Sally Sanford and Ilse Plume present "Henry and the Huckleberries: A Visit with Mr. Thoreau at Walden Pond"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, March 5 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, March 5 at 3pm for an author/illustrator event for Henry and the Huckleberries: A Visit with Mr. Thoreau at Walden Pond, a beautiful picture book celebrating Henry David Thoreau on the occasion of the bicentennial of his birth.

The great naturalist, Henry David Thoreau, takes his young friends berry picking near Walden Pond and turns a mishap into a gentle lesson about nature.

Based on a true story, this delightful and beautifully illustrated work of “reality fiction” uses a technique inspired by Louisa May Alcott, who is portrayed as a child in the book. Louisa was a frequent visitor to Henry David Thoreau’s famous cabin at Walden Pond and went berry picking with Mr. Thoreau on many occasions. Thoreau taught Louisa a great deal about the natural world and also about the rich world of the imagination.

Sally Sanford has deftly woven these strands into the book, and Caldecott Honor winner Ilse Plume’s images capture the enduring beauty and tranquility of Walden Pond and its neighboring woods.

Author Sally Sanford lives in a restored barn in Concord, Massachusetts not far from Walden Pond. She has two grown children. In addition to writing, she loves to cook, hike, and canoe. She is also an accomplished singer.

Illustrator Ilse Plume is a collector and illustrator of children’s songs and folktales from around the world. Her first book, "The Bremen Town Musicians," was a Caldecott Honor book for 1981. Since then she has created many other beautiful works including "The Farmer in the Dell" and "The Year Comes Round." (TooFondOfBooks)

Jim Shepard presents "The World to Come"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, March 9 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, March 9 at 7pm, when Jim Shepard presents his new short fiction collection, "The World to Come: Stories."

“Without a doubt the most ambitious story writer in America,” according to The Daily Beast, Jim Shepard now delivers a new collection that spans borders and centuries with unrivaled mastery.

These ten stories ring with voices belonging to - among others - English Arctic explorers in one of history’s most nightmarish expeditions, a young contemporary American negotiating the shockingly underreported hazards of our crude-oil trains, eighteenth-century French balloonists inventing manned flight, and two mid-nineteenth-century housewives trying to forge a connection despite their isolation on the frontier of settlement. In each case the personal is the political as these characters face everything from the emotional pitfalls of everyday life to historic catastrophes on a global scale. In his fifth collection, Shepard makes each of these wildly various worlds his own, and never before has he delineated anything like them so powerfully.

Jim Shepard is the author of seven novels and four previous story collections. He lives in Williamstown, Massachusetts, with his wife, three children, and three beagles. He teaches at Williams College. (TooFondOfBooks)
