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.

Dan Szczesny launch party, Jim Hofford poetry, and questions for you. July 8th, 2014
Launch Party! Thursday, July 10, at 7 PM
Join us for the launch party of local author and hiker Dan Szczesny as he presents his newest work, The Nepal Chronicles: Marriage, Mountains and Momos in the Highest Place on Earth.
When travel writer (and local Hippo journalist) Dan Szczesny and his wife, Meenakshi, traveled to Nepal to marry in Kathmandu and trek to Everest Base Camp, they knew the journey would be difficult. What they didn’t realize was how life­changing their time in the land of mountains would be. From the chaos of Kathmandu’s super­charged streets to the tranquil but challenging trails of the Himalayas, his book of the journey, The Nepal Chronicles, is a deeply felt exploration of the culture and history of one of the world’s most complex places, and a meditation on the author’s own personal journey into a new family and relationship unlike any he’s ever experienced.
Dan is also the author of one of last year's bestsellers at Gibson's, The Adventures of Buffalo and Tough Cookie.

Friday! July 11, at 7 PM
Local favorite Jim Hofford returns to share his latest volume of verse and memoir, Four Score ... and More
"As a longtime fan, I'm delighted to see this compilation of James Hofford's best work. "Life, she race so fast," he writes and, yet, as poet his job is to slow time, look closely and see. He sees! These poems are sturdy, meticulously built like the best of New England's timeless stone walls. They are love stories, life stories -- some laugh out loud funny (especially the ones for children), some tears down your cheek sad. It's the long lens of "Four Score and More," the full life deeply examined that makes this collection so special. Jim's wife Ellen hears "Music in icy trees." There's music in these poems -- music and magic and sustaining spirituality." -- Rebecca Rule

Informal survey
Well, we've been here for almost a year now! We have some opinions based on experience, but are they based in fact? Let's find out. The subject today is our store hours. If you have a second, please email us with your answers.
  • We're open from 9 AM to 9 PM, every day but Sunday, when we are open 11-6. Did you know that we had such extended hours?
  • What day of the week, and what time of day, are you most likely to visit us?
  • When was the last time you came to the bookstore before 10 AM, or after 7 PM? Which is more important to you, early or late?
  • Are you more likely to combine a trip to Gibson's with other errands downtown, or when you come to see us, is that usually the only thing on your agenda?
  • During the week, once you get home, are you likely to stay there? Does this change depending on whether it's Monday/Tuesday or later in the week, closer to the weekend?
  • Before you come to the bookstore, do you check our website or Facebook page to find out what our hours are?
  • Should we figure out how to use SurveyMonkey instead of asking you to email, or do you relish the opportunity to put your thoughts into writing? ...Perhaps that is a leading question.
Thank you. We're trying to push the envelope with our hours, but we also want to have our best team on the floor when you're likely to visit. Night owls, day trippers, everyone, please tell us your preferences!
