   Books, furnishings and other contents from the suburban Detroit home of the late author Elmore Leonard are being sold at a three-day estate sale. The sale at the home in Oakland County's Bloomfield Township runs Thursday through Saturday. A listing on the website EstateSales.net says items include first edition "and/or signed books, furniture, lamps, linens, rugs, garden accessories, outdoor furniture and more."

      Leonard died Aug. 20 at age 87 from complications of a stroke he suffered weeks earlier.       Leonard won an honorary National Book Award in 2012, and fans made best-sellers out of pretty much every one of his books since 1985's "Glitz." Hollywood adapted his work into dozens of movies and TV shows, including the films "Out of Sight" and "Get Shorty."      His home is being sold separately.
