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

Anne Weissman: An Edition of One - The Artist's Book
Anne Weissman of the Altered Books Group gives a show and tell and overview history on artists' books.  While artists' books have a long history of turning traditional bookbinding on its head, modern altered books begin with a traditionally bound book and turn that object on its head.  Both are fabulous expressions of art through books.  Along with their current display in the Annex Gallery, Weissman will discuss the inspirations and methods used to create sculpture, painting, montages and purely original artwork.  Come learn more about the history of the artist's book and see the current exhibit!  Suggested donaton: $3   http://www.loganberrybooks.com/gall-redbookproject.html

Thursday, April 26, 7pm
Bloomsday Book Club
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 was to read the first two chapters (~40 pages), plus any annotations or Bloomsday Book notes to help analyze it.  The second assignment just continues from there, so it's not too late to join the group!  We'll meet the fourth Thursday of each month, so if you missed the first meeting, don't fret, just read the first three chapters and come on April 26. 

Thursday, May 3, 6-8pm
Annex Gallery Opening Reception
[Meili's Acquisitions: Chinese Peasant Paintings]  **postponed to September**
Judith Angelo: Lost Love Letters
somewhere between our dreams and our fears, we put the stamp of desire on our life and send it out - over and over.  we get lost. undelivered. unread. misunderstood. misspelled. damaged in the mail. lost in time, in transition...  we litter the earth, waiting to be opened.  This show is a place to think about how and when and why we love - all the chances we have to unfold and read ourselves, float into the world, in love with being a letter. 
Show continues through May June 4.

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.   $3 suggested donation.

Larchmere Sidewalk Sale

Bargain sales abound as spring cleaning meets Memorial Day weekend.  Join the many and varied shops on Larchmere as we put extras, oldies, and specials on the sidewalk, and take a home a treasure or two... 
Sidewalk Sales are featured on Larchmere Boulevard twice annually, on the Saturdays preceeding Memorial Day and Labor Day.

NOBS Forums
Show and Tell
The Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society (NOBS) hosts its quarterly Show and Tell session on Thursday, June 21 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.  Suggested donation: $3

Saturday, June 30, 11am-5pm
Larchmere Flea Market and Festival
The Larchmere merchants, together with our community residents and dealer friends, are hosting one gigantic flea market and festival that is part merriment, part bargain hunter's paradise.  With over 50 participating vendors, this will be one huge sale not to miss!  Entertainment and food will abound too, so come join the street festival in one of Cleveland's favorite neighborhoods.  Anything is fair game; so along with Larchmere's well-known arts and antiques, there will be common garage sale fare too, and fabulous quality treasures hauled out for this very special occasion.

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

peace,
