Jon Palfreman presents "Brain Storms" The Race to Unlock the Mysteries of Parkinson's Disease"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, September 17 at 7pm
The race is on to discover a means to stop or reverse neurodegenerative conditions like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. "Brain Storms" is the long-overdue, riveting detective story of that race, and a passionate, insightful account into the lives of those affected.

Seven million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson's - with sixty thousand new cases diagnosed each year in the U.S. alone - and it remains an enigma, with doctors, researchers, and patients hunting for a cure. In Brain Storms, award-winning journalist Jon Palfreman tells their story, a story that takes on urgency when he is diagnosed with the debilitating illness.

Palfreman chronicles how scientists have labored to crack the mystery of what was once called "the shaking palsy," from the earliest clinical descriptions to the cutting edge of molecular neuroscience. He charts the victories and setbacks of a massive international effort to best the disease, referred to as one of the best windows into the brain itself.

"Brain Storms" is also a profoundly personal investigation into Palfreman's own struggles and those of others living with Parkinson's. From a professional ballet dancer who "tricks" her body to move freely again, to a "frozen" patient who cannot walk but astounds doctors when he is able to ride a bicycle, Palfreman shines a light on the varied and ingenious ways patients cope with having their bodies steadily taken away from them.

Matthew Dicks presents "The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs"
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, October 1 at 7pm
Please join us on Thursday, October 1 at 7pm, when author Matthew Dicks visits the Bookshop to read from and sign his newest novel, The Perfect Comeback of Caroline Jacobs.

Caroline Jacobs is a wimp. She specializes in the suffering of tiny indignities in silence. And some of the big ones, too. But when this engaging novel opens, Caroline has asserted herself with the twinset wearing president of the PTO. With a four-letter word, no less.

Caroline's outburst awakened something in her. Not just gumption, but a realization that the roots of her tirade could be traced back to something that happened to her as a teenager, when her best friend Emily very publicly betrayed her. So, with a little bit of bravery, Caroline decides to go back to her home town and tell off her childhood friend. She busts her daughter out of school, and the two set off to deliver the perfect comeback . . . some twenty-five years later. But nothing goes as planned. Long buried secrets rise to the surface. And Caroline will have to face much more than one old, bad best friend.

THE PERFECT COMEBACK OF CAROLINE JACOBS is about a woman looking to fix her life through an act of bravery (or perhaps lunacy). It's also the story of mother and daughter learning to understand one another. This engaging, quirky, voice-driven novel is perfect for those of us who were last to be picked at sports, for the woman who was bullied by the mean girl, and for everyone who is thrilled not to be in high school any more.

Matthew Dicks is a writer and elementary school teacher. He has been published in the Hartford Courant, featured at the Books on the Nightstand retreat, and is a Moth StorySLAM champion. He is the author of three previous novels, Something Missing, Unexpectedly Milo, and Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend, an international bestseller. His novels have been translated into more than 25 languages. Dicks lives in Newington, Connecticut, with his wife, Elysha, and their two children. (TooFondOfBooks)
