 Gibson's Book Club reads The Last Policeman

Monday, October 6, 7 PM, meeting in the Cafe

Concord Reads, the community-wide project sponsored by the Concord Public Library Foundation, has chosen this vividly imagined work of "pre-apocalyptic" fiction for 2014. The asteroid is about to hit, and you're a Concord policeman. Yes, this Concord. How do you handle it when you're supposed to be solving a murder but an asteroid is about to wipe out all life on earth?  ... Bookmark this link to learn more about the programming planned around the book this fall.

Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you.

Most of these titles are in paperback, or should be by the time we'll read them, and they will all be discounted 25% from the publisher's price for the following year, whether you join us for meetings or not.

All meetings unless otherwise noted are on the first Monday of the month, and begin at 7:00, to give you time to have dinner and relax a bit first. Parking is free in the Capitol Commons garage and on the street, after 5 p.m...

Not our event, but we'll be selling books at the Capitol Center for the Arts for this event!

Join Christopher Kimball in an informative and lively evening exploring PBS Television’s America’s Test Kitchen. The audience will get an insider’s view of the show, including the process of how the equipment testings, food tastings, and science experiments take place. Find out what it’s really like to work at and host one of the most popular food programs airing today. In this multi-media presentation, you’ll get to meet some colorful personalities via video and audio, such as competitive food eaters, Mrs. Patmore from Downton Abbey, vengeful cheese makers, and Mary Roach, who spent years investigating the inner workings of the digestive tract. Fans will also have a chance to ask questions, during a Q & A with Christopher.

Christopher Kimball is the founder & editor of Cook’s Illustrated and host of America’s Test Kitchen. CooksIllustrated.com receives close to 20 million visitors per year, and Cook’s Illustrated The Science of Good Cooking is a NY Times bestseller. America’s Test Kitchen is one of the strongest rated cooking shows on television, beating the ratings of the top shows on Food Network. VIP tickets are available that include a post-show meet and greet and a signed copy of The America’s Test Kitchen Cooking School Cookbook.

10 - 11, PSNH Board Meeting, meeting in the True Brew Cafe

11 - 1 Poetry readings from The Widows' Handbook: Poetric Reflections on Grief and Survival and other readings of grief and loss by NH poets.

Free and open to the public, all are welcome!

The Widows’ Handbook is the first anthology of poems by contemporary widows, many of whom have written their way out of solitude and despair, distilling their strongest feelings into poetry or memoir. This stirring collection celebrates the strategies widows learn and the resources they muster to deal with people, living space, possessions, social life, and especially themselves, once shock has turned to the realization that nothing will ever be the same. As Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says in her foreword, losing one s partner is a loss like no other.

Bookstore events for the rest of September

Tuesday, Sept. 23, 6 PM      Local author and teacher Bishop O'Connell joins us to present his new fantasy novel, The Stolen, in which faeries not only kidnap mortal children but have traded in their ancient swords and horses for modern guns and sports cars. (Note time)
Thursday, Sept. 25, 7 PM     Mike Morin, a legendary figure in New Hampshire radio history, tells us all about his over four decades on the air in Fifty Shades of Radio.  Collected from his humor columns in the Nashua Telegraph, these stories include receiving death threats and naked pictures from elderly women (we hope not in the same envelope), being buried alive, and many more. 
WATCH for our email next week that will be dedicated to programs and events in October of special interest to BOOK CLUBS, TEACHERS, and FOLKS WHO READ TOO MANY BOOKS.
