Crazy, With the Papers to Prove It: Stories About the Most Unusual, Eccentric and Outlandish People I've Known in 45 Years as a Sports Journalist
Dan Coughlin is not crazy, but for 45 years he covered sports in Cleveland, which means he lived life under a full moon. In this book, the award-winning Plain Dealer and WJW-TV reporter reflects on the most unusual, eccentric and outlandish people and events he covered. “I never met a wacko I didn't like,” Coughlin says. Not only did he write about them, they became his lifelong friends. Every day was an adventure, but it wasn't all laughs; some of his boxers went to jail, his softball players got shot, his race car drivers were killed. Luckily, Coughlin kept notes! Any Cleveland sports fan will enjoy meeting these memorable characters. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.

One Day By David Nicholls
Dexter and Emma know vaguely of one another throughout college, and then spend graduation night in each others’ arms. It is July 15th and the book unfolds as annual snapshots of that date. Their lives come together and drift apart over the passing years: Dex and Em are together as best friends on some anniversary days; on others, they have not spoken in months. One thing stays constant: their thoughts of “Em and Dex, Dex and Em” as they spend their lives working through their feelings and deciding what each really means to the other.

Here is a free guide to the most accurate financial aid, scholarship and student loan information on the Internet.
