After the turkey and the battle with the crowds on Black Friday, it’s time for something different. Take a book break, and get some holiday shopping done in a friendly atmosphere while supporting a local business in your own community.
On Small Business Saturday, four terrific local authors will become booksellers-for-a-day at Gibson’s Bookstore. Come into the store and ask Joe Monninger, Howard Mansfield, Sy Montgomery and children’s author David Elliott for recommendations for the people on your holiday gift list—and maybe pick up a couple of the authors’ signed books, too. Joe Monninger, who teaches at Plymouth State University, is the author of many novels for adults and for young adults, including Margaret from Maine and Wish. Joe will be in the store from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
David Elliott lives in Warner and is the author of many children’s books, including The Cool Crazy Crickets Club, In the Wild (with Holly Meade), and Jeremy Cabbage. David will be in the store from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Howard Mansfield and Sy Montgomery are married and live in Hancock. Howard is the author of The Same Ax Twice and most recently Dwelling in Possibility. Sy is the author of The good good pig and many other books for all ages on science and nature (Spell of the tiger, The Snake Scientist). Howard and Sy will be in the store from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The idea of authors becoming booksellers for a day on Small Business Saturday was first hatched by Sherman Alexie. Hundreds of bookstores and authors are joining in the fun, all over the country. Read more about this effort here.
