Richard Montanari, The Skin Gods
a booksigning
In the past decade, native Clevelander Richard Montanari's novels of suspense have been published in more than a dozen countries and in nearly as many languages. His fifth major novel, The Skin Gods (Ballantine, March 2006), takes place in the steaming heart of a Philadelphia summer while detectives Jessica Balzano and Kevin Byrne are trying to catch a depraved killer with a secret vendetta. Taking inspiration from cinema classics such as Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, someone is turning cinematic art into brutal reality.

NOBS Forums:  Show and Tell Session
bi-monthly seminar
The Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society (NOBS) will host another Show and Tell session on Saturday, May 20, at 4 pm. Anyone and everyone is invited to bring biblio treasures and tell us their stories!  Where did they come from, what makes them special, have you ever seen illustrations like this?  We'll each share some gems, and gain some knowledge from the collective group.  With book collectors, librarians, afficianados, dealers, bookbinders, and historians in the group, it will be more than an "Antiques Roadshow" experience, as we'll learn about the history, bibliographies, biographies, and values of the books, and put the book into its cultural history context. So bring your gems from the attic, garage sale curios, and prized possessions.  Learn a little, teach a tad.   Admission:  $3 (free to NOBS members).

Sunday, May 21, 10am-1pm
Introduction To Telepathic Communication With Animals
a workshop with Jacqueline Smith
Through Species Connection, established in 1980, Jacquelin Smith has helped others reawaken their innate, intuitive ability to communicate with animals. Animal communication is a heart-to-heart connection that everyone can experience if they open, love, and listen to the animals. Interspecies communication is a natural connection many of us have forgotten. It has nothing to do with being "psychic."  Spend the afternoon with Lakewood native Jacqueline Smith and learn how to better communicate with your own pets.  Reservations required.  $60

Saturday, May 27, 11-5pm

Larchmere Antiques Fair

Once a year, Larchmere Boulevard is closed to vehicle traffic while myriad antiques merchants and vintage dealers set up booths in the middle of street and showcase their treasures of the esoteric, unique, and antique.  Combined with the brick and mortar mainstay businesses of Larchmere, this creates a shopping extravaganza that's part street fair, and part Portobello Road Market.  With balloons, bands, fanfare, and street performers, it's not just a shopping expedition, but an afternoon of fun in the sun and digging for treasures.  With over 60 combined antiques and vintage dealers, there's always something glamorous, something unexpected, and a bargain or two not to be resisted.

**Further information and pictures are available for all events listed.  Just ask!**
