A book-signing event and a new session of the popular Puppy Tales program will take place at Dog Ears Bookstore & Café, located at 688 Abbott Road, Buffalo.
Bill Donohue, author of “Himself — A Civil War Veteran’s Struggle with Rebels, Brits and Devils,” will visit Dog Ears at 6 p.m. Friday, March 13, for a book-signing event. Published by Buffalo Heritage Press, “Himself” tells the story of Patrick Donohue, the author’s great-grandfather who was raised in Buffalo’s First Ward in the mid-1800s. He and his brother John fought with Grant’s Army of the Potomac in some of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. Both were wounded, with Patrick spending eight months in Confederate prisons.
