Jonny Lang

6:30 PM - Plymouth

Nineteen years ago, at the age of 16, Jonny Lang found incredible success with the release of his major label debut album Lie To Me. Fame does not seem to have impacted him from being the same country farm boy from Fargo, ND who got his start in the local clubs of Minneapolis. He has a keen sense of what he aims to achieve creatively, what music means to him, and is focused on the impact that his songs bring to the lives of those that encounter his repertoire. You won't want to miss this big talent in our intimate venue!

Horror novelist Paul Tremblay

5:30 PM - Concord

Author presentation and book signing. There is evil at Devil’s Rock . . . Once again, Paul Tremblay, author of the acclaimed 2015 novel A Head Full of Ghosts, expertly blurs the lines of psychological suspense, supernatural horror, and literary fiction. As the author explains it, at the core of the tale is “the entwinement of nascent masculinity and violence.” His intent: to create an atmospheric, shuddering read in which readers are “pleasantly unsure of what’s happening until they’re not unsure,” – and, yes, he hopes that readers are creeped out, too. In Disappearance at Devil’s Rock, late one summer night Elizabeth Sanderson receives the devastating news that every mother fears: her thirteen-year-old son, Tommy, has vanished without a trace in the woods of a local park. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Paul Tremblay is a multiple Bram Stoker Award finalist and author of A Head Full of Ghosts and the crime novels The Little Sleep (2009) and No Sleep Till Wonderland (2010). He is currently a member of the board of directors of the Shirley Jackson Awards, and his essays and short fiction have appeared in the Los Angeles Times and numerous “year’s best” anthologies. He has a master’s degree in mathematics and lives outside Boston with his wife and two children.

Author Dan Lawton presents Operation Salazar

5:30 PM - Concord

Dan Lawton returns to central NH to present his thrilling novel, Operation Salazar! A home invasion uncovers a conspiracy that threatens to overthrow a nationwide criminal enterprise. For Marco Salazar, it was supposed to be a routine home invasion. Except, as he learned, there's no such thing. With the help of his longtime friend, Antonio Esposito - the soft-spoken wingman - and his pizzeria-owning uncle, Amelio "Big Sal", Marco's journey for righteousness for his falsely imprisoned father, Bartolo, leads them through the suburbs of Boston. A string of home invasions leaves the trio just shy of having the money needed for Bartolo's defense attorney's retainer, and they've saved their prime target for last. But even the target - a 1941 Victorian in a quiet neighborhood in Stoneham - has secrets trapped deep within its walls, and unlocking them might unravel a whole new world that has its own set of rules. And the players who loom in the shadows are ruthless, with its net stretching even wider than anyone could imagine. Nobody can be trusted. And that's only the beginning. What the secrets may reveal could tear down an underground criminal enterprise, and it threatens to destroy everything that Marco has worked for. Families will be torn apart, bonds will be broken, and faith in one another will be put into question. All the while, the clock is ticking on Bartolo. And if Marco somehow makes it out alive, his life will be changed forever.
