Author Dorothy Ours will be signing copies of her book, “Battleship,” at the Beresford Gallery (Route 82, Unionville) on Nov. 23 from noon to 5 p.m. The true story centers on a young jockey, a DuPont heiress, who surprised the horse racing world in 1938.

Also at the gallery's open house event will be craftsman Jake Dunning, who makes custom fireplaces to order. For more information, call 610-347-1247 or visit www.beresfordgallery.com.
