Judith Petres Balogh, Sunset
Booksigning
Sunset is the fifth book by former Aurora/Shaker Heights resident Judith Petres Balogh. The author was an educator and administrator in the US Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DODDS) in Germany, where she taught classes for the gifted children. After working a few years as school administrator, early retirement followed. She and her husband now live in Ohio and in Hungary, where they converted a "disaster area" into a lovely home (described in This Old House By The Lake).  The Hungarian Academy of Arts and Science in Cleveland awarded her book The Countess and Her Daughter a medal for outstanding literary efforts.  She is pleased to introduce her new novel Sunset, about women bound by deep friendship, ignoring the burdens of age and of life accidents, defying loneliness and arthritis, and each in her own, unique way giving new meaning to life. http://trafford.com/

Bloomsday Book Club

You've probably seen Ulysses at the top of many best literature lists, but have you read it? It's time!  Join us for a book club devoted to the greatest novel written by James Joyce.  Yes, we know you're a bit daunted by a book best read next to an unabridged dictionary, but we also know you've always wanted to read one of the most renowned and respected works in the English language.  We'll tackle it slowly, some ten pages at a time, and discuss it at length at monthly meetings.  Join us on the fourth Thursday of each month for a book club devoted to one book.

Warren Grossman: To Be Healed By the Earth
Booksigning

In 1987, Warren Grossman of Cleveland, OH contracted a parasitic disease during a vacation to Brazil. Doctors gave him only weeks to live, and each day he felt his energy seeping away. Sent home to die, he went outdoors to lie on the ground each day, and gradually the energy he felt emanating from the Earth began to strengthen his body and mind. In TO BE HEALED BY THE EARTH (2nd edition, Seven Stories Press, January 17, 2007), Grossman interweaves his expertise as a psychologist with his natural gift for healing in this tranquil, generous acknowledgment that physical strength and emotional wellbeing are possible to grasp simply by reconnecting with the Earth. Grossman’s words are elegantly paced with beautiful illustrations that anchor his message: nature and love are the keys to good health.
AUTHOR BIO:  Warren Grossman, a psychologist with a Ph.D. from Kent State University and the Gestalt Institute of Cleveland, is the training director of The Warren Grossman School of Healing, www.warrengrossman.com. He maintains a private healing practice in Cleveland, OH.

Show and Tell Session
N.O.B.S. Forums
The Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society (NOBS) will host another Show and Tell session on Thursday, March 15 at 7pm. 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).  http://www.nobsweb.org/

Thursday, April 5, 6-8pm
