The appt.el part of the calendar/diary application that's built into
emacs can certainly do that. See e.g.


but instead of using Russell's settings

| ; Setup zenify, we tell appt to use window, and replace default function
| (setq appt-display-format 'window)
| (setq appt-disp-window-function (function my-appt-disp-window))


--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq appt-display-format 'echo)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

or use the default setting of appt-disp-window-function which displays
in an emacs window.
