2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Garden Spells
Woodbourne Library
Community Room

Join us for a discussion of Garden Spells (2007-Fiction) by Sarah Addison Allen. Booklist "Starred Review": Take a pinch of marigold to stimulate affection, add a dash of snapdragon to repel evil influences, finish with a generous helping of rose petals to encourage love, then stand back and let nature take its course … Spellbinding and charming, Allen's impressively accomplished debut novel will bewitch fans of Alice Hoffman and Laura Esquivel, as her entrancing brand of magic realism nimbly blends the evanescent desires of hopeless romantics with the inherent wariness of those who have been hurt once too often.

290 pages, 4.07/5 stars (out of 78,652 ratings on Goodreads). Copies of the book will be distributed to attendees at the July discussion, and limited copies will be available at the Woodbourne Front Desk after the discussion. Those needing special accommodations should contact the Library in advance at 435-3700.

Author Event: Lost Dayton Ohio with Andrew J. Walsh

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Edible Flower Power
Woodbourne Library
Community Room

Many of the places that helped make Dayton a center of innovation were lost to history, while others survived and adapted, representing the city's spirit of revitalization. Some of the city's distinctive and significant structures, such as Steele High School and the Callahan Building, were demolished, while others, including the Arcade and Centre City Building saw hard times but now await redevelopment. Entire neighborhoods, such as the Haymarket, and commercial districts, such as West Fifth Street, vanished and show no traces of their past. Join author Andrew J. Walsh as he discusses his book Lost Dayton Ohio, c. 2018, and explores the diverse selection of retail, industrial, entertainment, and residential sites from Dayton's disappearing legacy. The program is free, but registration is required to ensure adequate seating.
