Author event

Dave Wedge returns to Gibson’s Bookstore virtually on March 24 at 7 p.m. to present Riding With Evil: Taking Down the Notorious Pagan Motorcycle Gang, a thrilling in-depth true story of a dangerous undercover mission to take down a gang.

Written with Ken Croke, a retired ATF agent who is the only cop to ever infiltrate the Pagans, it’s the story of how Ken became a fully patched member of the drug-dealing, white supremacist biker gang and rose to sergeant-at-arms. He witnessed beatings, drug deals, brutal assaults, and plots to bomb their rival Hells Angels, all while trying to avoid having his cover blown, survive the violent biker underworld and keep his sanity.

Garden club program

The Concord Garden Club joins Gibson’s Bookstore to present some virtual club programming on March 26 from 1 to 2 a.m., just in time for the upcoming planting season. The ground is hidden under the snow now, but soon it will be time to till the earth and sow the seeds, and to that end the Concord Garden Club is bringing in author Ellen Ecker Ogden (The New Heirloom Garden) to discuss how to prepare, plant, and maintain and heirloom food garden.

Registration is free, but required. Tickets are by donation ($0-$20) through at eventbrite.com/e/ 296282528017. Donation proceeds are split between Gibson’s Bookstore and the Concord Garden Club.

When the Concord Garden Club was founded in 1924 the first 25 members got to work. Their first project was to sponsor two memorial trees and to prune existing shrubbery around the old Dewey School. The first flower show was held in 1928, and continues to this day. In 1934, 1,700 people visited the show. Their work continues to this day.
