TINY INFINITIES   Author Afternoon
Saturday, June 30, 3-5 pm

We are thrilled to have J.H. Diehl at the bookstore to discuss and sign copies of her middle grade novel, TINY INFINITIES (Chronicle), a Fall 2018 Junior Library Guild Selection this month.

Jean Heilprin Diehl started her career as a newspaper reporter for the Concord Monitor, in Concord NH. She has an MFA from the Iowa Writers Workshop, and has published short fiction for adults in journals and anthologies, and leveled readers and other learning materials in her work for educational publishers. She teaches writing workshop for kids at schools and festivals.
Jean has lived, worked or vacationed in New Hampshire all of her life; her family has a camp in Madison near Silver Lake. She and her husband have two children and currently live in Maryland with their rescue dog, Oliver.



The Find Waldo Local Campaign begins on Sunday, July 1, at White Birch Books and the White Mountain Independents, a network of locally owned and operated stores in the Mt. Washington Valley.

The event, sponsored by Candlewick Press, leads participants on a scavenger hunt through their towns’ business districts on a search for the elusive, red-and-white-stripe wearing picture book character.

This year, as in the past, shoppers who spot Waldo at participating local owned businesses in July become eligible for prizes throughout the month. The celebration then concludes with a closing ceremony or wrap-up party at White Birch Books at the end of the month. Participants will get a “bingo” card with all of the participating businesses listed and can get started from the bookstore on July 1st.

Once we get closer to July 1st we will start listing all of our fellow businesses on our website and FB page or just look for the White Mountain Independent blue flags while driving around the valley. We will be posting photos of where Waldo is in town on our website, FB and Twitter throughout the month. It’s a great way to visit some of our local businesses in a really fun way!

The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter.  

Author Evening - Wednesday, August 1, 7 pm
Tin Mountain Conservation Center
1245 Bald Hill Road, Albany, NH

We will be selling books for this event with author Ben Goldfarb who will be discussing his latest release Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter.

In Eager, environmental journalist Ben Goldfarb reveals that our modern idea of what a healthy landscape looks like and how it functions is wrong, distorted by the fur trade that once trapped out millions of beavers from North America’s lakes and rivers. The consequences of losing beavers were profound: streams eroded, wetlands dried up, and species from salmon to swans lost vital habitat. Today, a growing coalition of “Beaver Believers” including scientists, ranchers, and passionate citizens recognizes that ecosystems with beavers are far healthier, for humans and non-humans alike, than those without them. From the Nevada deserts to the Scottish highlands, Believers are now hard at work restoring these industrious rodents to their former haunts. Eager is a powerful story about one of the world’s most influential species, how North America was colonized, how our landscapes have changed over the centuries, and how beavers can help us fight drought, flooding, wildfire, extinction, and the ravages of climate change. Ultimately, it’s about how we can learn to coexist, harmoniously and even beneficially, with our fellow travelers on this planet.

Ben Goldfarb is an award-winning environmental writer whose journalism has appeared in Mother Jones, Science, The Guardian, Orion Magazine, High Country News, Outside, Audubon Magazine, Pacific Standard, Hakai Magazine, VICE News, Yale Environment 360, and many other publications. His fiction has appeared in the Bellevue Literary Review, Motherboard, and The Hopper. He has spoken about environmental storytelling at venues including Stanford and Yale Universities, the American Fisheries Society, and the North American Congress for Conservation
