Where have we been, where are we
now and where are we going as a species? Pitched for the general reader with clarity, humor and many "aha" examples, we journey from the dawn of humanity to the current Anthropocene Era dominated by man and the religion of Humanism. While pointing out possible pitfalls in our continuing evolution (including self-extinction), Harari remains cautiously hopeful. What separates human consciousness from other species is imagination and the drive to tell stories and Science, Politics and Religion are the tools. Is consciousness simply a sophisticated series of algorithms? Will the continued development of artificial intelligence eventually put an end to the species? We are currently in the Age Of Dataism where information IS religion. Should be required reading for all. Magnificent, profound and delightfully readable. - Karen Frank

Norse Mythology
By Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales.

Paul Auster's 
greatest, most heartbreaking and satisfying novel a sweeping and surprising story of birthright and possibility, of love and of life itself: a masterpiece.

Why is everyone talking about the  ending?? Pinborough's  new novel takes the modern day love triangle and not only turns it on its head, but completely reinvents it in a way that will leave readers reeling!

Viet Thanh Nguyen's (winner 
of the 2016 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction) next fiction book,  The Refugees, is a collection of perfectly formed stories written over a period of twenty years, exploring questions of immigration, identity, love, and family. 

A closer look at the mind-bending nature of the universe from 
"The man who makes physics sexy . . . the scientist they're calling the next Stephen Hawking." --
The Times Magazine

Vermont has been blessed with many fine writers,
Rest in Peace
Howard Mosher

Northshire Bookstore has hosted some of the best. This past week,
Chris Bohjalian celebrated his 19th book,
The Sleepwalker at the store and over the years we have hosted
Galway Kinnell, John Irving, John Gardner, Archer Mayor, Julia Alvarez, Sue Halpern, and
Bill McKibben, among others.

But one of Vermont's most beloved and prolific authors was Howard Mosher, who - shockingly and sadly - died this past Sunday of cancer, surrounded by his family in his beloved Northeast Kingdom. He visited us just last fall, when he drove 3 1/2 hours each way to join the Northshire family to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Early last week, he sent out a message on Facebook to his legion of friends around the state and beyond, announcing his illness, saying he was comfortable and at peace and was so grateful to booksellers, among others, for supporting him over the years.  Just like Howard, one of the most thoughtful, generous, and insightful writers we knew, to think of others as he shared the end of life. His new book, Points North, will be published in the coming months. 

Howard, we love you.
