ASHLAND – Have you ever finished a book only to find yourself full of questions? What inspired the story? Did the husband do it? Is she going to live? Will there be a sequel? Now’s your chance to find out!
This fall the Friends of the Ashland Public Library in Ashland are inviting the public to bid on the opportunity to ask 55 best-selling and award-winning
