09/26/2013 6:00 pm

Thursday, September 26th, 2013, 6 p.m. at Red River Theatres

Join Gibson's Bookstore in the comfort of Red River Theatres as we celebrate the launch of Tomie dePaola's newest children's book to feature his beloved character, Strega Nona! This beloved author loves fielding questions from children. 

Tomie dePaola is one of only five authors to be have been awarded a Newbury Honor and a Caldecott Honor. One of the most decorated figures in children's literature today, Tomie's works have over 15 million copies in print.

This will be a ticketed event, to help pay for renting the space. Adult tickets are $5, and can be redeemed as $5 off your purchase of $15 or more at Gibson's Bookstore at or after the event. Children's tickets are $2. One free ticket (adult or child) is included with each copy of Strega Nona Does it Again from Gibson's Bookstore.

Tomie will sign any book you purchase through Gibson's, and up one book purchased elsewhere or brought in from home. We are very fortunate that he is able to sign so many books at our event! Wrist issues in the past have sometime restricted the number of books Tomie is able to sign and personalize.

Can't make the event? Call us (603-224-0562) or email us (gibsons@totalnetnh.net) to have us put a copy aside to be signed for you. Or purchase a copy from the book link below and ask us to have it signed in the "Order Comments" box.

Meet sportswriter Bob Ryan on Tuesday, Ellen Stimson (author of Mud Season) on Thursday! Monday, October 27th, 2014


Meet Bob Ryan!
 One of the finest sportwriters and journalists of his or any generation, Bob Ryan is the voice of New England sports. His new memoir, Scribe, has just hit the shelves, and he is coming to Concord to talk about it--about his life in sports. Don't miss this chance to meet Bob Ryan! (And even if sports aren't your thing--don't forget, Christmas is coming!) Bob will be joining us at 7 PM, Tuesday, October 28. Read more about him in this Concord Monitor article.
 
Meet Ellen Stimson, author of Mud Season
 Mud Season was one of bestsellers last year, and if you liked that, you'll love Ellen's new book, Good Grief!  ,  the continuing adventures of her family in the wilds of Vermont.  One hesitates to call any book "the quintessential New England book," but this has to be among the finalists. Meet Ellen on Thursday, October 30, at 7 PM.

 
Strongest week of the year for new releases
A lot of important books hit the shelves tomorrow (Tuesday)--important because they're ground-breaking, important because they're entertaining, important because they're artfully written--or all of the above. Here are just a few examples. Click the cover art for more details.  And come have a look tomorrow!
