Bookstore Events Manager Scores Spot on New Hampshire Magazine’s ‘It List’

RiverRun Bookstore events manager Michele Filgate has earned a spot on New Hampshire Magazine’s ‘It List‘ for her unexpected contribution to a Pulitzer Prize win. She joins corporate executives, an actor, and a judge on the prestigious list.

When Paul Harding won the Pulitzer Prize for Tinkers,  Filgate  found out she had played a role in the win. It’s an inspiring story, showing how indie publishers and booksellers touch readers every day.

Check it out: “It could be a plot line in a book, though it does stretch credulity a bit. An indie bookstore employee reads a little-known book that becomes her favorite book ever. Soon after she’s at a book reviewers workshop and mentions the book (nay, sings its praises) to the workshop leader. It just so happens the workshop leader is the chairwoman of that year’s Pulitzer Prize jury in the fiction category. The book wins the Pulitzer.”
