Loganberry News August 2019

Summertime, and the reading is easy...

Cleveland is maturing into such a robust book town! July's Author Alley was our best yet, and Lit Cleveland's Inkubator coincided with a world-class street party for CPL'S 150th birthday. Now we mellow out with Woodstock's 50th Anniversary nostalgia, while taking its peaceful mantras to heart (Indie bookstores nationwide--including Loganberry!-- helped raise almost $100,000 for RAICES work with refugees). Looking forward, we're finally getting around to some spring cleaning, and we'll have specials on the sidewalk all month, culminating with the Sidewalk Sale at the end of the month. Halloween will be here before you know it!

Antiquarian Acquisitions

Our collection of more than a dozen Erskine Caldwell First Editions are inventoried and ready to buy! From the breezy blue jacket designs shown here to starker, grittier classics like Tobacco Road and God's Little Acre, there's plenty of this 20th century novelist to explore. (Did you know he has Ohio connections? He was married to photographer Margaret Bourke White!)

Naturalist's Notebook

Edward Abbey: Desert Solitaire
Saturday, August 18, 1pm
Desert Solitaire is a classic of nature writing and environmentalism. When Edward Abbey wrote in the 1950s, he was working as a park ranger in Arches National Park in Utah. The desert was his passion and each chapter is a story about the animal life, geology, fauna and humans he interacts with in this unique environment. Fifty years after it was first published, we are still, talking about these same issues while the “delicate balance” has become even more fragile.


Bucket List Book Club

Ann Patchett: Bel Canto
Wednesday, August 25, 2019, 7pm
~fourth Wednesdays~
Join us to discuss what is perhaps the most beloved of the great novelist Ann Patchett's many novels, Bel Canto. Somewhere in South America, at the home of the country's vice president, a lavish birthday party is being held in honor of the powerful businessman Mr. Hosokawa. Roxanne Coss, opera's most revered soprano, has mesmerized the international guests with her singing. It is a perfect evening - until a band of gunwielding terrorists takes the entire party hostage. But what begins as a panicked, life-threatening scenario slowly evolves into something quite different, a moment of great beauty, as terrorists and hostages forge unexpected bonds and people from different continents become compatriots, intimate friends, and lovers.

The Bucket List Book Club is led by former Loganberry staffer and writer Susan Petrone. We guarantee a spirited discussion!
