Tipsheet: Cast a 'Shadow'
If you don't come see the author of "Shadow Baby," then we'll have six more weeks of winter. Well, not really. But versatile author Alison McGhee, who speaks at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Rochester Public Library, is still worth seeing. She'll give a talk on her books, including "Shadow Baby," which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize, and her poetry and children's books. Find her in the library auditorium, 101 Second St. S.E.
