Tucson Festival of Books

Sally will be volunteering at the Tucson Festival of Books.  Click here to let her know you are attending and would like to meet up with her!  Third largest Book Festival in the United States, held at the University of Arizona Campus, 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM.

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Tucson Festival of Books was cancelled.

Now and during the ensuing months, I share my heart with everyone. I feel for those who have lost loved ones to this stealth disease. I feel deep gratitude for those who risk their own lives in the medical community and first responders and those providing essential services while the rest of us are staying sheltered. I am grateful for my family, friends and neighbors as we all watch out for each other financially, spiritually and emotionally. If there ever was a time to love, this is it.

Brutus Presentation at The Ohio State Alumni Club of Southern Arizona

What do Alumni Clubs do during a Bye Week? They hold their annual potluck picnic featuring prime rib marinated in the co-hosts’ secret sauce and cooked in a mammoth outdoor rotisserie in a gorgeous foothills setting. After the meal, Sally will present the history of her “son” Brutus Buckeye. For more information or to RSVP, contact the club president Frank Ramirez,

“Sally Lanyon is a Tucson alumni club member and told the story how she and another student Ray Bourhis created Brutus Buckeye in early 60’s. She also published story with colorful photos in Brutus Buckeye book seen in lower left corner… a very interesting history. “~Dorothy
