Barbara Huff: Quilts
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 2, 2015, 6:00—8:00PM
~ first Wednesdays ~
Barbara's one-of-a-kind creations combine traditional quilting techniques such as piecing and applique with surface design such as dyeing, painting and stamping with her own hand-carved blocks. She recently returned to Cleveland after having lived away for many years. Part of that time she spent traveling and began collecting textiles from different parts of the world, which she sometimes incorporates into her pieces. Barbara's focus is on using beautiful materials in unique ways and she hopes that you will take as much pleasure in viewing them as she has in making them. Barbara has studied at the Smithsonian lnstitution, the Art League and Praxis Fiber Workshop. Barbara is a member of the StudioArt Quilt Association and the Surface Design Association.

Thomas Hardy: Far From the Madding Crowd

Wednesday, September 23, 2015, 7:00—8:30PM
~ fourth Wednesdays ~
In Thomas Hardy’s first major literary success, independent and spirited Bathsheba Everdene has come to Weatherbury to take up her position as a farmer on the largest estate in the area. Her bold presence draws three very different suitors: the gentleman-farmer Boldwood, the soldier-seducer Sergeant Troy, and the devoted shepherd Gabriel Oak. Each, in contrasting ways, unsettles her decisions and complicates her life, and tragedy ensues, threatening the stability of the whole community. One of his first works set in the semi-fictional region of Wessex, Hardy’s novel of swift passion and slow courtship is imbued with his evocative descriptions of rural life and landscapes, and with unflinching honesty about sexual relationships. Loganberry's own book discussion group, led by Susan Petrone.

Elisabeth Egan: A Window Opens
Friday, September 25, 2015, 4:00PM
~ special event ~
The literary world in Elisabeth Egan’s A Window Opens is firmly divided between the New York City publishing houses and a megalithic retail operation called MainStreet located in Cleveland, Ohio.  As protagonist Alice Pearse accepts the challenge as her family’s breadwinner, MainStreet launches Scroll, a literary lounge that creates a cultural shift in the way people read and buy books, or, rather, eBooks.  Alice accepts a job at Scroll, and thinks her literary and economic needs are met.  But as the Orwellian tension mounts at Scroll and Alice’s multi-generational family’s needs also mount, Alice must make some serious decisions.  Family, community, and cultural truths weigh out against Big Brother here, and Cleveland makes many cameo appearances, including a “favorite bookstore on Larchmere.”  Join us for a book discussion and signing with Elisabeth Egan, the books editor of Glamour magazine and debut novelist. Add this one to your best Christmas-gifting ideas this year, too.


Happy End-of-Summer,
