Dog Ears Bookstore, located at 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo, has scheduled four book-signing events during the month of February.
On Sunday, Feb. 3, Dog Ears will host a book-signing with local financial planner Amy Jo Lauber, author of “Living Inspired and Financially Empowered: Aligning Our Spiritual and Material Lives,” from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
At 11 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 10, visitors have an opportunity to meet Nicholas and Zoie Kin, authors of “How to Make a Butterfly From Scratch.” Also on hand will be the book’s illustrator, Jessica Saddleson.
Tim Shannon, author of “Da’s Shillelagh — A Tale of the Irish on the Niagara Frontier,” will sign at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15. Shannon’s sixth book, “Da’s Shillelagh” is the story of an Irish family struggling to survive during the turbulent years of early Western New York.
And at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, Charlie Schmidtke will sign copies of “Riding the Subway with Heidi: A Father's Journey of Grieving.” The book provides a new perspective on what it means to grieve, debunks cultural myths that actually hinder grieving, and shows how to integrate the process of grieving into your new grief-filled life. With a focus on finding balance, health and meaning in life rather than chasing “closure,” “moving on“ or “going through stages,” this book helps makes sense of the grieving process.
