RiverRun is only an hour north of Boston, which means that we've become a literary hotspot for author tours. We host over 100 events a year, and feature authors at our store and in bigger off-site venues around town. We're proud to partner with The Music Hall, South Church, the Portsmouth Public Library, and other community leaders to bring interesting and important authors to seacoast New Hampshire.
If you can't make it to one of our many readings, order a signed copy! We can even get it personalized for you if you want. And check out our Gallery page for photos from past events.

Except for the side effects of an experimental wartime truth serum, his ex-boyfriend, and the impossibility of being a father--and all of the other secrets he keeps from his wife and his employer.
Especially the secret of the lonely grave he visits regularly in Castleview Cemetery. It holds a tragedy that won't stay gone.
