Spend an evening with mystery author
The Hudson Library and Historical Society will welcome Agatha-nominated mystery author Amanda Flower March 5 at 7 p.m. Flower will discuss her newest book, "A Plain Scandal," the second book in the Appleseed Creek mystery series set in Ohio's Amish Country.
Flower started her writing career in elementary school when she read a story she wrote to her sixth grade class and had the class in stitches with her description of being stuck on the top of a Ferris wheel. She knew at that moment she'd found her calling of making people laugh with her words. Her debut mystery, "Maid of Murder," was an Agatha Award Nominee for Best First Novel. Flower is an academic librarian for a small college near Cleveland. She also writes mysteries as Isabella Alan.
Registration is not required. For more information, call 330-653-6658 ext. 1010 or visit hudsonlibrary.org.

Book Club in a Bar meets tomorrow
On Feb. 28, the Learned Owl Book Shop's Book Club in a Bar will be meeting at Zeppe's (5843 Darrow Rd, Hudson). Join us at 7 p.m. to discuss Stealing Mona Lisa by Carson Morton. Based on the actual theft of the Mona Lisa from the Louvre in 1911, Stealing Mona Lisa is a sophisticated, engaging caper, complete with a richly imagined group of con artists and a historical mystery that will keep you guessing until the very end.
Book Club in a Bar is a (very) casual book group that meets at a local watering hole every month. Feel free to drop in - there are no rules for this group, just good fun. For more information and to purchase Stealing Mona Lisa, visit the Learned Owl Book Shop (204 N. Main St, Hudson).
For more information, contact the Learned Owl Book Shop at 330-653-2252.
