TODAY! Susan Amari with A Calculated Guess (Dec. 3)

Meet Susan Amari, author of the novel A Calculated Guess. This is the story of two college friends who meet again at a 40-year college reunion and unwittingly become part of each other's plan for a last-chance start over. Their reunion leads to the death of a woman on an Ohio road and a lingering question: Was it a random occurrence or a predictable casualty of the past?

Hudson's Holiday Walk (Dec. 4)

December 4th is the Annual Holiday Walk in downtown Hudson, when the town kicks off the holiday season with refreshments, decorations and a heaping helping of holiday spirit! Be sure to stop at The Owl to get your raffle tickets for our "major award", the coveted leg lamp ($1 each, or 7 tickets for $5, or bring in 2 food items for The Landing, an Akron Food Bank, for one raffle ticket). And join us from 1 to 3 PM to meet and greet our guest authors, Irv Korman and Ruth Kim.

Irv Korman, actor, writer, theatre critic, clown and magician, has written two books about his celebrity encounters (I Was Jerry Lewis' Bodyguard for 10 Minutes... and Other Celebrity Encounters and I Was Jackie Mason's Chauffeur for 5 Minutes... and More Celebrity Encounters) and two children's books. Citytown Christmas Conundrum is the story of several children with no place to go on Christmas who learn to give a part of themselves to others for the best Christmas ever. His newest book, Antuan Was Hear: 30 Years of Kids' Quotes, is sure to be a hit as well. 

Hudson author and well-known designer and seamstress Ruth Kim will be back with her book One Penny On Top of Another: A Korean Immigrant's Journey from Poverty to Wealth. The book is not only an interesting look into her early life, but also a helpful manual for improving health and financial balance that you won't find elsewhere. Read about how to save money, reap the health benefits of many vegetables, and overcome financial hardships. A perfect gift for yourself and for a holiday gift for loved ones!
