Terry Brooks, 'Witch Wraith: The Dark Legend of Shannara'

07/27/2013 2:00 pm

This is a ticketed event (see details below) that will be held next door at Red River Theatres.

Terry Brooks is practically fantasy royalty, and we're honored to be graced with his visit for the second time! Terry Brooks published his first novel, The Sword of Shannara, in 1977. It was a New York Times bestseller for more than six months. He has published twenty-five New York Times bestsellers since.

For the first time in his career, Terry will be publishing a book every six months from the start to end of this series: here is the epic conclusion in a brand-new fantasy trilogy in the New York Times bestselling Shannara universe!

Long ago, many dangerous creatures were locked behind a magical barrier, bringing peace and prosperity to the land. But now those barriers are eroding, and generations of embittered prisoners are about to escape. War seems inevitable...unless a few brave souls can stem the tide. Now, our heroes must muster the last ounces of their courage as events unfold fast and furiously. From riveting start to cliffhanger ending, this is an epic for the ages!

This event will be offsite because our moving date is still uncertain (visit our new and larger space at 45 South Main Street in August!), and we want Mr. Brooks’s many fans to enjoy meeting him and to hear him read in absolute comfort. We have to charge a small ticket price to pay for the venue. A $5 ticket can be yours automatically if you preorder Terry Brooks’s new book, Witch Wraith, below, or you can buy a $5 ticket separately. Your ticket can be used as a $5 coupon towards any purchase at the event or at Gibson's Bookstore. See below for further details.

Busiest week of the year! Bill Littlefield, Ernie Hebert, Tomie dePaola, all at Gibson's. November 17th, 2014

What a week at Gibson's!
This may be our busiest week of the year for events. Read on...
 
Tuesday, Nov. 18, 7 PM  Bill Littlefield! If you're up early enough on Saturday, you may (as we do) reward yourselves with the fantastic sports show Only a Game, hosted by Bill Littlefield, heard on WBUR and on our own NHPR. Bill has written and collected some whimsical light verse, all on the subject of sports. Join us as he shares his poems with a Concord audience! He'll be here on Nov. 18. Come early to get a good seat! His signed book will be a wonderful Christmas present for the sports nuts on your list.
Friday, Nov. 21, 7 PM   Ernie Hebert now concludes the Darby Chronicles, which he began 35 years ago with The Dogs of March.
"Ernie Hebert's novels don't just capture New England; they've become a part of it...and his latest is a spectacular addition to an already impressive canon."—Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Vanishing Acts
Part Falstaff, part King Lear, but all American, Howard Elman was a fifty-something workingman when he burst onto the literary scene in The Dogs of March. Now in this, the seventh and last installment in the series, the Darby constable is an eighty-something widower who wants to do "a great thing" before he motors off into the sunset. You can bet he does ... in strange, wonderful, and dangerous ways.
Saturday, Nov. 22, 10 AM   Meet Tomie dePaola at Gibson's!
After a brief presentation about his new book, Jack, Tomie will sign copies of all his books, new and old, and will also sign copies of the latest issue of New Hampshire Home, which has a fascinating and sumptuous spread featuring his art studio.  
Jack is Tomie's take on traditional “Jack tales”—in which a young hero ventures out to seek his fortune and gains it through luck or pluck. This book is perfect for preschoolers and kids in the early grades!. His hero’s reward is a wealth of animal friends who increase in number—and volume—as the story progresses. What a treat! Don't forget--Christmas is coming. A new Tomie is a great gift.
(Note: a bad date for this event sneaked into an ad in the Hippo. It's Saturday. For real.)
Watch for our email tomorrow about two ticketed December events, both offsite. See below!
