What's Great in Dayton: September 23 - October 4, 2012

Book lovers and bargain hunters….the Big Fall Booksale is scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Hara Arena. There will be loads of books, movies, music CDs, tapes and more. Sale hours are 4:00-8:00 p.m. Friday, 10:00 a.m. - 7:00p.m. Saturday, and 1:00-3:00 p.m. Sunday. Admission and parking are Free.

Join Zoot Theatre in Middle Earth as they tell the tale of Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit who is as much like the rest of us: he would rather sit at home and avoid any kind of adventures. When the wizard Gandalf and his company of 13 dwarves make a surprise visit, Bilbo is dragged unwittingly into an adventure that includes goblin dodging, battles and dragons slaying. This is J.R.R. Tolkien's masterpiece brought to life as only Zoot can do! Opens on Friday at the DAI.

The 10th annual Chocolate Festival is Saturday 10 am to 5 pm, at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds Coliseum. Free admission, free parking, family friendly, live entertainment, door prizes, kids activities, and chocolate everything! Theme is 'Chocolate Bonanza!' (attendance last year topped 4,000). Chocolate for sale and free chocolate samples.

My wife, Molly D. Campbell has written a book titled "Characters In Search of a Novel" and a book reviewer says “It is a charming collection of fascinating character portraits from small town America. It celebrates an originality of spirit and eccentricity that is refreshing, especially in our cynical, pop culture saturated age. She displays keen insight and shrewd humor in depicting these quirky characters that, we hope, will secure their own prospective novels. The character illustrations by Randy Palmer are inspired.”

Gotta go….
Charlie, the end of September, Campbell
