Celebrate local culture and diversity this Thursday!

We love author events that illustrate how special New Hampshire is. This Thursday, we celebrate two books that succeed incredibly well at this.

Becky Field's Different Roots, Common Dreams documents the lives of NH’s immigrants and refugees — weddings, funerals, workplaces, children at play, sacred ceremonies, and joyful celebrations. Her photographs, and the stories she has gathered by NH’s refugees, help us understand the journeys and show us the beauty and resilience of NH’s new American families.

Different Roots

Cider Monday!

Yes, it's Cider Monday, when shoppers across the country drop into their local independent stores chasing the elusive perfect cup of hot cider. ...Seriously, spend more than $10 in the bookstore today, and enjoy a free small hot cider in True Brew Cafe, on us!

Signed books!

One of the perks about being an independent bookstore is that friendly publishers will fly authors into New York, sit them in a room with a cup of coffee, and ask them to sign 3,000 copies of their new books--just for us and stores like us!

Stacy Schiff's The Witches

To Kill a Mockingbird Readathon!

It's here! On Tuesday, July 14, Harper Lee published the long-awaited sequel (of sorts) to her immortal To Kill a Mockingbird. The new novel--which was actually written in the 1950s and was the precursor to TKAM--is called Go Set a Watchman. Order it here. (Or just call or come in, we have plenty)

On Monday, July 13, starting at noon, Gibson's hosted a "Celebrity Readathon" of To Kill a Mockingbird. Thanks to all our readers! Check out photos from this event on Facebook.
