Title: Sidewalk SaleIt’s Sidewalk Sale time! And this time, we really do have a reason to celebrate the actual, physical sidewalks, because they’re all brand new, and they are complete!  That isn’t to say that our massive Streetscape project here on Larchmere Boulevard is finished (we’re still waiting for new permeable pavers, park benches, bike racks and decorative crosswalks), but we’re in the home stretch.  So, the whole street celebrates, and Loganberry has a 20% off book sale, as well as specials on the sidewalks, and early bird specials on 2015 calendars!  Join us, and the rest of the Larchmere crew, plus a couple food trucks, for the bargain merriment on Labor Day weekend, this Saturday, August 30, 10am-6pm.  


It’s also your last chance to enter the Guess Who contest.  Take a look inside our windows, and try to identify the authors, illustrators, and athletes represented by 30 books.  $50 goes to whomever identifies the most correctly, plus gift certificates to runners-up.

180A: Pete and Polly and their dog pippin the poodle
It is a book about Pete and Polly and their dog pippin the poodle. “It was a very hot day, I am tired of playing in this garden” sighed Pete, so am I agreed Polly, “I wish we could think of something to do” “Let’s go for a walk” sighed Pete “You promised you’d show me where the twisty path goes to” They ended up getting a key from a fish. A message was attached.. “this magic key will unlock the blue door, and that leads to Magic land, you can ride in the little red car, wherever it likes to take you. But bring back the key tomorrow without fail, or something dreadful will happen!” They rode in the car and met the three bears and a princess who had a lemonade fountain I think. The illustrations were very colourful. I Have been quoting this book to my children for years now :) Would be something wonderful to find it...  Visit the blog

Michelle Krankowski: If I Had to Say Good-bye

Saturday, August 30, 12:00PM

~ Local Voices ~

We get so caught up in our lives. Our lives can be crumbling down around us. It is our human reaction to panic, cry, and run. We're left with the feeling of helplessness. We all have been there. It's dark, cold, and isolating. We fear the unknown. It's at that moment that when God reminds us of His eternal promises.

Kyle Coma-Thompson and Justin Glanville: The Lure of the Short Story

Wednesday, September 10, 7:00PM

~ second Wednesdays ~

What is it about the short story that continually attracts writers to try their best work in this format? What lucky strike is required for the condensed and succinct form? Kyle and Justin are both Ohio natives who appreciate the writer’s rarest, hardest, most abbreviated form: the short story. Far be it from merely a student playground, the short story is the stuff of Pulitzers (John Cheever) and Nobels (Alice Munro). Come learn more from young writers who still work, read, and revere this smallest of literary masterpieces.

Stacie Murry: Godey’s Lady’s Book

Wednesday, September 17,  7:00PM

~ third Wednesdays ~

Godey’s Lady’s Book was more than just a woman’s fashion magazine. It was published for 68 years from 1830 to 1898 and, although known for its fashion plates illustrating the latest styles, the magazine dealt with women’s issues of the 19th century. It also had a wealth of stories and poems by famous writers. It was edited by a woman, Sarah Josepha Hale, from 1837-1877. We will examine its contents and its influence on American culture of the time, and also look at some precursors to the magazine.  Stacie Murry has worked in the Ingalls Library of The Cleveland Museum of Art for 30 years. She has an M.A. in Art History from CWRU. She has had a lifelong interest in fashion history and now gives vintage fashion presentations to local groups.


Live Music

Red Brick Rhoades

Thursday, September 18, 7:00PM

~ third Thursdays ~

Singer-songwriter, Red Chrosniak, learned guitar to make his habit of doodling lyrics on old envelope backs both productive and sustainable. Far from her native prairie, Becca Rhoades lends her improvisational fiddling skills and a little of her Texas drawl to the songs he writes. Red and Becca started playing together upon discovering their shared love of heart-free dancing, getting lost, and making both mischief and music. Their voices create a sweet lyrical blend with the fiddle harmonies and their onstage chemistry is often augmented with cheeky interplay. Red Brick Rhoades offers original songs about the permutations of love, the trials and tribulations of life, and the joys of moonlight, moonshine, and being moonstruck.

Madeleine L' Engle: A Wrinkle In Time

Wednesday, September 24, 7:00PM

~ fourth Wednesdays ~

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.  "Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract".  Meg's father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time travel when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space?  Discussion led by Susan Petrone.


Live Music

Gene’s Jazz Hot

Thursday, September 25, 7:00PM

~ fourth Thursdays ~

Our favorite house band kicks up some lively tunes at the end of September. They play other venues in town, we know, but we still think they sound best surrounded by books. Gene Epstein on bass, Bill Kenny on clarinet, Reed Simon on violin, and Kevin Richards on guitar. We dare you not to tap your toes. Donations for the band appreciated.


Looking Ahead  

Spectral Sundays with Justin Glanville and Christine Borne

Sunday, October 5—26, 1:00PM

~ four Sundays in October ~

Get into the Halloween spirit with this weekly reading series during the month of October! Each Sunday, we’ll take turns reading a ghost story aloud, then have an open discussion of its themes and how and why it scares us. Selections may range from the antiquarian chillers of M.R. James to the more contemporary thrills of Kelly Link. Moderated by Justin Glanville and Christine Borne.  


Thanks, and happy reading,
