Gibson's Bookstore in Concord, NH, launched STREGA NONA DOES IT AGAIN on publication day, September 26. During the late afternoon, Tomie spoke to a small group of educators at the store. Later, Tomie spoke to a standing-room-only crowd at the Red River Theatres, down the street from the bookstore. The people who came through the autographing line were sweet and enthusiastic. It was a terrific launch!

Because Tomie was speaking in a movie theater, it wasn't a surprise that many in the audience were munching on popcorn, Crows licorice, Jujubes, and drinking sodas. But, it was a funny sight.

Michael Herrmann just made a bold move by moving into a new store space on September 7. The new store is at least three times larger than the old one, and has a cafe, toy section and area for author presentations. It's a wonderful new store.
