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.

Busiest week of the year! Bill Littlefield, Ernie Hebert, Tomie dePaola, all at Gibson's. November 17th, 2014

What a week at Gibson's!
This may be our busiest week of the year for events. Read on...
 
Tuesday, Nov. 18, 7 PM  Bill Littlefield! If you're up early enough on Saturday, you may (as we do) reward yourselves with the fantastic sports show Only a Game, hosted by Bill Littlefield, heard on WBUR and on our own NHPR. Bill has written and collected some whimsical light verse, all on the subject of sports. Join us as he shares his poems with a Concord audience! He'll be here on Nov. 18. Come early to get a good seat! His signed book will be a wonderful Christmas present for the sports nuts on your list.
Friday, Nov. 21, 7 PM   Ernie Hebert now concludes the Darby Chronicles, which he began 35 years ago with The Dogs of March.
"Ernie Hebert's novels don't just capture New England; they've become a part of it...and his latest is a spectacular addition to an already impressive canon."—Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of My Sister's Keeper and Vanishing Acts
Part Falstaff, part King Lear, but all American, Howard Elman was a fifty-something workingman when he burst onto the literary scene in The Dogs of March. Now in this, the seventh and last installment in the series, the Darby constable is an eighty-something widower who wants to do "a great thing" before he motors off into the sunset. You can bet he does ... in strange, wonderful, and dangerous ways.
Saturday, Nov. 22, 10 AM   Meet Tomie dePaola at Gibson's!
After a brief presentation about his new book, Jack, Tomie will sign copies of all his books, new and old, and will also sign copies of the latest issue of New Hampshire Home, which has a fascinating and sumptuous spread featuring his art studio.  
Jack is Tomie's take on traditional “Jack tales”—in which a young hero ventures out to seek his fortune and gains it through luck or pluck. This book is perfect for preschoolers and kids in the early grades!. His hero’s reward is a wealth of animal friends who increase in number—and volume—as the story progresses. What a treat! Don't forget--Christmas is coming. A new Tomie is a great gift.
(Note: a bad date for this event sneaked into an ad in the Hippo. It's Saturday. For real.)
Watch for our email tomorrow about two ticketed December events, both offsite. See below!
