Events

Gibson's keeps an aggressive schedule of author events! We hold at least one event a week, sometimes two or three! (We take a break between Thanksgiving and Christmas, because we've found through trial and error that everyone is way too busy, tired, and overscheduled to drive through the cold, the dark, and the snow to come to author events.)

If you'd like to keep abreast of our events, you can either periodically check our upcomings events page for listings, follow us on Facebook (see the bottom of this page), or sign up for our weekly e-mail newsletter (see the left sidebar).

RSVP's on our Facebook page are appreciated (we never know how many people are going to attend, and it's rather nerve-wracking to guess at what is sufficient stock to order).

If you know you can't come (or think you might not make it, and you'd like to be safe), and you'd still like a signed copy of a book, we are more than happy to reserve one specifically for you for an author to sign. Call the store [(603) 224-0562] or stop in to do this.

We almost always make sure to get a few extra copies signed at events, in case someone forgot about the event and didn't reserve a copy. Signed books make excellent gifts!

 

New books, new trailers

Love is in the air as eight (at least) New Hampshire writers join us to read and celebrate their stories that have been collected in this highly entertaining new book.

Come join us for an evening of literature and fun!

Erik Larson Comes to Concord!
Gibson's Bookstore is pleased to announce that historian Erik Larson--author of Devil in the White City, Isaac's Storm, In the Garden of Beasts, and Thunderstruck--will appear in Concord on March 13 at 7 PM to discuss and sign his new book, Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania.
Vivid and brimming with fascinating stories, Dead Wake is the full and unforgettable portrait of a vanished world on the brink of catastrophic war.

Book club rescheduled
Monday, February 16, at 7 PM
Every February, our book group meets for a discussion and dramatic reading of a play by Shakespeare. This year we're doing Othello. This meeting was originally planned for Monday, Feb. 2, but was rescheduled due to snow.  We hope for clear skies, easy driving, and any tragic outcomes only on the page. All are welcome!
(Laurence Fishburne as Othello and Kenneth Branagh as Iago, in the 1995 movie.)
