We are thrilled to be participating in this year's Independent Book Store Day, Saturday, May 2.  Authors Timothy Gager, Matthew Sisson, and Robin Stratton will be on hand at various time during the day.  The makers of McCrea's Candies will be here as well!

11pm to 1PM

Timothy Gager is the author of The Thursday Appointments of Bill Sloan a "gangbuster 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."

McCrea's Candies

Some folks from McCrea's Candies will be on hand to talk about their delicious caramels and give out free samples. Yum!

1PM to 3PM

Matthew Sisson's poetry has appeared in magazines and journals ranging from JAMA the Journal of the American Medical Association to the Harvard Review Online. His first collection of poetry, Please, Call Me Moby was published early this year.

3PM to 5PM

Author and friend of the Book Fair, Robin Stratton, will be here to discuss her latest novel Blue or Blue Skies. “Reading Blue or Blue Skies is like curling up with an intimate friend. The fluid writing and emotional insights draw the reader in and suspend the passage of time. A vivid portrait of heartbreak and redemption; nobody depicts relationship dynamics like Robin Stratton.” ~ Lascaux Review
