September 24th, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at Black Dog Books, 115 S. Main Street in Zionsville

BK Cover96b

Zionsville resident, Marianne Doyle will be signing copies of a book she published titled Bonnie Knoll, at Black Dog Books this Saturday, September 24th from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.


Bonnie Knoll is the remarkable and authentic story of Marianne and Guinn Doyle’s beautiful Civil War era home that sits upon a hill in Zionsville’s village. The story comes from a manuscript by previous owner, Grace Monroe, who lived in the house from 1922 to 1963. It recounts the Monroe’s restoration, remodeling, interior design, farm-to-table cooking, gardening and urban homesteading while at Bonnie Knoll. It resonates with warmth and wit. Bonnie Knoll is a jewel about a Zionsville home that continues its history with the Doyles as its present owners.

Please call 317 733-1747 to reserve your copy.

Refreshments will be served.

Book Problems Solved!

Split Before

Before — an email from a customer: “I just received a new book in damaged condition. This book is put out by a press in Budapest, Hungary and it is difficult and expensive to obtain. I am planning to use this book often as a reference text, and I want a secure binding that will last.”

Split After

After — “I just wanted to tell you again how pleased I am with this work. I’ve been using the book and it is very well done. And what a great job on saving the inside cover with the diagrams. Much appreciated.” – Peter M.
