I'll try not to make heat jokes, since I'm sure you've noticed it's summer.  Do you have a good novel to read by the pool and pocket histories to take on your travels?  'Tis the season of house cleaning too, and I assure you there are new offerings here at Loganberry daily, although it's hard to sum them up in an email....

Our Native Trees and How to Identify Them
by Harriet L. Keeler, 1900
Saturday, July 23, 1:00-3:00pm
Our Native Trees and How to Identify Them, written by Cleveland educator, feminist, and naturalist Harriet L. Keeler (1844–1921) and first published by Charles Scribner’s Sons in 1900, was warmly received at a time when America was rapidly urbanizing and public interest in conservation and the establishment of parks was growing. In her preface, Keeler explained that “the trees described . . . are those indigenous to the region extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains and from Canada to the northern boundaries of the southern states; together with a few well-known and naturalized foreign trees.” Profusely illustrated and with a biographical introduction by Carol Poh Miller that illuminates Keeler’s life and accomplishments, this facsimile edition will aid a new generation eager to identify and thus better appreciate what they observe outdoors.

Stump the BooksellerI76: Izzy
Okay...this book I read when I was about the late 80's. I think it may have been written in the late 70's/early 80's.  The book takes place in the 1920's and focuses around this young girl (i want to say her name was Izzy...but I could be wrong). I remember in the book she had an older sister who was a flapper, and there was some talk about prohibition. The girl used to play on the train tracks a lot, and I think she would bring a male friend with her. I remember one part of the book where they get caught on the tracks and the train comes.  They're on a bridge so they climb under the tracks and hold on until the train goes by. This was one of my favorite books when I was a kid, I remember the cover was bright pink. I've been thinking about it a lot lately and would love to read it again. Thank you so much!

The Women of Bohemian Greenwich Village and Harlem, 1913-1930
by Andrea Barnet
Book Club so enjoyed Andrea Barnet's history of the artists and writers of NYC, that this month we've decided to read a biography of one of those wild women featured.  Your choice:  read something about Mina Loy, Bessie Smith, Ethel Waters, Edna St. Vincent Millay, Margaret Anderson, Emma Goldman, Isadora Duncan, Margaret Sanger, Gertrude Stein, etc., and tell us about her.

LitArts Progress
The Literary Arts room has made great progress since its opening six months ago.  Books fill the four walls, and new rugs, tables, and chairs make the space cozy for browsing, receptions, lectures, and special events.  The floor needs painting though, for consistency and warmth, and that Loganberry trademark.  I'm not exactly sure of the schedule, but July will be work month. First, we have to move a small mountain of boxes, then clean the floors, prime, paint, and glaze.  If you want to help out, we'll be working every Thursday night in July, 6-9pm.  I'll provide pizza and drinks, and you can buy anything at 50% off and/or accumulate book credit.  RSVPs are most helpful.  Thanks.
