Visiting superstars: Blanco, Korn, Greenlaw, Bohjalian, Chiasson. April 15th, 2014

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
Boston Strong: The Poem to Benefit the One Fund Boston.


 
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!
