In Concert
Gene's Jazz HotGene's Jazz Hot
Thursday, January 10, 6:30pm-9:00pm

~ second Thursdays ~
Nothing beats a good band in a cozy book-lined room.  If you want food to go along with that, I highly recommend the Flying Cranes Cafe across the street which is indeed open now, and featuring the best miso soup this side of Japan (according to some patrons).  We'll have self-serve hot tea and other light snacks, but feel free to bring your take-out dinner, or your own bottle of wine.   Donations for the band gladly accepted.

N.O.B.S. Forums
Show and Tell
Thursday, January 17, 7pm
~ third Thursdays ~
The book talks sponsored by the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society has a full year planned for 2008, and we'll begin with a Show and Tell on January 17th.  Come brag about your Christmas presents or show off family heirlooms or recent garage sale finds.  It's a good social time, as well as educational, as there are always some real gems to marvel over.  Please join us.  $3 suggested donation.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

G443: girl stops burglers in department store
An English book from the 40's or 50's where a little girl stops burglers in a department store by pushing the escalator button.  Her family gets a new washing up machine as a reward. 

Bloomsday Club
Thursday, January 24, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
Yup, we journey on with Stephen Bloom and the gang....  We've had a holiday hiatus, so it's a good time for newcomers to join the group and venture forth with what many claim the best piece of literature in English of the twentieth century.  Also go see Bloomsday Club member Barbara Becker's new play Ictus at CPT's Big Box series February 22-24.

Each of these events has a poster if you want a reminder, or a flyer to post on your favorite bulletin board (just click on the image).  And don't forget our amusing and sometimes informative blog....
