The Loveland Museum Center is excited to offer a series of sessions with local authors who will share their stories and sign your copies of their books. We have eight authors signed up beginning June 13th and ending October 17th. All sessions are free and will be Sunday afternoons, 1:30-2:30 inside the museum. The Museum Gift Shop carries some of the books, but all will be available on the day the authors are here.
Don Tassone looks to the year 2055, to tell the story of a new pope in Francesca. It's Jessica Simon, an American, a wife and a mother. She has taken the name Francesca. She believes the Catholic Church must return to Jesus' teachings, but powerful forces are aligned against her. Will Pope Francesca succeed in renewing the Church? In an hour of darkness, can she rekindle the light?

John Kachuba visits more than 30 legendary haunted places in Ohio (including the Loveland Castle) in Ghosthunting Ohio: On the Road Again. All of these sites are open to the public--so you can test your own ghost hunting skills, if you dare. In Shapeshifters: A History, there is something about a shapeshifter-a person who can transform into an animal-that captures our imagination. The myths and magic surrounding shapeshifters are brought vividly to life.
Nancy Broermann, manager of the Tri-State Archives, and head archivist of the Ursulines of Cincinnati at Ursula Academy and co-author of Maria Longworth Storer: From Music and Art to Popes and Presidents.

Reservations required: $10 for members; $15 for non-members. Send check and name(s) to LMC, 201 Riverside Ave; Loveland, Oh 45140. Or use PayPal.
Although Christmas in Loveland will be celebrated three days, LMC will only participate on Saturday. We will be looking for music groups, planning for crafts in the cabin and possibly have the mini train again. Dick Shaver has agreed to set up his model train in the NFC Gallery and play conductor of a passenger train each weekend, beginning Thanksgiving weekend. Plans are ongoing, but we will need help on that day and if you have ideas for entertainment, please let our program chairman, Sue Peterson know.
