"The Mindful Carnivore: A Vegetarian's Hunt for Sustenance"

Thursday February 16th, 2012, 7pm

The Mindful Carnivore: A Vegetarian's Hunt for Sustenance with VT author Tovar Cerulli

An unlikely journey from vegan to hunter.
A thoughtful meditation on the ethics and ecology of food.
An adventurous quest for dinner.

Join us for a conversation with Vermont author Tovar Cerulli, as he takes us from his vegan years to his more recent years as a thoughtful hunter and consumer of meat. In this deeply personal narrative, Cerulli explores our nutritional connections with the larger-than-human world. An interesting topic for the vegan and philosophical scenes!

"A personal tale of how one man comes to terms with the meat on his plate and a historical look at humanity's connection to animals. The Mindful Carnivore delivers new insight in the too often simplistic vegetarian versus carnivore argument." Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer

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!
