A bookstore is an imperfect Borgesian paradise, a place where books and readers can be beloved and comfortable.

On Sunday, May 16, author Erin Hart will read at the Haunted Bookshop from her new book, False Mermaid (Scribner, 2010).
The previous books in the Nora Gavin/Cormac Maguire mystery series, Haunted Ground and Lake of Sorrows, followed the work of an American pathologist and an Irish archaeologist investigating deaths in ...Ireland. The author's rich knowledge of Irish culture and history, combined with the taut suspense and mesmerizing atmosphere she surely mastered during her theatrical days, make each book a page-turning and vivid experience. Haunted Ground was nominated for both the Agatha and Anthony awards.
Erin Hart is not just an excellent author; she is also known for her gifts as a performer and musician. The last time she read here, she surprised us by transforming our reading space into an Irish cottage with a small peat fire. This is not a reading to miss!
