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.

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.)
