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)

Andrew Krivak presents "The Signal Flame"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, March 19 at 3pm
The stunning second novel from National Book Award finalist Andrew Krivak - a heartbreaking, captivating story about a family awaiting the return of their youngest son from the Vietnam War.

The Signal Flame is a stirring novel about generations of men and women and the events that define them, brothers who take different paths, the old European values yielding to new world ways, and the convalescence of memory and war.

Beginning shortly after Easter in 1972 and ending on Christmas Eve this ambitious novel beautifully evokes ordinary time, a period of living and working while waiting and watching and expecting. The Signal Flame is gorgeously written, honoring the cycles of earth and body, humming with blood and passion, and it confirms Andrew Krivak as a writer of extraordinary vision and power.

Andrew Krivák is also the author of the National Book Award finalist, The Sojourn, which also won the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and the Chautauqua Prize. He lives with his wife and three children in Somerville, Massachusetts. (TooFondOfBooks)

Lawrence Millman presents "At the End of the World: A True Story of Murder in the Arctic"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, March 23 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, March 23 at 7pm, when Lawrence Millman presents his new book, At the End of the World: A True Story of Murder in the Arctic.

At the End of the World is the remarkable story of a series of murders that occurred in an extremely remote corner of the Arctic in 1941. Those murders show that senseless violence in the name of religion is not only a contemporary phenomenon, and that a people as seemingly peaceful as the Inuit can become unpeaceful at the drop of a hat or, in this instance, a meteor shower.

At the same time, the book is a warning cry against the destruction of what's left of our culture's humanity, along the destruction of the natural world. Has technology deprived us of our eyes? the author asks. Has it deprived the world of birds, beasts, and flowers?

Lawrence Millman's At the End of the World is a brilliant and original book by one of the boldest writers of our era.

Lawrence Millman is a man who wears many hats. He is the author of 16 books, including such titles as Last Places, Our Like Will Not Be There Again, A Kayak Full of Ghosts, Lost in the Arctic, Northern Latitudes, and Hiking to Siberia. As a mycologist, he has written the only guidebook to New England fungi, Fascinating Fungi of New England. And as an explorer, he has discovered a previously unknown lake in Borneo and a previously unknown island in the Canadian Arctic. He is a Fellow of the prestigious Explorers Club and keeps a post office box in Cambridge. (TooFondOfBooks)
