January 2023

We hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday season. The store was filled with its traditional bustle; a unique energy that the three of us have come to know and love since we were children. The bookstore is a magical place that embodies the holiday spirit, and whether you are a new or returning customer, that magic is present as soon as you enter the building.

As we embark on the new chapter that is 2023, we must acknowledge Clark French for his belief and trust in us to carry on the unique legacy established by the Morrow Family forty-seven years ago.

This year marked our first season no longer as customers, but as proprietors. It is a role that we have embraced to the fullest and hold in the highest regard. We could not be more grateful to our team members in Manchester and Saratoga Springs for their continued patience and support during this transition. We learn more and more from them every day.

It was such a joy to see so many new and familiar faces pass through our doors this season. It is the continued loyalty of our customers that has always sustained the Northshire and will continue to allow us to thrive for years to come.

In closing, we leave you with this quote from Neil Gaiman:

“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.”

Happy New Year!

Featured Release

The powerful story of an inspiring doctor who made a difference, by helping to create a program to care for Boston’s homeless community—by the Pulitzer Prize–winning, New York Times bestselling author of Mountains Beyond Mountains

“I couldn’t put Rough Sleepers down. I am left in awe of the human spirit and inspired to do better.”—Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for Stone

"A profound portrayal of humble heroism. For decades, Dr. Jim O'Connell and his medical team have aided the homeless of Boston with compassion and without judgment. The humanity of the doctors, nurses, and especially the ravaged people on the streets shine in this testament to our innate potential for good." — Reviewed by Mike Hare

Pre-order Highlight

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2023 by TIMEThe Seattle TimesGood Housekeeping, Today.com, Southern Living, and CrimeReads

The riveting new novel from the author of the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award finalist The Great Believers

"A well-known podcaster and film professor returns to her high school to teach a two-week course. She is immediately drawn back into the events surrounding the murder of a classmate twenty years prior. Her strong suspicion that the wrong man was convicted sets in motion a re-examination of everything that happened on the night of the girl's murder and everyone who knew her. Engrossing, surprising and very smart, Makkai's latest is a showcase for her abundant skills as a storyteller and observer of cultural trends. Highly recommended." — Reviewed by Stan Hynds
