Warren Grossman: To Be Healed By the Earth
Book signing

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, March 22, 7pm
Bloomsday Book Club
We have just begun!  With a stalwart group of hardy lit buffs, we will tackle the greatest book of the 20th century, James Joyce's Ulysses.  The first assignment is to read the first two chapters, plus any annotations or Bloomsday Book notes to help analyze it.  We'll meet the fourth Thursday of each month, so if you missed the first meeting, don't fret, just read the first two chapters and come on March 22nd. 

Saturday, March 31, 1-3pm
Michael Ceraolo:  Euclid Creek
Book signing
This 130-page epic poem traces the origins of Euclid Creek and proceeds to illuminate hundreds of years of Northeast Ohio history as it meanders like the flow of water through people, places and events that have shaped the destiny of the land that we call home. A must read for denizens of the Western Reserve.
"Michael Ceraolo may be the most versatile poet writing in America today... This was Moses Cleaveland’s creek; now it is Michael Ceraolo’s." -- Dr. Kelley J. White, poet

Thursday, April 5, 6-8pm

Meili's Acquisitions: Chinese Peasant Paintings
Annex Gallery Opening Reception

Meili travelled to China and discovered treasure troves of art in the backcountry:  untrained folk art, with a distinctly Chinese eye.  Different mediums, sizes, and styles abound of course, but the show holds its cohesive vision.  This isn't something you're likely to find in a local art museum or art book, so come to the Annex Gallery to experience something new, and profoundly moving.

Thursday, May 17, 7pm 
Martin Hauserman:  Saving Cleveland Archives
N.O.B.S. Forums

Not that long ago, when the City of Cleveland was cramped for space in their archives department, they almost threw away the whole shebang.  One man fought to save the collection, and almost single-handedly rescued the varied archives from a building slated for demolition.  Martin Hauserman will talk about the events that almost cost Cleveland its archival past, and what exactly is stored in the Cleveland Archives.
