Booklovers of all ages have their favorites, whether a treasured old copy of a classic or a lovely edition of a new book or a book left to you by a beloved relative. Now’s the time to share these interesting tomes with other bibliophiles at the annual Show and Tell session.  Anything goes: cherished books with a story to go with them or an odd curiosity you know nothing about, bring it along and let group members tell you what they think.  Either way, there’s always something to learn and some great books to discuss.  Every month, the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society gathers to discuss one aspect of the book arts community. Come join us!

Bonnie Jo Campbell: American Salvage
Wednesday, January 25, 2017, 7:00PM
~ fourth Wednesdays ~

American Salvage is rich with local color and peopled with rural characters who love and hate extravagantly. They know how to fix cars and washing machines, how to shoot and clean game, and how to cook up methamphetamine, but they have not figured out how to prosper in the twenty-first century. Through the complex inner lives of working-class characters, Bonnie Jo Campbell illustrates the desperation of post-industrial America, where wildlife, jobs, and whole ways of life go extinct and the people have no choice but to live off what is left behind.

Speculative Fiction workshop

Saturday, January 28, 2017, 10:00AM

~ workshop ~

Speculative fiction is not just dragons and vampires and spaceships. In this workshop we will discuss how to write stories that broaden the definition of the genre and approach more closely our personal visions of science fiction, fantasy, magic realism, and dystopia. We’ll follow up with some exercises as a way to open up the fictional world to a sense of surprise and invention. Taught by Mary Grimm and Charles Oberndorf. Register with Lit Cleveland.

Dale Goode: Forty Years of Work
Wednesday, February 1, 2017, 6:00PM
~ first Wednesdays ~
This exhibit is a culmination of forty years of intensive trial and error, showcasing original drawings and prints. Each piece reflects a mixture of facial features, and if looked upon close enough, there is intentional rearrangement of anatomical parts between faces. Working primarily in black and white, Dale Goode enjoys bringing out the emotional qualities of his pieces. Dale Goode’s work has been included in multiple exhibits and corporate collections in Cleveland and beyond, including Progressive Insurance, The Cleveland Urban League, The N.A.A.C.P., University Hospitals, The George Gund Foundation, and The Butler Institute of American Art. This exhibit opens on Wednesday February 1st with light refreshments and snacks, and closes on Sunday February 26th.
