Book Fair to benefit Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research (Andover)
Andover Bookstore, Tuesday, September 2 at 5:30pm
Please Join Us on Tuesday, September 2 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm During which time, 20% of all sales will be donated to benefit the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research -

This fall at the Boston Bruins Alumni charity game, all profits are being donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research -- and this year, the Andover Bookstore is hoping to donate as well! From 5:30pm - 7:30pm on Tuesday, September 2, 20% of all in store sales will be donated to the cause! Parkinson's disease is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease that affects the motor system. Those who have PD suffer from difficulties with breathing, balance, movement, and heart function. The disease is caussed by the slow deterioration of the nerve cells in the brain that create dopamine; a natural substance found in the brain that helps control muscle movement throughout the body. There is currently no cure for Parkinson's disease. So please come, buy books, and help support research for Parkinson's, which affects nearly 500,000 people in the United States alone, with an estimated 50,000 Americans newly diagnosed each year.

Timothy Gager, The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan
Porter Square Books, Tuesday, September 2 at 7pm
"As the son of two psychoanalysts, I feel qualified in diagnosing Timothy Gager as a very sick human being and a fearless writer. His prose is odd, mordant, and disobedient. Read him at your peril." -- Steve Almond, author of God Bless America: Stories

"Timothy Gager's The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan is a gangbusters novel, its characters sharply defined against a backdrop both tense and funny. Bill Sloan is the therapist no one wants, especially since you might say he needs therapy more than his patients. This is a great read." -- Rusty Barnes, co-founder, Night Train Magazine, author of Reckoning

"Timothy Gager blasts another beauty of twisted humanity at its best in The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan. Gager steers us 'like a bird without wings' through this hilarious and strangely familiar brood of characters, accelerating and diving down into the intricacies and mania of our own inner pathos. Get a copy!" – Meg Tuite, author of Bound By Blue

Timothy Gager is the author of eleven books of short fiction and poetry. His latest, The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan, (Big Table Publishing) is his first novel. He hosts the successful Dire Literary Series in Cambridge, Massachusetts for over thirteen years and is the co-founder of Somerville News Writers Festival. His work appears in over 300 journals, of which nine have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. His work has been read on National Public Radio.

Nineteen-year-old Paul sits in a stark interrogation room across from two police officers. What started as petty theft turned into murder; only terror and loyalty keep him silent. Louisa spends her days roaming a crumbling Elizabethan garden—until she meets Paul, who is a dead ringer for her long-lost love. Louisa starts to hope she can find happiness again, but neither of them can outrun his violent past.

The Mystery Book Club is open to the public! If you have read the book and would like to discuss in a group, please stop by!

Peter May, The Lewis Man
Porter Square Books, Wednesday, September 3 at 7pm
Marilyn Stasio in The New York Times raved: "Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth." Among the many honors received, The Blackhouse, the first novel in May’s acclaimed Lewis trilogy, won the Barry and Crime Thriller Hound awards.

In The Lewis Man, the second book of the trilogy, Fin Macleod has returned to the Isle of Lewis, the storm-tossed, wind-scoured outer Hebridean island where he was born and raised. Having left behind his adult life in Edinburgh—including his wife and his career in the police force—the former Detective Inspector is intent on repairing past relationships and restoring his parents' derelict cottage. His plans are interrupted when an unidentified corpse is recovered from a Lewis peat bog. The only clue to its identity is a DNA match to a local farmer, the now-senile Tormod Macdonald—the father of Fin's childhood sweetheart, Marsaili—a man who has claimed throughout his life to be an only child, practically an orphan. Reluctantly drawn into the investigation, Fin uncovers deep family secrets even as he draws closer to the killer who wishes to keep them hidden.

Already an international bestseller and winner of numerous awards, including France's Prix des Lecteurs du Télégramme, The Lewis Man has the lyrical verve of Ian Rankin and the gutsy risk-taking of Benjamin Black. As fascinating and forbidding as the Hebridean landscape, the book (according to The Times) "throbs with past and present passions, jealousies, suspicions and regrets; the emotional secrets of the bleak island are even deeper than its peat bog."

Peter May is the multi award-winning author of the internationally best-selling Lewis Trilogy set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland; the China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell; the critically-acclaimed Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo MacLeod, which is set in France; and Entry Island. One of Scotland's most prolific television dramatists, he garnered more than a thousand credits in fifteen years as scriptwriter and script editor on prime-time British television drama. He is the creator of three major television drama series and presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland before quitting television to concentrate on his first love, writing novels.

Thursday, September 4 at 7pm - Jeff Clements presents "Corporations Are Not People: Reclaiming Democracy from Big Money and Global Corporations "
The Concord Bookshop, Thursday, September 4 at 7pm
Join us as we kick off our Fall 2014 Author Events series with Jeff Clements and the updated and expanded Second Edition of "Corporations are not people."

