The Concord Bookshop

Please join us at 3pm today (Sunday, May 7), when we welcome Nina Sankovitch to the Bookshop, to talk to us about "The Lowells of Massachusetts: An American Family."

This is a wonderful multi-subject narrative biography of the Lowell family - one of the most powerful families in the United States during the country’s early years.

We're looking forward to hosting Nina Sankovitch this Sunday (May 7) at 3pm, with her new multi-subject biography, "The Lowells of Massachusetts: An American Family." This is a fascinating chronicle of one of the most powerful families in the United States during the country’s early years.

Ms. Sankovitch is also the author of the memoir "Tolstoy and the Purple Chair."

May the 4th be with you!
