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.

Dan Szczesny launch party, Jim Hofford poetry, and questions for you. July 8th, 2014
Launch Party! Thursday, July 10, at 7 PM
Join us for the launch party of local author and hiker Dan Szczesny as he presents his newest work, The Nepal Chronicles: Marriage, Mountains and Momos in the Highest Place on Earth.
When travel writer (and local Hippo journalist) Dan Szczesny and his wife, Meenakshi, traveled to Nepal to marry in Kathmandu and trek to Everest Base Camp, they knew the journey would be difficult. What they didn’t realize was how life­changing their time in the land of mountains would be. From the chaos of Kathmandu’s super­charged streets to the tranquil but challenging trails of the Himalayas, his book of the journey, The Nepal Chronicles, is a deeply felt exploration of the culture and history of one of the world’s most complex places, and a meditation on the author’s own personal journey into a new family and relationship unlike any he’s ever experienced.
Dan is also the author of one of last year's bestsellers at Gibson's, The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie.

Friday! July 11, at 7 PM
Local favorite Jim Hofford returns to share his latest volume of verse and memoir, Four Score ... and More
"As a longtime fan, I'm delighted to see this compilation of James Hofford's best work. "Life, she race so fast," he writes and, yet, as poet his job is to slow time, look closely and see. He sees! These poems are sturdy, meticulously built like the best of New England's timeless stone walls. They are love stories, life stories -- some laugh out loud funny (especially the ones for children), some tears down your cheek sad. It's the long lens of "Four Score and More," the full life deeply examined that makes this collection so special. Jim's wife Ellen hears "Music in icy trees." There's music in these poems -- music and magic and sustaining spirituality." -- Rebecca Rule

Informal survey
Well, we've been here for almost a year now! We have some opinions based on experience, but are they based in fact? Let's find out. The subject today is our store hours. If you have a second, please email us with your answers.
  • We're open from 9 AM to 9 PM, every day but Sunday, when we are open 11-6. Did you know that we had such extended hours?
  • What day of the week, and what time of day, are you most likely to visit us?
  • When was the last time you came to the bookstore before 10 AM, or after 7 PM? Which is more important to you, early or late?
  • Are you more likely to combine a trip to Gibson's with other errands downtown, or when you come to see us, is that usually the only thing on your agenda?
  • During the week, once you get home, are you likely to stay there? Does this change depending on whether it's Monday/Tuesday or later in the week, closer to the weekend?
  • Before you come to the bookstore, do you check our website or Facebook page to find out what our hours are?
  • Should we figure out how to use SurveyMonkey instead of asking you to email, or do you relish the opportunity to put your thoughts into writing? ...Perhaps that is a leading question.
Thank you. We're trying to push the envelope with our hours, but we also want to have our best team on the floor when you're likely to visit. Night owls, day trippers, everyone, please tell us your preferences!
