Keep watch for info on the book signing
later this summer!
Waldameer Park overlooks Lake Erie in
northwestern Pennsylvania. This area has been
a popular retreat for people since opening
As one of the last surviving "trolley parks" in
America, Waldameer Park has a story of growth
and survival. Originally, the park's main
attraction was its beach on the lake; it was a
popular destination in Erie for people to go and
escape the heat of summer.
Over the years, Waldameer Park changed
significantly. In the early 20th century, rides
like Dip the Dips, Ravine Flyer, and Mill Run
grew to be the main attractions at the park.
Over the past three decades, Waldameer Park
has grown into a modern amusement park,
while maintaining its beloved nostalgic atmosphere.
Today, visitors cool off in the Water World water
park and enjoy thrill rides like the Comet, Steel
Dragon, X-scream, and Ravine Flyer II.

The Personal MBA by Josh Kaufman
June's choice is Miracles Happen: The Life
and Timeless Principles of the Founder of
Mary Kay Inc. by Mary Kay Ash
It could be said that her legendary status
comes from creating a brand that's a
household name, or from the marvelous
marketing prowess by which she virtually
owns the color pink.
She could be lauded as one of the greatest
executives to ever lead a company.
Indeed, all of those plaudits would be true.
But what endears the late Mary Kay Ash
far beyond cosmetics, business genius,
or financial success is her role as a champion
of women. It is a role now celebrated by
four generations of women on five continents
who are part of an independent sales force
family that numbers more than one million.
In 1963, Mary Kay Ash set out to change
women's lives for the better. In 1981, she
wrote this autobiography to provide a personal
perspective on her remarkable journey

Feeding a Yen - Savoring Local
Specialties, from Kansas City to
Cuzco by Calvin Trillin
Calvin Trillin has never been a champion
of the ?continental cuisine? palaces he used
to refer to as La Maison de la Casa House.
What he treasures is the superb local specialty.
And he will go anywhere to find one.
As it happens, some of his favorite dishes
can be found only in their place of origin.
Join Trillin on his charming, funny culinary
adventures as he samples fried marlin in
Barbados and the barbecue of his boyhood
in Kansas City. Travel alongside as he hunts
for the authentic fish taco, and participates
in a ?boudin blitzkrieg? in the part of Louisiana
where people are accustomed to buying
these spicy sausages and polishing them
off in the parking lot.
In New York, Trillin even tries to use a
glorious local specialty, the bagel, to lure
his daughters back from California.
Feeding a Yen is a delightful reminder of
why New York magazine called Calvin Trillin
?our funniest food writer.?
