Friend of Hobblebush,

We've been told that spring is on its way. In the meantime, what better way to warm up than by sipping wine at LaBelle Winery while meeting our authors? You may have already received this invitation to our Sunday Granite State Authors Series. All are welcome to these free, monthly events, but if possible, please RSVP.

This is a wonderful opportunity if you live close enough. If you don't, we hope you'll read these fantastic authors with your own glass of wine in your favorite reading chair!

May 4
Sidney Hall, Jr., Small Town Tales
Are you a writer? Are you interested in learning about the ins and outs of book publishing? Sidney Hall, Jr., author and president of Hobblebush Books, will discuss and answer questions about book design and publishing. He will also read from and discuss Small Town Tales, his book about small town life in the 50s and 60s.

June 8
Julia Older, Tales of the François Vase
Julia Older’s obsession with the famous François Vase led to both the radio play and book-length poem. Join us as Julia reads from her book, Tales of the François Vase, and brings us through the vase’s dramatic 25-century journey that winds through a subterranean inferno of greed, passion, and terror.

July 20
Tom Fitzgerald, Poor Richard's Lament
What if Ben Franklin came back? What if everything depended on it? This is the springboard for Tom Fitzgerald’s acclaimed book, Poor Richard’s Lament. Join us to hear Tom read from and discuss his book about Ben Franklin’s return to confront contemporary America, and learn a few interesting tidbits about this Founding Father along the way!

Holly has a good nose for books and wine!

Holly won't be able to make it to the first event in the Sunday Granite State Authors Series at LaBelle Winery on March 9th, but here she is, taking our advice, and enjoying Life at the Top on her favorite couch with a glass of Pinot Noir and a succulent biscuit platter.
