Book Store hosts Sebastian Junger June 21 in Gloucester

The Book Store 61 Main Street in Gloucester is readying for an upcoming Sebastian Junger author event that they’re hosting, and Fiesta!

They have filled one of their windows and the walls behind the check out counter with Alice Gardener’s art. Super-star selling author of War and The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger,  will be in town with his new book  The Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging  on June 21, 2016, 7pm. Note the venue for the book reading as it will be held  in the Amvets on Prospect Street rather than the Book Store in order to accommodate more guests.

AMVETS and Operation Troop Support Experience

I bought three raffle tickets, and didn't win anything, never do, but that's not the point, is it? Operation Troop Support, for our men and women overseas. https://www.facebook.com/AMVETSLadiesAuxiliaryPost32 http://www.facebook.com/jalapenosmexrestaurant

Yesterday, while walking down Main Street to see what the police activity was, I saw Barbara, a woman who worked for many years at Bookends, where Dogtown Books is now. She was hurrying to the same emergency scene, because her daughter works nearby. She invited me to the AmVets fundraiser next door at Jalapenos that night. Once there, I saw Barbara's mother, Donna Hand, who was a bartender at "The Rigger" for many years before Jalapenos, which was next door to my gallery. Also volunteering was City Councilor Melissa Cox, who's running for office again and is everywhere as a volunteer. L–R: Donna Hand, Melissa Cox, and Barbara, all there for the AmVets 32 Auxiliary. Donna's son and Barbara's brother, is a Black Hawk helicopter pilot. God Bless and we can't tell you where he is, because even we don't know.
