Time to eat some books!  Thaaaat's right, it's time for the  fourth annual
Edible Books Festival
Saturday, April 7, 1pm
co-sponsored by Strong Bindery

There's only rule: make edible art that has something to do with books.  Go ahead, get started.  Please register your entries with Harriett ( or 216-795-9800), and bring them to Loganberry before 1pm.  We'll admire all the entries, vote on the Most Amusing, Most Beautiful and Most Bookish (won by popular vote and awarded appropriate books), and then we will consume them all!  $3 for voting and eating.  FAQs.

Michael Ceraolo:  Euclid Creek
This 130-page epic poem traces the origins of Euclid Creek and proceeds to illuminate hundreds of years of Northeast Ohio history as it meanders like the flow of water through people, places and events that have shaped the destiny of the land that we call home. A must read for denizens of the Western Reserve.
"Michael Ceraolo may be the most versatile poet writing in America today... This was Moses Cleaveland’s creek; now it is Michael Ceraolo’s." -- Dr. Kelley J. White, poet

Stump the BooksellerN91: nine toed ninny
My mom remembers having a children's book that she thinks she got as part of a grocery store promotion. The story was about a boy who wished his little sister would turn into a nine toed ninny. I think she does and of course he's sorry. We would have had this back in the 60's to 70's.

Anne Weissman: An Edition of One - The Artist's Book
Thursday, April 19, 7pm
~third Thursdays ~
Anne Weissman of the Altered Books Group gives a show and tell and overview history on artists' books.  While artists' books have a long history of turning traditional bookbinding on its head, modern altered books begin with a traditionally bound book and turn that object on its head.  Both are fabulous expressions of art through books.  Along with their current display in the Annex Gallery, Weissman will discuss the inspirations and methods used to create sculpture, painting, montages and purely original artwork.  Come learn more about the history of the artist's book and see the current exhibit!  Suggested donation: $3

Bloomsday Book Club
JoyceThursday, April 26, 7pm
~fourth Thursdays~
With a stalwart group of hardy lit buffs, we will tackle the greatest book of the 20th century, James Joyce's Ulysses.  The first assignment was to read the first two chapters (~40 pages), plus any annotations or Bloomsday Book notes to help analyze it.  The second assignment just continues from there, so it's not too late to join the group!  We'll meet the fourth Thursday of each month, so if you missed the first meeting, don't fret, just read the first three-four chapters and come on April 26.
