Our good friends, Lisa Christie (who works at most of the Norwich Bookstore author events) and Lisa Cadow (who worked as a bookseller prior to moving to France for a stretch) have a wonderful blog for readers, The Book Jam.

We partner with them to get to know the authors who are speaking at the bookstore and in the Upper Valley through "3 Questions" - interviews that are posted on the blog just prior to the events.


nbi interiorThe Norwich Bookstore has been a vibrant member of the Upper Valley community since 1994, offering a thoughtful selection of books, toys, games, cards, gift-wrap, and other treasures for curious minds.

Keeping current with the times, the Norwich Bookstore now offers eBooks through its ever expanding website, norwichbookstore.com. Gift cards purchased at the store or on-line may be used toward electronic books for your iPad or Nook, as well print books or items in the store.

The Norwich Bookstore continually works with many local schools and supports numerous not-for-profit arts and service organizations through discounts, fund-raising, and donations. Our Book Angel program runs mid-November to mid-December and delivers holiday books to over 300 under-served children in the region.

Hosting frequent author events is one of the most exciting parts of the Norwich Bookstore’s mission to provide a place for writers and readers to gather. In addition to the eclectic lineup of speakers in the store, we enjoy partnering with others such as Dartmouth College and the Center for Cartoon Studies to bring authors to the area.

The dozen or so booksellers at the Norwich Bookstore are omnivorous readers across a broad range of subjects including fiction, mystery, biography, adventure, gardening, cooking, and of course, children’s literature.

(Just two miles from the Dartmouth Green, and less than one mile from the exit 13 on I91, the Norwich Bookstore is easy to reach and parking is free.)
