The 15th One Book One Valley community read program will hold its Big Event, an evening with featured author Paul Doiron, on Thursday, October 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the newly renovated Majestic Theatre in Conway Village. This event will also be live-streamed.
For those who plan to attend in person, the Majestic Theatre is part of the Mountain Top Music Center campus located at 34 Main Street in Conway, NH. There is a parking lot behind the building, with additional parking behind the Conway Town Offices across the street. Those who need handicap parking should park behind the Music Center building and use the rear entrance ramp. As an incentive for arriving early to allow time for COVID-19 check-in at entry, Majestic Theatre volunteers will offer a cash bar with beer, wine, soft drinks and water in the theatre cafe before the program begins with proceeds going to support renovations at the theatre.
All who plan to attend the event in person will need to follow the Majestic Theatre’s vaccination policy and provide photo identification and proof of COVID-19 vaccination or of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the event. Masks will be required to be worn in the theatre’s entryway, corridors and other moving-about spaces, and at the book signing.

During the month of October, leading up to our big event with the author on October 28, many of our participating libraries are hosting a book discussion of one or all of Paul Doiron’s books in the Mike Bowditch series.
Find one online or at a library near you (or maybe one that’s further afield if you’re up for a road trip).
The 15th One Book One Valley community read program is underway. Sixteen public libraries throughout the region and White Birch Books are pleased to announce that this year the featured author is Paul Doiron, who writes the Mike Bowditch series of crime novels.
