MANCHESTER — A slate of best-selling authors will be appearing in virtual events hosted by the Northshire Bookstore on its website this month.

The series started last Thursday with Steve Sheinkin, a three-time National Book Award finalist and author of the Newbery Honor book Bomb. He joined in the conversation, held remotely over the Zoom platform, to talk about his most recent book, Born to Fly and his current work in progress.

The series will continue this month with appearances by four best-selling authors, all on Thursdays at 5 p.m. The sessions can be accessed at A direct link and more information are available at

- Janice Shade, the author of "Moving Mountains: The Power of Main Street Americans to Change Our Economy" will appear at 5 p.m. Thursday. Shade's new book uses storytelling and humor to deliver a history and expose of the inequities of start-up capital markets, tell stories of women entrepreneurs' quests for capital, and offers steps to align your spending and your values.

- New York Times bestselling author Julia Spencer-Fleming is scheduled to appear at 5 p.m. Thursday, April 16, just in time for the publication of the long-awaited ninth installment of her Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne mystery series, "Hid from Our Eyes," set in nearby Washington County, N.Y.

- At 5 p.m. on Thursday, April 23, authors TaraShea Nesbit and Kim Van Alkemade are scheduled to discuss their writing. Nesbit, the author of "The Wives of Los Alamos," will discuss her highly anticipated new novel "Beheld" —the riveting story of a stranger's arrival in the fledgling colony of Plymouth, Massachusetts — and a crime that shakes the community to its core. Van Alkemade, the author of the bestselling historical novels "Orphan #8" and "Bachelor Girl," will discuss her work.
