Title: Shelf Awareness Contest - Description: Enter for a chance to win a signed copy of Neil Gaiman's new book!  Sponsored by the awesome newsletter, Shelf Awareness for Readers. Salutations!


This is a busy month!  Larchmere First Fridays are back, and we’ll have our favorite Brian Henke playing guitar here, and then, it’s the Larchmere Festival and Author Alley.  We have FIFTY AUTHORS participating this year, and we’re excited beyond the purple.  Please come support the writing talent in your own backyard by coming to support these great folks.  The Larchmere Festival continues to grow and get more exciting each year, too.  New this year?  Morgan Conservatory with their paper making demonstrations.  See you soon!    


First Fridays
Brian Henke
Friday, July 5, 7:00-8:30pm
~ Friday music series ~
Join the businesses of Larchmere as they celebrate the First Friday of the month by staying open late.  At Loganberry, we’ll host our favorite guitarist, Brian Henke.  Brian composes and performs his music like a painter putting images on canvas, a kind of sonic shaman, drawing his inspiration from the natural world around him.  His unique guitar style has been called everything from Folk to New Age to Neoclassical to Pastoral or, as Brian like to call it, "a big stewpot of everything stirred up, simmered, and served to taste."  His music appeals to everyone who likes their music lyrical, thought provoking and performed with virtuosity.  Through it all is an undercurrent of spirituality and mysticism that Brian says is very much a part of the creative process. Check out a sample.
Donations for the band gratefully accepted.



Larchmere Festival
Saturday, July 6, 10am-5pm

~ first Saturday in July ~




Antiques Fair & Sidewalk Sales

In keeping with Larchmere tradition, the spirit of the Larchmere Festival rests soundly with antique decorative arts.  Sublime, distinguished and well-crafted furniture and small collectibles will be featured by both merchants who have shops on the street, in addition to invited dealers who will create a mini antiques fair of quality collectibles.  Covering the sidewalks from East 130th Street to East 121st street will be traveling and guest vendors of collectibles, kitsch, and vintage goods. 


Bazaar Bizarre

Not your granny's craft fair!  The artists who comprise the popular indie Bazaar Bizarre are spunky, outrageous, and irreverent -- and so is their art.   We are pleased that this indie market will join us again in our Larchmere celebrations in a new and expanded location, and we invite you to discover the quirky, homemade kitsch that has made them famous.


Author Alley

Cleveland is proud home to many talented writers, creators, journalists, historians, and spinners of fantasy.  We will be host a mere fifty of these scribes in our annual tribute to local writers, which we dub Author Alley.  It's Festival day on Larchmere, so there's plenty to do and see, lots of networking to weave, and both new and famous authors to meet, greet, and sign books.  

Time: 12-4pm
Authors include:  Deanna Adams, Patricia Averbach, Derf Backderf,  Michelle A. Day, Michael C. DeAloia, Amanda Flower, Norm Friedman, Hermine Fuerst, David Giffels, Brian McClellan, Suzanne McGinness, Paula McLain, Chuck Mintz, James Renner, Sandy Rozelman, Mary Doria Russell, Michael Samulak, Jeremy Smith, Sam Thomas, and Mary Ann Whitley.  Full list on the AA webpage.



There are so many wonderful eateries on Larchmere, including Academy Tavern (with a new interior face lift!), Big Al’s Diner, Bon Vivant, Felice Urban Café, Flying Cranes, Jezebel Bayou, Larchmere Subs, and the Larchmere Tavern.  In addition to these, Larchmere Festival will host some of Cleveland's hippest food trucks, including Motor Mouth, Pigaliscious, Seti's Polish Boys, Polar X-press and Vick's Fries.
