Oklahoma author Genell Dellin will be at Steve's Sundry, Books and Magazines, 2612 S. Harvard Ave., from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday to sign copies of her latest romantic novel, "Sweet Tea for Two."
Dellin, who has written more than 30 contemporary and historical romance novels, is beginning a new series about people returning to hometowns and families, and the romance that can arise from unexpected sources.
In "Sweet Tea for Two," Meri Briscoe returns to the small town of Rock Springs to open a cafe and finds a burgeoning romance with a local rancher - yet there's the very real possibility that neither her business nor her love might last.
One of hockey's greatest and most private stars, Bobby Orr, is finally telling his life story.
"Orr: My Story" will be released in October by G.P. Putnam's Sons. The former Boston Bruins defenseman and three-time Hart Trophy winner as the National Hockey League's most valuable player is promising to share some experiences he believes to be "worth putting down on paper."
According to the announcement by Putnam, Orr will reflect on his remarkable career and on his angry break from his former agent and close friend Alan Eagleson. Orr was in dire financial trouble after retiring and was among those who demanded Eagleson be removed from the NHL's Hall of Fame after he was jailed for fraud. Eagleson resigned in 1998. Orr, 64, was elected into the NHL Hall of Fame in 1979.
The publishing arm of the Harvard Medical School is planning a series of short, original e-books on work, parenting, yoga and how to be a surgeon.
The eight books from Harvard Health Publications are part of a new series, "A Harvard Medical School Guide." They will be distributed by Rosetta- Books, a digital publisher. The books have a list price of $5.99.
Titles include "Your Brain on Yoga" and "Taming Your Child's Temper Tantrums." Rosetta also publishes books by Kurt Vonnegut, Ray Bradbury and Arthur C. Clarke.
