John C. Breuning: The Midnight Guardian: Hour of Darkness
Sunday, October 29, 2017, 1:00PM

~ Sunday signings ~

Join local author John C. Bruening for the signing of his newest novel, The Midnight Guardian: Hour of Darkness. Union City, 1938. Sadistic mob boss Nicky Diamond – aka Nicky Dynamite – has served his sentence for Prohibition-era crimes, and now he’s back to re-establish an organization even more widespread and nefarious than his alcohol empire of old. Leaving an explosive calling card wherever he strikes, his exact whereabouts remain a mystery to the police. Enter Jack Hunter, Union City’s up and coming assistant district attorney who is fiercely committed to taking Diamond down by any means necessary – for reasons that are personal as well as professional. When Hunter acquires advanced technology that makes him something more than human, he dives headlong into the gray area between law and justice and becomes a defender of a different kind.

J. Mark Souther: Believing in Cleveland
Sunday, November 12, 2017, 1:00PM

~Sunday Signings~
Join local author J. Mark Souther for the signing of his new book, Believing in Cleveland. Chronicling how Cleveland city leaders used imagery and rhetoric to combat and, at times, accommodate urban and economic decline, Souther presents a Cleveland that has long sought to defeat its perceived civic malaise. By placing the city's history in the postwar context, when the metropolitan area was divided by uneven growth, Souther recounts the long, difficult history of a city that some folks call "The Best Location in the Nation."

Paul Sturges: Sullivan's Travels (1941)
Thursday, November 16, 2017, 7:00PM

This month we are screen Preston Sturges' classic Sullivan's Travels. Successful movie director John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea), convinced he won't be able to film his ambitious masterpiece until he has suffered, dons a hobo disguise and sets off on a journey, aiming to "know trouble" first-hand. When all he finds is a train ride back to Hollywood and a beautiful blonde companion (Veronica Lake), he redoubles his efforts, managing to land himself in more trouble than he bargained for when he loses his memory and ends up a prisoner on a chain gang. Grab the popcorn and a friend for Classic Movie Night at Loganberry Books!
