Celebrating Howard Frank Mosher + the release of 'Points North'

Thursday, January 25th

6:00pm - 7:30pm

 

Join Bridgeside Books as we celebrate and honor Howard Frank Mosher and the release of his final book POINTS NORTH. We will have plenty of copies available for purchase as well as earlier books.


We look forward to welcoming local author Stephen Russell Payne to read passages from POINTS NORTH and share tales of Howard Frank Mosher. We invite the community to read passages from their favorite novel or share personal tales of how Howard impacted their life.


About the Book:
"In POINTS NORTH, completed just weeks before his death, Mosher presents a brilliant, lovingly-evoked collection of stories that center around the Kinneson family, ranging over decades of their history in the Kingdom. From a loquacious itinerant preacher who beguiles the reticent farmers and shopkeepers of a small New England town, to a proposed dam that threatens the river that Kinneson men have fished for generations, the scandalous secret of a romance and its violent consequences, and a young man's seemingly fruitless search for love--POINTS NORTH is a full-hearted, gently-comic, and beautifully-written last gift to the readers who treasure Howard Frank Mosher."

This event is free and open to the public.

'Salamander Sky' Katy Farber Reading + Workshop

Saturday, March 17th

10:30am - 12:00pm

 

Join us in welcoming local author + educator Katy Farber and her new book Salamander Sky. We look forward to having Katy at Bridgeside Books again!

The Salamander Sky workshop is geared toward preschool through elementary school aged students, and models first hand exploration and investigation in nature. The workshop will target many of the Next Generation Science Standards for elementary school students, including life cycles, wetland habitats, diversity, adaptations and human impact.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Every spring in the eastern region of the United States, warmer nights with steady rain bring the migration of thousands of spotted salamanders to ponds and pools, often across busy roads. These crossings are magical, and secretive--most people don't even know they happen. 

Salamander Sky features a mother and daughter who go out on a rainy night to help the salamanders cross the road safely. This picture book introduces readers to the elusive spotted salamander and the perilous nighttime journey they take each spring. Amphibians worldwide desperately need protection. Salamander Sky is a valuable tool for getting children engaged in conservation.

"Salamander Sky has within its pages the power to ignite curiosity in the unexplored backyard while at the same time respecting and not disrupting nature's hand in the survival of a species. And what could be better than that?"   
--Matthew C. Winner, Co-Founder of All the Wonders
