Frank Bill writes tough, gritty fiction that is informed by his experiences living in southern Indiana. Economic hard times have taken their toll on that region. As the manufacturing base has declined some folks have out of desperation resorted to committing crimes. Bill's first book was "Crimes in Southern Indiana," a collection of short stories that showed that this author is a rising force. The man can really write.
Elaine Pereira, author of the award winning memoir I Will Never Forget-A Daughter's Story of Her Mother's Arduous and Humorous Journey Through Dementia, will be at the Dayton Book Expo, along with other accomplished authors, Saturday April 27th 11-4. The Expo takes place at the David H. Ponitz Conference Center; 444 West Third Street; Dayton, Ohio 45402.
