More things to do this weekend:

Dorothy H. Killackey, author or "Musings" February 01, 2013 at 10:43 PM
That was so great to read your "bulletin" about my book-signing of "Musings". I'm an 85 year old author and having an adventure signing and selling my book. I will be on the panel of "Meet the Authors Evening" at the Mahopac Library, Feb. 6, at 5:30. Would love to meet you there. Dorothy Killackey
