Salutations ~

pdfand autumnal greetings!  Did you know October is World Vegetarian Month?  Well, it is.  It's an international celebration, in fact.   As such, I've encouraged my neighbor Laurie at the Larchmere Tavern to cook up some special vegetarian selections this month.  With the help of Loganberry's extensive cookbook collection, as well as her own secrets, she has.  Stop in the Larchmere Tavern anytime this month and savor some meatless morsels.  And enjoy a 10% discount on any cookbooks at Loganberry Books this month, too.  Go Veg!

Don't forget to admire Gene Epstein's altered book sculptures on display at the new Cleveland Heights Public Library.  It's at the top of the stairs, on the way towards the famed bridge.

Cleveland Metroparks  (Images of America)
book signing
A century ago, William A. Stinchcomb, aged 27, closed his annual report as chief engineer of parks for the City of Cleveland with a challenge to create an outer ring of parks and boulevards to benefit all residents of Greater Cleveland. By 1912, legislation authorizing it had been enacted, and three acres of land were acquired through a donation. This formed the nucleus of the vast park system that now includes almost 21,000 acres. Cleveland Metroparks has provided generations of area residents with readily accessible facilities for year-round recreation. The park provides opportunities for hiking, horseback riding, swimming, cycling, golfing, and boating. Use of the park, which crosses the boundaries of approximately 48 communities in the Cleveland area, has become a tradition for many families. 
Author Bio: Thomas G. Matowitz Jr. is a lifelong resident of the Greater Cleveland area who grew up on the edge of Cleveland Metroparks Rocky River Reservation. He tells the park’s story with pictures from a wide range of local sources, including the Cleveland State University Library, local historical societies, and the park’s own collection.

Forest Hill: The Rockefeller Estate  (Images of America)
book signing

John D. Rockefeller's Cleveland roots stretched across the oil-drenched banks and murky flats of Kingsbury Run in Cleveland and ended in the wooded sanctuary at Forest Hill. Six miles east of Public Square, Forest Hill was the Rockefeller family's country estate and summer home for four decades. It had formal gardens, greenhouses, a lake and lily pond, a golf course, a horse track, and acres of farmland. In the early 1900s, tourists and local residents rode the streetcar out Millionaires' Row to East Cleveland, where they peered through the imposing iron gates scrolled with an R to peek at the gatekeeper's lodge, the manicured lawns, and the road that led to the mansion atop the hill. Unfortunately, in 1917, Forest Hill burned to the ground. Because so many records, mementos, and photographs perished, the estate remains as shrouded in secrecy today as it did during its lifetime. Forest Hill: The Rockefeller Estate unveils the story of the estate, how it evolved and changed over the years, and how its legacy continues.
Author Bio:
Sharon E. Gregor coordinated the effort that placed 81 Rockefeller homes on the National Register of Historic Places. She is a founder of the Forest Hill Historic Preservation Society and served as its first president. Gregor most recently served as chairperson of the City of East Cleveland's Historic Preservation Board.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Stump the BooksellerG351: Ghost story teenagers & rituals
I read this book when I was about 11 back in 1981 & it was definitely set in modern times -  I'm English but don't remember if the book was. The characters were (a group of?) teenagers & it was set in a house haunted by a malevolent spirit. There may have been a poltergeist involved beacause I clearly remember a wardrobe falling onto a character & pinning them to the bed. One character used to use rituals to try to ward of the evil spirit or to help them calm down? It was a very dark novel aimed at young adult readers. Not quite sure why I'd like to re-read this but it's just one of those books that has stuck in my brain!!!!
