suspense and the vivid period detail that made The Given Day a smashing success, award-winning, bestselling author Dennis Lehane delivers a masterful epic of Prohibition-era America told through the story of a charismatic young gangster on his rise through the glitz and the violence of the Roaring 20s in his latest work, Live by Night.

This is a ticketed event (tickets go on sale on Monday, June 25th, at 11 a.m.). Tickets may be purchased through the Capitol Center for the Arts.

Tickets will be $28.50, which includes a copy of Live by Night (available for pick up at Gibson's Bookstore beginning on October 2)

Each ticket buyer may also purchase, in addition to but not in place of their $28.50  ticket, up to six tickets at $6 each (which do not come with books) for their family or group members.

Richard Blanco

 
Meet Richard Blanco!
The marvelous poet who was chosen to read at President Obama's 2012 inauguration will be in Concord on Wed., April 16, at 7 PM, at the Concord Public Library. We'll be there selling his books, including his memoir, For All of Us, One Today, and his many volumes of poetry, like

Why We Make Things
Meet Peter Korn!
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.
 
Chris Bohjalian
 
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 Girls for 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!
Chris Bohjalian's excellent new novel, Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands, will be on our shelves on July 8. Reserve your copy today!