Since the Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling that the rights of things - money and corporations - matter more than the rights of people, America has faced a crisis of democracy. In this timely and thoroughly updated second edition, Jeff Clements describes the strange history of this bizarre ruling, its ongoing destructive effects, and the growing movement to reverse it. He includes a new chapter, "Do Something!," showing how - state by state and community by community - Americans are using creative strategies and tools to renew democracy and curb unbalanced corporate power. Since the first edition, 16 states, 160 members of Congress, and 500 cities and towns have called for a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United, and the list is growing. This is a fight we can win! Jeff Clements is a cofounder of Free Speech for People, a nonpartisan campaign to reverse Citizens United, work for equal citizenship for all Americans, and reform corporate law. An attorney, Jeff has represented and advocated for people, businesses, and the public interest since 1988.

Liza Ketchum, Out of Left Field
Porter Square Books, Thursday, September 4 at 7pm
The summer of 2004 is full of promise for Brandon McGinnis. He has a job, a spot on the varsity swim team, loving parents, and loyal friends. Brandon and his dad, ardent Red Sox fans, wonder: could this be the year the Sox finally win the World Series? Then Brandon’s father dies suddenly. His will, signed just before his death, reveals a secret kept for thirty years. As shadows of the Vietnam War bleed into the escalating War in Iraq, Brandon sets out to solve the mystery his father left behind. His journey takes him to Canada’s Cape Breton Island, where he uncovers bittersweet truths about the past, and a family facing their own hidden demons. Brandon’s courageous search throws him into life’s game with its devastating losses, unexpected curve balls, and thrills as wondrous as a home run on an autumn night.

Liza Ketchum is the author of many books for young readers, including Where the Great Hawk Flies, winner of the Massachusetts Book Award for Children's Literature, and Newsgirl. She enjoys writing nonfiction and contemporary novels as well as stories about the past. She teaches in the MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Hamline University and divides her time between Massachusetts and Vermont.

Richard Flanagan, The Narrow Road to the Deep North
Porter Square Books, Friday, September 5 at 7pm
From the winner of Australia's National Fiction Prize, author of the hugely acclaimed Gould's Book of Fish, a magisterial, Rashomon-like novel of love and war that traces the life of one man from World War II to the present.

In the despair of a Japanese POW camp on the Thai-Burma Death Railway in 1943, Australian surgeon Dorrigo Evans is haunted by his love affair with his uncle's young wife two years earlier. His life is a daily struggle to save the men under his command from starvation, from cholera, from pitiless beatings. Until he receives a letter that will change him forever. Moving deftly from the POW camp to contemporary Australia, from the experiences of Dorrigo and his comrades to those of the Japanese guards, this savagely beautiful novel tells a story of death, love, and family; exploring the many forms of good and evil, war and truth, guilt and transcendence, as one man comes of age, prospers, only to discover all that he has lost.

Richard Flanagan is the author of five previous novels—Death of a River Guide, The Sound of One Hand Clapping, Gould’s Book of Fish, The Unknown Terrorist, and Wanting—which have received numerous honors and have been published in twenty-six countries. He lives in Tasmania.

Milford - LORRIE THOMSON presents her new novel, What's Left Behind.
Toadstool Bookshop - Milford, Saturday, September 6 at 11am
Please join us in welcoming back local author LORRIE THOMSON. She'll be talking about the writing of her new novel What's Left Behind, and later signing copies for you.

When the person you’ve built your whole life around is gone, what do you do? It’s not the first time Abby Stone has faced the question. At eighteen, she envisioned a future with her childhood sweetheart, Charlie, only to have him go off to school and leave a pregnant Abby behind. But that pales beside a second loss, when her eighteen-year-old son, Luke, falls to his death from his third-floor dorm.

Abby throws herself into running her thriving B&B on the coast of Maine. With the help of Rob, a local landscape architect, she plans a backyard labyrinth as a memorial to Luke—a place to find peace and solace. Even as Charlie begins hanging around again, looking for a chance to do right by her, Abby resolves to look forward, not back. And then Luke’s girlfriend arrives on Abby’s doorstep—pregnant, as alone as Abby once was—bringing with her the unexpected gift of a new beginning, one that celebrates the past.

Rich in emotion and insight, this beautifully written novel explores the depth of a mother’s bond, resilience after unimaginable loss, and the way love’s memory can fill the gaps in a shattered heart.

LORRIE makes her home in southern New Hampshire with her husband and children. When she's not writing or hunting for collectibles, the family lets her tag along for camping adventures, paddles, and hikes up 4000 footers. Her website is lorrie-thomson.com.
