James Banks: Cleveland in World War II
Friday, November 6, 2015, 1:00PM

~ special event ~

Berthed on the Cleveland lakefront, the battle-hardened submarine USS Cod serves as a proud reminder of the wartime contributions from the Greater Cleveland community. Clevelanders did their duty and more, from round-the-clock work on the factory assembly lines to the four Medal of Honor recipients on the front lines. The Cleveland Bomber Plant churned out thousands of B-29 parts, while Auto-Ordnance Co. developed the design for the Thompson submachine guns used by GIs on nearly every battlefield. Indians pitcher Bob Feller left the game to go into the service, and Clarence Jamison flew with the famed Tuskegee Airmen. Through interviews and archival material, authors Brian Albrecht and James Banks honor a time when Clevelanders of all stripes answered the call to arms.

Book Launch

James Renner : The Great Forgetting
Wednesday, November 11, 2015, 7:00PM

~ special event ~
Maybe the conspiracy theorists are onto something. What if fluoride is a sinister plot to alter our minds? What if there's an extensive network of tunnels running under the United States? Jack Felter, a history teacher, returns home to bucolic Franklin Mills, Ohio, to care for his father, a retired pilot who suffers from dementia. Jack would love to forget about Franklin Mills, and about Sam, the girl he fell in love with, who ran off with his best friend, Tony. Except Tony has gone missing, and the only one who knows anything is Tony's last patient, a paranoid boy named Cole. Jack must team up with Cole to follow Tony's trail--and maybe save the world. But when Jack learns the details about the program known as the Great Forgetting, he's faced with a timeless question: Is it better to forget our greatest mistakes--or to remember, so that they are never repeated? In The Great Forgetting, James Renner blends science fiction and conspiracy thrillers with a touch of pure fantasy, and the result is a novel that you won’t soon forget. Come and join us as James talks about his newest book!

 Suzanne Ondrus: Passion Seeds
Sunday, November 15, 2015, 1:00PM

~ Sunday signings ~
Winner of the Vernice Quebodeaux “Pathways” Poetry Prize, Passion Seeds is a love story of an American woman and a Burkinabe man that addresses intercultural and interracial love. The poems trace a history of transcontinental desire from Burkina Faso, to Benin, to Russia, to Ohio; they dispel the notion that we live in a post-racial world. Ondrus shows how racism and prejudice are some of our invisible seeds. Poet Joyce Ashuntantang says that this collection “will continue to seduce readers over and over again, and the only voodoo Ondrus is guilty of is her relentless use of imagery that plants passionate seeds in our bodies, letting us discover new reasons to love and love again!”

Jamye Jamison: Should I Buy That?: A Conservator’s Perspective on Purchasing Works on Paper

Wednesday, November 18, 2015, 7:00PM

~ third Wednesdays ~

What types of damage can you expect a conservator to be able to fix? What are your rights as a buyer to more information? What are your options for assessing an object when you are purchasing from a remote seller? Works on paper are often obscured with matting and frames. This means it is even more important for buyers to investigate before making a purchase. Jamye Jamison, paper conservator with ICA Art Conservation, will answer the above questions with examples along with advice on how to protect your collection. An open Q&A will follow.

Adriana Trigiani: Big Stone Gap
Wednesday, November 18, 2015, 7:00PM

~ fourth third Wednesdays ~
Millions of readers around the world have fallen in love with the small town of Big Stone Gap, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, and the story of its self-proclaimed spinster, Ave Maria Mulligan. In the series’ enchanting debut, Ave Maria reaches her thirty-fifth year and resigns herself to the single life, filling her days with hard work, fun friends, and good books. Then, one fateful day, Ave Maria’s past opens wide with the revelation of a long-buried secret that will alter the course of her life. Before she knows it, Ave Maria is fielding marriage proposals, trying to claim her rightful inheritance, and planning the trip of a lifetime to Italy—one that will change her view of the world and her own place in it forever. Full of wit and wonder, hilarity and heart, Big Stone Gap is a gem of a book, a new movie, and a treasure that you will share with friends and family.  Please note we’ll meet on the third Wednesday this month instead of our usual fourth Wednesday, due to Thanksgiving.  Watch for Facebook book give-aways.

 

Annual Holiday Bazaar

Otis’ Old Curiosity Shop

Thursday, November 19 – December 31, 2015

~ annual event ~

Our popular pop-up shop officially opens one week before Thanksgiving.  It’s already in process as I type this, but with over 200 vendors, it takes some time to set up.  Our Annex Gallery transforms into a winter wonderland for the months of November and December, and it will make you feel like a kid again.  Nostalgic toys, educational games, letterpress cards, book-themed tchotchkes, holiday ornaments, local artist and world-wide fair trade crafts will all be represented, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few books in the mix, either.  Please come share in the seasonal magic.
