Book Signing
Shaker HeightsBruce Marshall, Shaker Heights (Images of America)
Saturday, August 19, 1-3pm
Our own Shaker Heights achieved international renown in the early 20th century as an enclave for wealthy residents—a city of stunning homes, substantial green space, an excellent school system, and attentive municipal services. Cleveland entrepreneurs O. P. and M. J. Van Sweringen established Shaker Heights as a haven from the stresses of city life and claimed a connection with previous residents of this land, the North Union settlement of Shakers. Shaker communities sought to create paradise on earth by living communally and focusing on the life of the spirit. Buyers in Shaker Heights were assured that their paradise would last forever because of restrictions on what could be built and who could live there. Nevertheless, Shaker Heights has changed from a protected environment for the wealthy to a stable, integrated city that intentionally promotes diversity in its population. This is a remarkable story of dramatic change but also continuity as residents pursue the goal of creating an ideal community.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Stump the BooksellerQ15: Queen Ann's Lace
I am going to give you what I know about the story. It was read to me in the 50's or early 60's. It was a story about how the flower Queen Ann's Lace came to be. I do not remember very much except a witch was trying to get a girl (princess, maybe). Somehow white flowers grew up and trapped her. If  you look at the flower Queen Ann's Lace you will see a little black speck in the middle. This represents the witch amid a sea of white flowers. That is why Queen's Ann's Lace blooms with the back speck in the middle.  Every year about this time when it blooms I am reminded of this story. Please help me locate this fairy tale or folk lore story. No one seems to remember it but me.

Jeffrey DavisJeffrey Davis: Fine Nature Photography
Opening Reception:
Thursday, August 3, 6-8pm
Jeffrey Davis takes photographs up-close-and-personal.  His subjects are in our own backyards and parks, but with such amazing clarity and magnification that they take on new meanings.  His love for color, texture, and juxtaposition will make you smile and wish for summer to continue forever, even in the dog days of August.  These beautiful images are made even more luxurious by Jeffrey's exquisite use of multiple mattes and fancy edging.  Show continues through September 4.

I hope to see you browsing at Loganberry soon!
