Local Author Event

by Laurel | July 17th, 2009

One of the many surnames of interest to me on my “About/Contact” page above is Daunheimer, found in both Holyoke and South Hadley. I received notice from the Odyssey book store in South Hadley of a reading and book signing with James Daunheimer, South Hadley native and author of Beyond Focus. Looks like an interesting book, you can read more about the book at this link. The event is Sunday, July 19 at 3 p.m., contact the Odyssey for more information at 413-534-7307
