Before Carolyn Fitzgerald ran the excellent Cafe Limbo, she was an artist.  Now she's returned to her roots, and is featuring oil abstract paintings in this Annex Gallery show.  She gets extra kudos from Loganberry for creative use of space, which you must see for yourself.  Come say hello and enjoy the other creative side of Carolyn Fitzgerald.  She'd love to see her old friends...  Show runs March 6 - 31.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month
Stump the BooksellerB621: Bobby and grandpa search for apple
Golden books, 1970, approximately.  Book begins with grandpa telling Bobby to find an apple and he will show him how to roast it.  Bobby went searching .. But it was autumn and apple trees were bare.  He gathered a bucket of nuts.  Visited many farms, finally finding an apple from harvest and book ends  with his grandpa placing the apple over the fire in the fireplace.

Bloomsday Club
Thursday, March 27, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
Aha!  The famous Chapter Ten, and a virtual tour of Dublin.  It is said that Joyce wrote this chapter with a map of Dublin in front of him and traced the paths of most of the characters who appear in this chapter, in the wee hours between 3 and 4 a.m.  He calculated how long it would take each character to make their routes, and therefore when they might run into each other or arrive at new destinations.  So, all we need now is a grant so we can all go to Dublin ourselves and test Joyce's skill.  After all, wasn't Joyce living in Paris for most of the time spent writing this book?  (Maybe we'll need a grant to go to Paris, too.)

Austeniana Club
Thursday, March 27, 7pm
~ fourth Thursdays ~
We're off to a great start, and have a good-sized group to discuss the merits and rewards of reading Austen.  We're working in a chronological order, and that means Pride and Prejudice is next.  So, don't just watch the BBC film, read the real thing and come let us know your thoughts.  We're even tracking the various character types in a big chart so we can compare Austen's writing development over time.  Join us for any or all of our ongoing Austen discussions, always on the fourth Thursday of the month.

Edible Books Festival
Saturday, April 5, 1pm
~ every first Saturday in April ~
Join us for the fifth year of Loganberry Books and Strong Bindery's hosting of the Edible Books Festival in Cleveland.  It's an international event with exhibitions and competitions all over the world, but here in Cleveland we have just one rule:  make edible art that has something to do with books.  How people choose to interpret that rule is wherein lies the fun.  Entrants: please register with Loganberry Books ahead of time, and bring your creations before 1pm.  At 2pm, we'll vote on the winners, and grab our forks.  Don't be late, the creations don't last long after that!  $3 to vote and eat (free to look).  For more information, visit our FAQ page and photos of the past four years festivals.

And, in between all these great events, be sure to enjoy the Cleveland International Film Festival
