Count Otis loves October.

And October is one scary month! We’re rather … thrilled … to show you our spooky side. 

We’ve got Dracula, Frankenstein, Suspense, and a Literary Haunted House.

We also have two outstanding book signings this month, too.

Do enjoy this loveliest time of the year!

Joanna Connors: I Will Find You

~ special event ~

Join us in conversation with Joanna Connors, author of the memoir I Will Find You. Setting out to uncover the story of her rapist, Connors embarks on a journey to find out who he was, where he came from, who his friends were, and what his life was like. What she discovers stretches beyond one violent man’s story and back into her own, interweaving a narrative about strength and survival with one about rape culture and violence in America. Interview conducted by Susan Petrone; book signing to follow.

Phoebe Robinson: You Can't Touch My Hair
Monday, October 17, 2016, 7:00PM
~ special event ~

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, but you definitely won’t touch her hair. Stand-up comedian, podcaster, and Cleveland native Phoebe Robinson debuts her hilarious and moving essay collection You Can’t Touch My Hair: And Other Things I Still Have to Explain, a witty look at race, gender, and pop culture. As a black woman in America, Phoebe maintains, you need a sense of humor to deal with the absurdity. Relegated to the role of “the black friend,” questioned for liking “white people music,” and followed around stores by security guards, Robinson takes on these topics with humor and heart. Called “a must-read” by Ilana Glazer of Broad City, and featuring a foreword by The Daily Show’s Jessica Williams, You Can’t Touch My Hair announces Robinson as a writer on the rise.
