Events Calendar   September / October / November  2006

Thursday, September 7, 6-8pm
Dawn Pierce:  Before Dawn
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
This art show is a tribute to some master painters much enjoyed and admired.  Like many artists, Dawn's desire to paint is driven by other artists.  Having met Andy Warhol at a party, she recalls his words that every work of art is not original because it can be traced back to some other image.  The work she has sold is kind of like creating a contact lens of another artist's eye.   How wonderful  that these works will be hanging somewhere besides the artist's own living room.  Show continues through October 2.

Saturday, September 2, 11-5pm
Larchmere Sidewalk Sale
bi-annual sales event
Labor Day weekend brings out the bargains on Larchmere Boulevard with their bi-annual Sidewalk Sale.  The 50+ shops and services who reside on Larchmere Boulevard (just a block north of Shaker Square) will display special sales merchandise on the sidewalks and other discounts throughout their retail stores.  Loganberry Books will be offering a 20% off sale, as well as 50% off selected specials on the sidewalk.  The art and antiques district is known for the quirky, esoteric, and rarities and there are only two Sidewalk Sales per year.  This is the real deal in community and neighborhood shopping; don’t miss it!

Saturday, September 16th, 1-3pm

NOBS Forums:  Kenneth A. Zirm:  On Reporter Confidentiality
Some of the nation’s leading investigative reporters have begun appearing at bookstores across the country to discuss the dangerous increase in efforts to force journalists to reveal their confidential sources.  The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression (ABFFE), the bookseller’s voice in the fight against censorship, and the MLRC Institute, a not-for-profit educational organization focused on the media and the First Amendment, are working together to sponsor a series of talks by reporters and media lawyers to explain the importance of confidential sources.  This particular talk is hosted by the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society, as part of their monthly NOBS Forums: Conversations Throughout the Book World. Mr. Zirm of Walter and Haverfield LLP and a reporter (TBA) will discuss the background to this civil rights issue, and its legal ramifications.  The MLRC Institute, through a grant from the McCormick Tribune Foundation, has facilitated this presentation explaining the privilege and its history, with the heart of the presentation focusing on why this privilege should matter to the public.  Attendees will learn more background on (a) the history of the privilege, (b) stories that could not have been told but for the use of confidential sources, and (c) the legal bases for the privilege.  Q&A will follow the discussion.

Thursday, September 28, 7pm
Jan Phillips, The Art of Original Thinking

a booksigning and talk
Want a Better Bottom Line AND a Better World? Finally! A book that confirms what we all knew in our hearts to be true: that capitalism - and indeed the world - can have a social conscience. The Art of Original Thinking is a book about thought leadership.  It's a book that doesn't hide behind the convenient catch-cries of capitalism. It's a book that is concerned, not with what to think, but with how to think. Most importantly, it's a book that embraces your uniqueness and your unique potential to effect positive change through original thinking and thought leadership. When you pick this book up, your single challenge will be to engage in "evolutionary thinking for global good." When you put it down, you'll wonder how you ever thought otherwise.  Greenleaf Book Group, 2006, hardcover, $24.95

NOBS Cleveland Antiquarian Book Show 
Case Western Reserve University's Adelbert Gymnasium
The Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society has been sponsoring antiquarian book fairs for about twenty years, but it's been awhile since we've had one in Cleveland.  Cuyahoga Falls, yes; Akron, yes; Chagrin Falls, yes; but not recently in Cleveland.  So, welcome back to the world of antiquarian book fairs in Cleveland!  Many regional dealers are expected to show their best wares in the book-reknown Adelbert Gymnasium of Case Western Reserve University.  Co-sponsored by Case's Kelvin Smith Library, this new location should be the perfect venue for book enthusiasts of all kinds to seek and find biblio treasures.  $4 general admission, free to NOBS members, half-price to Case community.
