Novalima

8:00 PM - Bethlehem

Fusing traditional Latin rhythms with Afro-Peruvian beats, Novalima is a one-of a-kind collective from Peru. Since its formation in 2001, Novalima has been breaking down boundaries, uniting seemingly irreconcilable genres, communities and generations to create an inspiring movement that has revolutionized the music scene in their native country. The energetic 8-piece Latin Grammy nominated band incorporate a wide range of cultural influences into its upbeat Afro-Peruvian music bringing in influences from its musical cousins reggae, dub, salsa, hip-hop, Afrobeat and Cuban son. The result is a revolutionary and modern approach to Afro-Peruvian music and a powerful and inspiring live show. In one evening, Novalima will transport you to a basement club in Brooklyn, a street salsa party in the Caribbean, a smoky Cuban club and even a pumping disco in Rio through their world-centric sound. We couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to the sultry, lean, funky configuration that gets the room grooving along.

Gibson's Book Club reads All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr

7:00 PM - Concord

Our book club is open to all. We've chosen an eclectic, ambitious list of books for the coming year: join us for every meeting, or deal yourself in as the spirit moves you. Gibson's Book Club reads All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr Monday, July 6, at 7 PM The most acclaimed and beloved novel of the season, the instant national bestseller--"hauntingly beautiful" ("The New York Times"), "incandescent, luminous...enthralling" ("O, The Oprah Magazine"). Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris, and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure's reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. They carry with them what might be the museum's most valuable and dangerous jewel. In a German town, an orphan named Werner grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find. Werner's expertise wins him a place at a brutal academy for Hitler Youth, then a special assignment to track the Resistance. Increasingly aware of the human cost of his intelligence, Werner travels through the heart of the war and into Saint-Malo, where his story and Marie-Laure's converge. Anthony Doerr's "stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors" ("San Francisco Chronicle)" are dazzling. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, he illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is a "beautiful, daring, heartbreaking, oddly joyous novel" ("The Seattle Times").

"Intimate Exchanges" by Alan Ayckbourn at the Peterborough Players

4:00 PM - Peterborough

Intimate Exchanges- A comedy by Alan Ayckbourn. This surprising comedy by Ayckbourn, the master of the form, was nominated for London’s prestigious Olivier Award and New York’s Drama Desk Award. The New York Times called it an “abundant buffet of domestic comedy.” The idea is simple: at many junctions in life we are faced with either/or decisions, and the consequences can be vastly different. Ayckbourn’s comedy of chance leaves its outcome to the audience. 10 characters are played by two actors, and you choose how the comedy works out. If you don’t like the ending, you have no one to blame but yourself! Rated PG-13 July 1 - July 12, 2015 7:30 PM Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday Evenings 8:00 PM Friday and Saturday Evenings 4:00 PM Sunday Afternoons www.playerstix.com Box Office: 603-924-7585
