Patrick Dacey presents "The Outer Cape"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, July 6 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, July 6 at 7pm, when Patrick Dacey presents his new novel, The Outer Cape.

There will be an opportunity for conversation with the author and a book-signing after the presentation.

This event is a free event. Should you wish to purchase a signed/inscribed copy of the book, but are unable to attend the author presentation, please give us a call to pre-order.

Patrick Dacey holds an MFA from Syracuse University. He has taught English at several universities in the U.S. and Mexico, and has worked as a reporter, landscaper, door-to-door salesman, and most recently on the overnight staff at a homeless shelter and detox center. His stories have been featured in The Paris Review, Zoetrope All-Story, Guernica, Bomb magazine, and Salt Hill among other publications.

** A piercing and compassionate debut novel about the twisting ways in which the young atone for the sins of the old in small town America **

Robert Kelly and his wife Irene were a golden couple of the late 70s she an artist, he a businessman, each possessed by a dynamism that seemed to promise them a place in a new and vibrant age. But with two young boys to care for, Irene finds herself confined by the very things she d dreamed of having, and her painting ambitions atrophy as she struggles to invest meaning into her role as wife and mother. And Robert, pressured by Irene's demands and haunted by the failure he sees looming, risks the family name and business to pursue a can t-miss real estate scheme.

In "The Outer Cape" we revisit the fictional town of Wequaquet, the setting of his short fiction collection, We've Already Gone This Far and see Patrick Dacey's talent stretch and soar. He delivers a story of four people grappling with the ghost of infinite possibility, a book in which chasing the American dream and struggling to survive are one and the same. (TooFondOfBooks)

Laura Harrington presents "A Catalog of Birds"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, September 21 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, September 21 at 7pm, when Gloucester resident Laura Harrington discusses her new novel, A Catalog of Birds.

Laura Harrington is a playwright and the author of the novel Alice Bliss. She teaches playwriting at MIT, where she was awarded the Levitan Prize. She has been the guest artist at Tufts, Harvard, Wellesley, The University of Iowa and UMASS Lowell.
-------------
Set in 1970, a watershed moment in American History, A Catalog of Birds tells the story of the Flynn family and the devastating impact of the Vietnam War. At the heart of the novel is the relationship between siblings Nell and Billy Flynn. Nell excels academically and is headed to college and a career in science. Billy, a passionate artist, enlists as a pilot to fulfill his lifelong dream of flying. He is the only survivor when his helicopter is shot down. When he returns home his wounds limit his ability to sketch or even hold a pencil. As Billy struggles to regain the life he once had, Nell and their family will have to do all that’s possible to save him.

Lyrical and affecting, Laura Harrington has written an artful family drama about innocence lost and wounds that may never be healed. This is a tale of forgiveness: of ourselves, of those we love best. Illuminated by grief and desire, the novel is full of spirit, wonder and the possibilities of the future. (TooFondOfBooks)

Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb present "Last Christmas in Paris"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, October 5 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, October 5, when Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb present their new novel, Last Christmas in Paris.

This event is free and open to the public. After the author presentation, there will be time for Q&A and conversation with the audience, and book signing.

August 1914. England is at war. As Evie Elliott watches her brother, Will, and his best friend, Thomas Harding, depart for the front, she believes—as everyone does—that it will be over by Christmas, when the trio plan to celebrate the holiday among the romantic cafes of Paris.

But as history tells us, it all happened so differently…

Evie and Thomas experience a very different war. Frustrated by life as a privileged young lady, Evie longs to play a greater part in the conflict—but how?—and as Thomas struggles with the unimaginable realities of war he also faces personal battles back home where War Office regulations on press reporting cause trouble at his father’s newspaper business. Through their letters, Evie and Thomas share their greatest hopes and fears—and grow ever fonder from afar. Can love flourish amid the horror of the First World War, or will fate intervene?

Christmas 1968. With failing health, Thomas returns to Paris—a cherished packet of letters in hand—determined to lay to rest the ghosts of his past. But one final letter is waiting for him…

Hazel Gaynor is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Girl Who Came Home and A Memory of Violets. Originally from Yorkshire, England, Hazel now lives in Ireland with her husband and two children.

Heather Webb is the acclaimed author of historical novels Becoming Josephine and Rodin’s Lover. Heather is a member of the Historical Novel Society and lives in New England with her children and husband, and one feisty rabbit. (TooFondOfBooks)

Upton Bell and Ron Borges present "Present at the Creation: My Life in the NFL and the Rise of America's Game"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, November 2 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, November 2 at 7pm, when Upton Bell and Ron Borges will be here to discuss and sign Present at the Creation My Life in the NFL and the Rise of America’s Game.

This event is free and open to the public. There will be an author reading and presentation, Q&A and conversation with the audience, and book signing.

To understand how the NFL became the sports phenomenon it is today, you can study its history or you can live its history as an active participant. Upton Bell grew up at the knee of the NFL’s first great commissioner, his father, the legendary Bert Bell, who not only saved the game from financial ruin after World War II but was one of its greatest innovators. Coining the phrase “On any given Sunday,” Bert invented the pro football draft and proposed sudden death rules.

Present at the Creation details Bell’s firsthand experiences, which started as he watched his father draw up the league schedule each year at the kitchen table using dominoes. There he learned the importance of parity, which is a hallmark of the league’s success, and also how to create it. Over the past fifty-three years, Bell has been an owner, a general manager, a personnel executive, a scouting director for two Super Bowl teams, a television commentator and analyst, and a talk-radio host. He has seen the NFL from the inside and has experienced many of the most important moments in NFL history.

Bell was player-personnel director for the Baltimore Colts when the team played in three championship games and appeared in two Super Bowls (1968 and 1970). At thirty-three, he became the youngest general manager in NFL history when he joined the Patriots in that role in 1971. He left the NFL in 1974 to compete against it, joining the upstart World Football League as owner of the Charlotte Hornets, which lasted just two years. In 1976 Bell began his forty‑year career as a radio and TV talk-show host, yet he remains a football guy who was in the middle of the game’s most significant moments and knows that half the story has never been told, until now.

** A young adult novel about a teen who finds hope and a fresh start through theater. **

After his mother dies, Max Friedman struggles to live without the one person who understood him, and slips into a world of secrets and solitude. Desperate, his father enrolls him in a private school for creative teens. There, Max begins emerging from his darkness as he connects for the first time with other artistic kids. He meets Fish, a girl with pink hair and a troubled past; Ravi, a set designer with secrets of his own; and the Monk, an upperclassman who refuses to let go of the things he loves. When Max joins them in a production of Hamlet, he discovers that everyone struggles with something—and perhaps it is our imperfections that make life worth living. (TooFondOfBooks)
