    MarianneIMG_5481Zionsville resident, Marianne Doyle will be signing copies of a book she published titled Bonnie Knoll The Tale of a Home that Grew, at Black Dog Books on Saturday, September 24th from 1:00 - 3:00pm.  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 the 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.
