"Following Atticus", with Tom Ryan and Atticus (and possibly Will)

Thursday September 6th, 2012, at 7 p.m.

Last fall, a miniature schnauzer (Atticus M. Finch) and his owner hiked their way into the hearts of New Englanders. A local phenomenon, Following Atticus has been the constant author-event request among our customers, and we are pleased to finally be able to oblige.

Tom Ryan will join us in the store for an evening of stories and Q&A, followed by a signing. Atticus will be there (barring unforeseeable complications), and Will as well. Because other dogs being present make the event distracting and stressful for our canine stars, we ask that you leave your own four-legged friends at home.

After a close friend died of cancer, middle-aged, overweight, acrophobic newspaperman Tom Ryan decided to pay tribute to her in a most unorthodox manner. Ryan and his friend, miniature schnauzer Atticus M. Finch, would attempt to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshire's four thousand- foot peaks twice in one winter while raising money for charity.

Stefany Shaheen & Ric Carey visit this week; new policy on hardcover fiction

Joining us this week at Gibsons are Ric Carey and Stefany Shaheen.
No one who was of age on that day in 1997 can forget the horror and disbelief they felt when they learned that the small community of Colebrook, NH had been overtaken by unspeakable violence and tragedy. Now, for the first time, that story has been told, by New Hampshire's own Ric Carey. Ric teaches at SNHU and is also the author of Against the Tide: The Fate of New England Fishermen.
When her oldest daughter, eight-year-old Elle (pronounced "Ellie"), was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, Stefany Shaheen (daughter of NH Senator Jeanne Shaheen) confronted a terrifying new reality: Without constant round-the-clock monitoring and treatment, Elle could face grim consequences, even death. So type-A mom Stefany committed herself to learning everything she could about managing her daughter's unpredictable and life-threatening condition, all while trying to keep a sense of normalcy for the sake of her four children. After numerous hospital visits, a seizure, and various treatments -- including an artificial pancreas trial -- Elle and Stefany finally found relief in an adorable, four-legged companion....
New fiction this week! These books will be on our front tables tomorrow morning.
Policy change regarding hardcover fiction
For several years now, we've offered everyday discounts of 20% on all hardcover adult fiction, including mystery and science fiction.  And, at the same time, we've also offered a generous and extremely popular frequent buyer program, in which customers can easily qualify for 20% discounts to be applied on books and other merchandise throughout the store when they chose to do so. 
Our analysis shows we can't continue to offer both the everyday discounts and the frequent buyer program, so we'll be discontinuing automatic 20% discounts on hardcover fiction as of Monday, October 5. Come in between now and then and stock up on new releases.
Or, as always, save up your frequent buyer cards --that program isn't going anywhere!--and use them to get 20% off on whatever you choose, whenever you choose it.
Thank you for your support!
