Nina Gibans: University Circle: Creating a Sense of Place
Wednesday, July 15, 2015, 7:00PM
The documentary that Nina Gibans and Jesse Epstein have been working on for more than 3 years is a legacy film on the history, public art and architecture of University Circle. It spans from prehistoric glaciers shaping the landscape physically and leads up to today. Many people have been eager participants or resources for the film and many area institutions contributed to it, such as the use of music from the Cleveland Institute of Music. There are more than 50 works of public art and dozens of buildings by iconic architects in the area. The film captures the experience of the 13,000 high school and college students who study in the area, the 37,000 institutional employees and 3,000,000 people who visit annually.

Red Brick Rhoades
Thursday, July 16, 2015, 7:00PM
Red and Becca met dancing and when Red asked Becca if she and her fiddle would be willing to join him at an open mic on one of his "don't love me, I'm rubbish" songs, she said yes. Unwittingly, this set in motion the transformation of more than they knew: their music, their friendship, and their lives. One open mic turned into more songs, a motorcycle ride, a kiss on the towpath, a sweet budding romance, and at last a kiss on the altar. Their love of music and each other has tied them together, and they've been singing ever since. Red Brick Rhoades just released their first full length album: This Road.

James Baldwin: Giovanni's Room
Wednesday, July 22, 2015, 7:00PM
Set in the 1950s Paris of American expatriates, liaisons, and violence, a young man finds himself caught between desire and conventional morality. With a sharp, probing imagination, James Baldwin's now-classic narrative delves into the mystery of loving and creates a moving, highly controversial story of death and passion that reveals the unspoken complexities of the human heart. Loganberry's own book discussion group, led by Susan Petrone.

Brian Henke composes and performs his music like a painter putting images on canvas, drawing his inspiration from the world around him. An avid hiker, he often brings his guitar along to create a spontaneous response to his outdoor settings. Mother Earth (Terra) as artist has given an immense living gallery from the humbling spectacle of her natural wonders to the simple, beauty of a treetop against a blue sky. Her majestic legacy and the magical feeling of awe and peace inspire the compositions of this award winning virtuosic fingerstyle guitarist.

Kevin Keating: The Captive Condition
Wednesday, July 29, 2015, 7:00PM
A seemingly idyllic Midwestern college town turns out to be a nexus of horror in this spellbinding novel—emotionally and psychologically complex, chilling and deliciously dark. When Emily Ryan is found drowned in the family pool, pumped full of barbiturates and alcohol, Emily’s lover, college professor, finds himself responsible for her twin daughters. A low-level criminal named The Gonk takes over the cottage of a reclusive elderly artist, complete with graveyard and moonshine still, and devises plans for both. His young apprentice, haunted by inner demons, seeks retribution for the professor’s wicked deeds. The town itself, buzzing into decadent life after sundown, traps its inhabitants in patterns of inexplicable behavior all the while drawing them toward a night in which the horror will reach its disturbing and inevitable conclusion.  After working as a boilermaker in the steel mills in Ohio, Kevin Keating became a professor of English and began teaching at Baldwin Wallace University and Cleveland State University. His essays and stories have appeared in more than fifty literary journals. He lives in Cleveland.

Book Launch & Signing

Paula McLain: Circling the Sun
Friday, July 31, 2015, 7:00PM
The bestselling author of The Paris Wife now turns her pen to Beryl Markham, the aviatrix. The world is 1920s Kenya, where a glamorous and decadent circle of British expats have carved out a toe-hold of civilization at the edge of the boundless frontier. Abandoned by her mother and inspired by the dangerous beauty around her, Beryl grows into a fierce young woman driven to prove her courage and win independence at any cost. She becomes the first woman to earn her license as a professional racehorse trainer (at eighteen!); one of the very first people in Africa, and the world, to have a commercial pilot’s license; and the first bush pilot to successfully scout game from the air for safari hunters under impossibly dangerous circumstances.
But the terrain Beryl can’t seem to conquer is her own heart. When she meets safari hunter Denys Finch Hatton (immortalized in Out of Africa), and the Danish author Karen Blixen, she’s catapulted into a passionate love triangle that will change the course of her life. Though neither Blixen or Markham publically acknowledged the relationship in their lifetime, it seared and altered them both, and set Beryl on a course to tackle her greatest adventure yet, flying the Atlantic east to west in 1936, two-thousand feet above the icy waves, without radio contact, alone in the dark for twenty-four hours, trusting her instruments and her instincts.


Happy Summer,
