 PLAID FRIDAY at White Birch Books
Friday, November 29, All Day

This year we will be continuing our tradition of Plaid Friday! Plaid Friday is the relaxing and enjoyable alternative to the big box store "Black Friday" and is designed to promote both local and independently owned businesses during the holidays.

The name Plaid Friday was conceived from the idea of weaving the individual threads of small businesses together to create a strong fabric that celebrates the diversity and creativity of independent businesses like us!

This year we will be celebrating all day by wearing our plaid attire and we want you to get into the spirit too by wearing your plaid garb. When you do, we will give you 10% off any book in the store (some minor restrictions apply) and if you spend $50 we will give you a locally made plaid scarf from Ragged Mountain Equipment!

So be sure to stop by White Birch Books and look for the blue flags flying outside the other White Mountain Independents around the valley!

TOOTH FAIRY VS SANTA with Jamie L B Deenihan

TOOTH FAIRY VS SANTA follows a showdown between Santa and the Tooth Fairy after a girl loses her first tooth on Christmas Eve! Blue is very excited to complete his first mission, but when he arrives at the girl's house that night to collect the tooth, Santa is already there spreading holiday cheer and unwilling to share the holiday. A battle ensues over who will claim the glory of the night to themselves. Who will win this face-off, Santa or the Tooth Fairy?

For ten years, Jamie L B Dennihan worked as a certified reading specialist and first grade teacher in western Massachusetts. After her husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2015, she now works part-time as a teacher to spend more time with her family while also pursuing a writing career.

Becky RuleDesire Lines  

An Afternoon with Marie Harris and Becky Rule
Poetry, stories and laughter with Desire Lines and That Reminds Me of a Funny Story
Saturday, December 14, 2 p.m.

Two wonderful New Hampshire authors all one in great place!

Desire Lines is Marie's fifth book of poetry—work written over more than a decade. The collection also includes poems commissioned during her tenure as NH Poet Laureate as well as other public poems that have appeared on sculptures, in parks, on postcards and billboards, and even on Twitter!

In her career as a Yankee storyteller, Rebecca Rule has traveled throughout New England telling stories and gathering them. One story leads to another. At town halls, historical societies, churches, and senior centers, people have shared stories that connect them to this rocky old place we call home. They’ve shared stories of family, country living, adventures and misadventures, triumphs, and “what the heck just happened?” That Reminds Me of a Funny Store is the capstone on a twenty-five year career; the best of the best of these stories.

It is also a memoir of how she came to be a storyteller, why storytelling matters, and what she has learned about the craft in the hundreds of performances she has given. It’s a book full of characters, insight, heart, and good humor. Careful where you read it because you will be laughing out loud!

Marie Harris is also an anthologist who, with her co-editor Kathleen Aguero, edited one of the earliest multicultural anthologies of contemporary American poetry: An Ear to the Ground (Univ of Georgia Press). She has written three children's books: G is for Granite, A NH Alphabet Book; Primary Numbers, A NH Number Book; and The Girl Who Heard Colors a book about synesthesia. It was named Outstanding Work of Children's Literature by the NH Writers Project in 2016. Marie's research on the alphabet book led her to discover Henniker native Amy Cheney Beach, America's first female composer, herself a synesthete, and she has created a performance in words and music based on the composer's life.

Rebecca Rule is a full-time writer, humorist, storyteller, host for 10 years of the NH Authors Series on NHPTV, currently host of Our Hometown also on NHPTV. She’s been telling stories in New England, especially New Hampshire, for more than twenty years. She hasn’t visited every town in the Granite State, but pretty close — speaking at libraries, historical societies, rotaries, clubs, church groups, camp grounds, and charitable organizations. She says she likes collecting stories because “they’re free and you don’t have to dust them."

She’s the author of a dozen books including N is for NH, The Iciest Diciest Scariest Sled Ride Ever!, Headin’ for the Rhubarb, A NH Dictionary (well, kinda); and The  Best Revenge, named one of five essential NH Books by NH Magazine and Outstanding Work of Fiction by the NH Writers Project.
