May 7, 1-3pm J. Everett Prewitt: Snake Walkers

Mr. Prewitt wanted to write of strong black families, black men and women like the ones he knew, the ones who grew up in the south and had a legacy.   There were so many stories to tell, though, where to begin?  Inspiration to write his first novel came from listening to his elders, but most especially from a Mr. Johnson who said "We didn't all lose, and they didn't all win."  Finally, a story yet untold.  Snake Walkers is about a young black man who becomes the first black reporter for the Arkansas Sun.  His first assignment is to solve the mysterious abandonment of a small town and the disappearance of fourteen white men, an investigation that leads him from rural Arkansas to Cleveland, Ohio.  As he tries to uncover decades-old family secrets, he finds he also has to discover the person he wants to be.

May 14, 1-3pm Edward S. Friedman: Gin Rummy, M&M's and Peanuts

In this forthright and hilarious memoir of Dr. Barney Newman, as told to and written by his loyal scribe, Ed Friedman, Newman begins by describing Cleveland’s post World War II changing economic and social environment before humorously revealing the stories of a group of men who played in a weekly gin rummy game. The book takes readers into the player’s trials and tribulations as they-and their wives-deal with true life situations from marriage, infidelity, divorce, and death to financial and professional success, failure and living within the confines of mediocrity.

Alison’s life is perfect. Married to Eric, a handsome, wealthy man, she teaches 5th grade – just for fun – and is the envy of all her friends.  But beneath the surface, Eric is an abusive monster. Able to take no more, Alison flees her “perfect life” with only her clothes, her car and two cats. After a mad dash across the country, she lands in Grabill, a backwoods Ohio town with seemingly little to offer. But if anyone knows that appearances are deceiving, Alison does. So, she takes her chances on Grabill and, eventually, mechanic Tyler Coffey, embarking on a journey of a whole other kind.
