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.

They grew up here and now they're back with books! Plus Saturday poetry. Monday, October 20th, 2014

Events in the bookstore this week....
 
Local girl makes good!
NH author Chelsey Philpot grew up spending her weekends browsing the shelves at Gibson's, and we're thrilled to be able to place her debut novel on the shelves of our new store! Join us as she presents Even in Paradise. Early readers are throwing some pretty impressive names around in trying to describe Chelsey's new book.... "The Great Gatsby meets Looking for Alaska in this stunning debut novel." "With inspiration drawn from Evelyn Waugh's Brideshead Revisited, Chelsey Philpot's moving debut novel perfectly captures the intensity, the thrill, and the heartbreak of our too-brief friendships and loves."
Come meet Chelsey Philpot and hear about this excellent new book!

Local boy makes good!
Concord native Michael Fournier returns triumphant with his new novel! Swing State unveils the generally overlooked decades-long economic downturn in the rural Northeast. With an unflinching eye, he lays bare the dim dreams and raw existence of the lives of three residents of Armbrister, New Hampshire, who share the same goal: Get out. Faced with grim prospects, the intersection of bullying and terrorism blurs, with disastrous consequences in this deftly woven tale.  "A riveting, compassionate story"--Mike Faloon, author of 'The Hanging Gardens of Split Rock' and editor of 'Fan Interference'
 

Quarterly meeting of the Poetry Society of NH--free and open to the public
After a private board meeting, a public poetry event centered on The Widow's Handbook begins at 11 AM and goes until 1 PM. 
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.
 

Some big books for fall
Dan Chartrand from Water Street and I visited Laura Knoy recently to talk about some of the best books for fall. If you missed the show, you can find our lists and listen to the broadcast here.  ... Here's a photo in which I was making some point or other--who knows, really--much to the apparent amusement of Dan.

And that's it for now! Thank you for reading!
For our full events schedule go to www.gibsonsbookstore.com.  And why not follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and (dare we say it? are we ready?) Tumblr.

Our best to you,
Michael Herrmann and the booksellers of Gibson's
