To round out the week of Daily Author Posts, we featured Ted Gup, the investigative reporter with a personal book about a family secret connected to Canton, The Secret Gift. We're providing you with a link to a video on the making of the book, which is to say, the unearthing of the secret of the suitcase:

Yesterday, we had a famous story from The Canton Repository's Tim Botos:

Wednesday we highlighted a local mystery author, Julie Lindsey:
