We're surely moving toward Spring! I know we're all ready for it, that's for sure.
Please look through our calendar of events and mark the author events you want to attend in March. One of our local authors will be here on Tuesday, March 31. Many (maybe all) of you know him or his work. He's Hal McCoy, writer for the Dayton Daily News, who has been covering The Cincinnati Reds baseball team for over 50 years. He'll be discussing his book, The Real McCoy, which is a highly readable book that lets you in on the behind-the-scenes happenings in the baseball world.
Here's a glimpse into what events we have planned so far for you in April.

We encourage you to check our website often so you don't miss any new events we may have posted since the last time you looked.
We thought you'd like to know about a special book event at the University of Dayton in late March. MARY LOU QUINLAN is bringing her acclaimed one-woman show, "The God Box, A Daughter's Story," to UD at 7 pm on March 30-31 as a benefit for the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop. Books & Co. is one of the sponsors of that workshop.
This is a great show for mothers, daughters, girlfriends and book clubs. On March 30, local authors Katrina Kittle, Mary McCarty, Sharon Short and Joanne Huist Smith, will participate in a "Talk Back" after the performance. On March 31, Betsy Bombeck, Erma's daughter, will join Mary Lou on stage after the performance.
Tickets for The God Box performance range from $15-$50. For tickets, please visit tickets.udayton.edu or call 937-229-2545.
