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.

Frank E. Wrenick:  The Streamline Era Greyhound Terminals

In post-Depression America, Greyhound brought the glamour of travel within the reach of everyone, regardless of financial status. Their bus terminals functioned as gateways to the cities in which they were located. With this in mind, the Greyhound bus company found an architect who could embody in architectural form the sleek aerodynamics of the buses that served its transportation system: William Strudwick Arrasmith.
Retired attorney Frank E. Wrenick is a freelance contributor to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. He writes articles for a variety of other publications and lives in Cleveland Heights.  McFarland Publishing, 2007, hardcover, 194 pages, $49.95

Martin Hauserman:  Saving Cleveland Archives
On a cold windy day in March, 1998, Martin Hauserman, Chief City Archivist, City of Cleveland, Office of the Council, answered a call about 10,000 rolls of blueprints from 1903-1985 from the City's Building Department: either save the 250,000 sheets or lose them.  This is the story about them and the 1,300,000 sheets of legislation and 700 bound volumes going back to 1803 that need to be preserved.  Part of a monthly series of meetings sponsored by the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society.  <free>

Thursday, May 24, 7pm
Bloomsday Book Club
We continue with one of the greatest books of the 20th century, James Joyce's Ulysses.  Averaging 2 chapters per month (~40 pages), it isn't too daunting or too late late to join us.  An annotated guide or Bloomsday Book is recommended, and the group will further help analyze and make sense of the complex literary games for which Joyce abounds.  We meet the fourth Thursday of each month.

Friday, May 25, 4-6pm
Booksigning
Helen Boyd: She's Not the Man I Married

Helen Boyd's book was inspired by a crisis in her marriage: her husband, who had long been open about being transgender, was considering living as a woman fulltime. Boyd was confronted with what it would mean if her husband actually were to become a woman socially, legally, and medically, and whether or not her love and desire for her partner would remain the same if he became ‘she’.  Boyd’s first book, My Husband Betty, explored the relationships of crossdressing men and their partners. She’s Not the Man I Married is in some ways both a sequel and a more serious and expansive examination of gender roles in relationships, for couples who are homosexual or heterosexual, and who fall anywhere along the gender continuum.  Seal Press, paperback, 2007, $15.95

Saturday, May 26, 11am-5pm

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.  <free>

Saturday, June 30, 11am-5pm
** Larchmere Flea Market and Festival **
The Larchmere merchants, together with our neighboring residents, dealer and vendor friends, are hosting one gigantic Flea Market and Festival.  With plenty of vendors, there will a huge variety of antique, vintage and useful things available for sale, with entertainment to boot!  Imagine part Burton Flea Market, part Portobello Road Market, with a dash of Ingenuity.  Music and food will abound, some in unexpected corners, so you'll have to come see for yourself.  From junk to jewels and kitsch to collectible, join the street festival for merriment and a bargain hunter's paradise.  <Admission is free>
