Edible Books Festival
Edible BooksSaturday, April 1st, 1pm
Co-sponsored by Strong Bindery
If you've heard about our Edible Books Festival before, and wondered about it or started dreaming up submission entries, now is the time to act.  April Fool's Day comes but once a year, and the first Saturday of April is the Fool's Day itself this year!  But don't be fooled:  this festival is serious good fun, with prizes, merriment and amusement as we look to see how others interpret the single, simple rule:  create edible art that has something to do with books.   See the FAQ's.  Join the fun.
Submissions:  please register with Harriett ( or 216-795-9800).

Book Signing
MontanariRichard Montanari, The Skin Gods
Saturday, April 29, 1-3pm
In the past decade, native Clevelander Richard Montanari's novels of suspense have been published in more than a dozen countries and in nearly as many languages. His fifth major novel, The Skin Gods (Ballantine, March 2006), takes place in the steaming heart of a Philadelphia summer while detectives Jessica Balzano and Kevin Byrne are trying to catch a depraved killer with a secret vendetta. Taking inspiration from cinema classics such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, someone is turning cinematic art into brutal reality.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Stump the BooksellerW187:  Witch, Children and Junkyard
Remember a purple cover - this was a 1970s book about children who go over to a yard that has lots of junk in it - children sometimes disappear and it turns out that the witch is turning the kids into furniture and such - they are somehow rescued and turned back into kids. Even as a child I could never remember the name of this book - sometimes I would come across it at the library out of the blue.

Opening Reception & Book Signing: Thursday, April 6, 6-8pm
Show:  April 6-30
Two Cleveland girls are authors of a new art book titled Collage in All Dimensions.  Gretchen Bierbaum attended John Marshall High School on the westside and Trina Gardner attended Cleveland Heights High, and they met at Kent State University in the 1960s.  Gretchen founded the National Collage Society, Inc in 1982 and Trina joined the Board of Directors as an officer.  Now they have co-edited a new book using 20 years of the National Collage Society juried exhibits.  The book also includes a brief history of collage, archival approaches, and images from the award-winning collages, many of which will be on display in the Loganberry Annex Gallery.  Artists, collage masters, scrapbookers, archivists, and modern art afficinados will all enjoy this new look into professional collage art.
