Frank E. Wrenick:  The Streamline Era Greyhound Terminals
Saturday, May 12, 1-3pm
In post-Depression America, Greyhound brought the glamour of travel within the reach of everyone, regardless of financial status. Their bus terminals functioned as gateways to the cities in which they were located. With this in mind, the Greyhound bus company found an architect who could embody in architectural form the sleek aerodynamics of the buses that served its transportation system: William Strudwick Arrasmith. Retired attorney Frank E. Wrenick is a freelance contributor to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He writes articles for a variety of other publications and lives in Cleveland Heights.  McFarland Publishing, 2007, hardcover, 194 pages, $49.95

Helen Boyd: She's Not the Man I Married
Friday, May 25, 4-6pm
Helen Boyd's book was inspired by a crisis in her marriage: her husband, who had long been open about being transgender, was considering living as a woman fulltime. Boyd was confronted with what it would mean if her husband actually were to become a woman socially, legally, and medically, and whether or not her love and desire for her partner would remain the same if he became ‘she’.  Boyd’s first book, My Husband Betty, explored the relationships of crossdressing men and their partners. She’s Not the Man I Married is in some ways both a sequel and a more serious and expansive examination of gender roles in relationships, for couples who are homosexual or heterosexual, and who fall anywhere along the gender continuum.  Seal Press, paperback, 2007, $15.95

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

Stump the BooksellerN93: night is falling, bang
late 70s or early 80s. All I remember is the last words of the book on last page are Night is falling, bang. Page is black. It may have been a first colors book for ages 4-8. I think it may be a small black covered book with a small peacock on it. Our family to this day all say "Night is falling!" and another will answer "Bang." Have saved all books from that time but can't find this one among them! Very frustrating. I won't give up!

Martin Hauserman:  Saving Cleveland Archives
Thursday, May 17, 7pm
~third Thursdays ~
On a cold windy day in March, 1998, Martin Hauserman, Chief City Archivist, City of Cleveland, Office of the Council, answered a call about 10,000 rolls of blueprints from 1903-1985 from the City's Building Department: either save the 250,000 sheets or lose them.  This is the story about them and the 1,300,000 sheets of legislation and 700 bound volumes going back to 1803 that need to be preserved.  NOBS Forums is part of a monthly series of meetings sponsored by the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society.  Suggested donation: $3

Bloomsday Book Club
JoyceThursday, May 24, 7pm
~fourth Thursdays~
We continue with one of the greatest books of the 20th century, James Joyce's Ulysses.  Averaging 2 chapters per month (~40 pages), it isn't too daunting or too late late to join us.  An annotated guide or Bloomsday Book is recommended, and the group will further help analyze and make sense of the complex literary games for which Joyce abounds.  We meet the fourth Thursday of each month; May will be our third meeting.

Larchmere Events
Saturday, May 26 
Larchmere Sidewalk Sale

Bargain sales abound as spring cleaning meets Memorial Day weekend.  Join the many and varied shops on Larchmere as we put extras, oldies, and specials on the sidewalk, and take a home a treasure or two! 

All books at Loganberry Books will be 20% off.  This kind of sale only happens twice per year.

Annex Gallery
Judith Angelo: Lost Love Letters
Thursday, May 3, 6-8pm

~first Thursdays ~
somewhere between our dreams and our fears, we put the stamp of desire on our life and send it out - over and over.  we get lost. undelivered. unread. misunderstood. misspelled. damaged in the mail. lost in time, in transition...  we litter the earth, waiting to be opened.  This show is a place to think about how and when and why we love - all the chances we have to unfold and read ourselves, float into the world, in love with being a letter. 
Show continues through May June 4.

Gaming Girls
May 3, 7-9pm
After a brief hiatus, Game Night continues, on the same night as the Annex Gallery Opening Reception.  So come early to see the show and meet the artist, and then try your hand at a round of Mexican Train! 

Looking Ahead
Larchmere Flea Market & Festival
Saturday, June 30, 11am-5pm

The dozens of merchants on Larchmere join forces with invited antiques dealers, vintage and specialty vendors, and community residents for a huge sales extravaganza all along Larchmere Boulevard.  We'll have entertainment too: musicians, Flower Clown, and the Euclid Beach Rocket Car!  Portobello Road Antiques Fair meets the Burton Flea Market, with a dose of Ingenuity.  (If you know vendors or entertainers who might be interested, have them contact Harriett at 216-795-9800).

I hope to see you browsing at Loganberry soon!
