Josie Platt: Iconic Cleveland

Wednesday, February 4, 2015, 7:00PM

~ 1st Wednesdays ~

Josie Platt, of Gritty Image Photography, has lived most of her life in Cleveland, Ohio. Having had short stints in Cincinnati and St. Louis, she has come to truly appreciate and love the “rust belt chic” of her hometown. A graduate of Case Western Reserve University and a former therapist, Ms. Platt now uses her camera to “listen” to and record the lives and community around her. She believes that photography is at its best when used as a social and anthropological medium. Iconic Cleveland is a tribute to this hard-working, resilient town. It showcases Cleveland’s industrial might, cultural strength, and quirky, lovable “self”. The images may not always be pretty-but they are real. Perhaps one might call them Imago Veritas-each image possessing its own unique bouquet.

Dave Cockley: Those Rockin' Cleveland Kids!

Saturday, February 7, 2015, 11:30AM

~ special event ~  

Did you ever get a crazy notion to jump out of bed some morning and run around Cleveland and see all the totally cool things going on in our great city? Well, five rockin' kids and their teddy bear Benjamin did just that one lovely, summer day. They saw things like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with all their favorite rockers. Then they were off to the Great Lakes Science Center where you can get right up next to the lunar module that went to the Moon or even try on a space suit. How about taking a ride on the Goodtime III ship down the Cuyahoga River and into Lake Erie? Maybe you’d like to create art in the Art Museum’s cool new Gallery One for kids or check out a huge dinosaur that lived millions and millions of years ago around the corner at the Museum of Natural History. Or how about a wonderful day at the Zoo with the lions and tigers and bears, oh my. But if you can’t do all that, open this book and five cute kids will show you all their favorite places!

Mark Stillman, M.D.: The Writings of George Crile, Sr. & Harvey Cushing

Wednesday, February 18, 2015, 7:00PM

~ third Wednesdays ~  

The hundredth anniversary of the opening of the First World War finds us with no living participants who witnessed the “incomprehensible experience of war.”  The Great War set the stage for virtually all the wars that followed in the 20th and 21st centuries.  It also left  a generation of survivors who were in some way damaged, if not physically, then psychologically.  Two famous Clevelanders volunteered to participate for the Allied cause, George Crile Sr. and Harvey Cushing, eminent surgeons who went on to establish a new world order in the field of Medicine. Both witnessed two ailments we now commonly accept, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Complex Region Pain Syndrome. This talk reviews their memoirs of the Great War and how these writings reflect their individual humanity.

C.S. Lewis: The Screwtape Letters

Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 7:00PM

~ fourth Wednesdays ~

A masterpiece of satire, this classic has entertained and enlightened readers the world over with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life from the vantage point of Screwtape, a senior tempter in the service of "Our Father Below." At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C. S. Lewis gives us the correspondence of the worldly-wise old devil to his nephew Wormwood, a novice demon in charge of securing the damnation of an ordinary young man. The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging and humorous account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written. Discussion led by Susan Petrone.  Next book pick: Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.


Our Twentieth Anniversary year continues.  Sorry for the late e-newsletter, can we claim exhaustion?  Hope to see you soon, and do tell us about the good books on your reading horizons.


Thanks, and happy reading,
