On Monday, May 23rd at 11:30AM, author Jeffrey Zaslow was the featured guest at the 25th annual Plymouth-Canton-Novi-Northville Book and Author Luncheon, sponsored by the Friends of the Canton Public Library.
Tickets were available at any of the four libraries for $25, from April 15-May 15, for the luncheon at Fox Hills Golf and Banquet Center, while supplies lasted.
Jeffrey Zaslow was a columnist for the Wall Street Journal, and author or co-author of three best-selling books:
Gloryland is the fictional memoir of a buffalo soldier — a black U.S. cavalryman and the son of slaves — who finds true freedom when he is posted to patrol the newly created Yosemite National Park in 1903.
Dave Richards, a library assistant and a freelance writer for the Eisner Award winning website, Comic Book Resources, moderates. Dave has completed an unpublished science fiction mystery novel and is currently writing a horror novel.

Join us on Friday, April 29th from 2:00-4:00(PM!) for an Afternoon Tea. We'll dish about the Royal Wedding while eating wedding cake donated by the Back Home Bakery along with other goodies provided by the Friends of the Canton Public Library.
Fellow Royal Watchers, it will be too, too delightful to sip tea in our Purple Room decorated with wedding finery from "I Do", Too! Bridal.
Do say you'll come.
The group's 2011-2012 book discussion titles and dates will be available on the Canton Public Library book clubs' website in August.
If you or someone you know is a 'hacker' in a special field; if you have ingenious and/or unconventional workarounds and solutions, then consider doing a presentation or having a demo table at Hack Day. Time slots and planning discussion can be found at the Hack Day CantonWiki page. For any questions, please contact Brad Czerniak at email@example.com.
Dr. Craig Perdue will talk about behavioral ecology on Thursday, April 21, 3:00-4:30PM, in a presentation entitled "Bird Ancestors, Adaptations and Conversation."
