"Yankee Come Home," an exploration of Cuba with local author William Craig

09/20/2012 7:00 pm

Thursday September 20th, 2012, 7 p.m.

Local author William Craig brings us a beautiful book, Yankee Come Home. This book combines travelogue, memoir and history to connect the lost legacy of America's 1898 invasion of Cuba -- the campaign we call the "Spanish-American War," as if the Cubans didn't fought for their freedom -- with its traces in Cuba's landscape and culture today.

After a long sojourn as reviewer, feature editor and editorialist for The Valley News, William is a professor in the Community College system of New Hampshire.  He was the founder of the Meetinghouse Readings in Canaan, NH and directed the series for a quarter-century. 

William will be enriching his presentation and reading with Cuban photos and music.

Publishers share all the best books on Friday; meet Archer Mayor on Saturday! October 14th, 2014

Meet the publishers! An event for book clubs and bookish people
On Friday, October 17, starting at 6 PM, some of our favorite reps will be here to discuss what's new and what's hot for book clubs and for everyone who just loves a good read. Whether you're currently a member of a book club or just think you read enough to be in one, this is a great event for you. Pictured above and expected to attend: John Muse from Simon & Schuster, Lesley Vasilio from Penguin Random House, and Ellen Pyle from Macmillan. Also scheduled to appear is Anne DeCourcey (below)from HarperCollins. We'll have refreshments and great giveaways. Everyone is welcome!

Surprise author visit!
We had thought that scheduling conflicts would keep Vermont mystery writer Archer Mayor (below, right) from visiting Gibson's this fall, but as luck would have it, he's free this Saturday afternoon from 1:30 to 2:30 and he will be here in the store!  Drop by to have a copy of his new book signed and to shoot the breeze for a while. ...Note: we're not sure if he's bringing that chain saw, so just be nice.

Some big books for fall
Dan Chartrand from Water Street and I visited Laura Knoy last week 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.
