HeddaFirst, the sad news.  Hedda, our celebrated feline friend, did not survive surgery for an infected kidney.  Loganberry and Hedda celebrated their shared 10th birthday just a year and a half ago; it seems much too soon to bid good-bye.  Her webpage has been lovingly revised, and we mourn the loss.

We'll be closed for the 4th of July, and open on the Monday preceeding it from noon until 8pm.

Book Signing
Playhouse SquarePat Mote, Cleveland's Playhouse Square
Saturday, July 15, 1-3pm
 In the early 1920s, five opulent theaters—the Allen, the Ohio, the State, the Palace, and the Hanna—opened on Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland. They offered theater, vaudeville, name bands and entertainers, and films. Unfortunately, the introduction of television and the flight to the suburbs in the 1950s and 1960s turned the theaters into ghost palaces destined for the wrecking ball. In 1970, a bold group of planners led by Raymond K. Shepardson formed the Playhouse Square Association, a nonprofit group dedicated to saving the theaters. A 25-year restoration endeavor emerged that raised $53 million, culminating in the largest theater restoration project in the world. Today Playhouse Square Center ranks second only to New York’s Lincoln Center as North America’s largest performing arts complex.  Arcadia Publishing, 2006, paperback, 128 pages, $19.99

If you've seen the Al Gore movie, and wonder how to effect change in your own life, start with a look at your own front yard...
Am. GreenTed Steinberg, American Green
Thursday, July 27, 7pm

Ted Steinberg, Professor of History and Law at Case Western Reserve University, has worked as an environmental historian for nearly twenty years. He is the winner of the National Outdoor Book Award and a two-time Pulitzer Prize Nominee. His new book, American Green: The Obsessive Quest for the Perfect Lawn, chronicles the history of the suburban mania for green yards, and the impact this quest has had on the environment and public health. Steinberg's indictment of American lawn culture with its carefree adoption of hazardous materials, muffler-less machines, and wanton water use will make you think twice before throwing down the weed and feed and turning on the sprinkler. Come with a sense of humor and a willingness to see your yard through different-colored glasses.

Artist Reception
peace Woody Blue:  With Unflagging Spirit
Monday, July 3, 6-8pm 
At age 50, Woody Blue, peace activist, began making whimsical flags out of spare cloth. In the past 4 years, she has taken every opportunity to insert her flags into an increasingly war-driven world.  Now, 800 flags later, she invites you to join her in a free evening of textile art, humor, outrageous discussion, and gourmet refreshments.

Edie CareyEdie Carey
Friday, July 28, 8pm
Edie Carey grabs hold of her audiences and doesn't let go until she steps off the stage.  Carey's wry and self-mocking humor, coupled with her ability to tell a great story, makes audiences feel as though they have just spent the evening with a very close friend. Given the triple threat of her magnetic stage presence, heart-grabbing songs, and almost unearthly voice, it's no wonder that the word about Carey is traveling fast. Tickets:  $10 in advance, $12 at the door.

Stump the BooksellerG332: Girl wins geography test to earn trip
I read this book in the 70's and loved it.  It was about a girl who lived in boarding school or an orphanage.  She was put in time out in a classroom where she read a geography book.  She used that knowledge to get the best grade on a test which earned her a trip with her teacher. They had a great adventure over the summer. Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!!!

Annex Gallery
James CozartJames Cozart:  Winter in Bavaria
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 6, 6-8pm
When James Cozart was in the Army during World War II, he took his camera with him.  These are not journalistic war shots however, but rather beautiful sweeping panoramas of the German countryside:  mountains, valleys, and snow, in a luscious black and white depth that captures the deep nostalgia of a time gone by.  New prints of these old negatives bring life to the quiet beauty of the snowy countryside of old Bavaria. Jimmy is a charter member of the Fine Arts Society, founded by Charles Pinkney, and also a long time member of the Karamu Camera Guild.  Show continues through July 31.

I hope to see you browsing at Loganberry soon!
