Unseen Cleveland2

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 11/23/2010 - 09:18.

At first, I was going to write some nice stuff about Michael DeAloia and his new book:

Lost Cleveland

...but I am a bit miffed right now.

I am mad, not at Michael DeAloia, who doesn't seem to let the local corruption dampen his enthusiasm for our fair city, but at the puppetmasters at NPI, the foundations and Greater Cleveland Partnership.

So, instead of promoting the book, Lost Cleveland, I will promote:

Cleveland School Gardens

Remembering Cleveland

And, I will remind folks that the good part of Cleveland is still here and always will be--you just need to look for it.

A Plug for Lost Cleveland

  As depressing as our political representation can get--I do marvel at folks who stay upbeat and make an effort to herald our city, which is why I am promoting Michael DeAloia's book.  And, hey, it's a BOOK!


Lost Cleveland:

Seven Wonders of the Sixth City

Hello Cleveland! I am proud to announce a number of cool happenings and the last book signing before the Holiday Season to promote my book – “Lost Cleveland: Seven Wonders of the Sixth City.” I am totally digging the great reception for the book. During the last few weeks I have been lucky to talk with a ton of people about the book and the reception has just been great. Last Friday I was thrilled to be asked to join Dick Feagler on his TV show "Feagler & Friends" to talk about Cleveland's glorious past. I believe the segment will be broadcasted on December 31st or January 1st. Stay tuned for more details. It will also be stored on the "Feagler & Friends" website - http://www.wviz.org/WVIZ/feagler. Quite honored to be asked to be on the "Lanigan & Malone Morning Show" this Thursday at 7:40 am (see details below). 

As many of you know for the past few years I have been writing the Cool History of Cleveland Blog (http://www.coolhistoryofcleveland.wordpress.com) in what I thought was creative obscurity. However, a few months ago - Joe Gartrell of History Press connected with me and he had a vision that there was a book to be developed from my blog. Well, big kudos to my publisher History Press (http://www.historypress.net) for all the support in the world. Listen, I hope you will join me at my last book signing this year. It would be a thrill to see everyone in Cleveland again and we could chat about Cleveland and its wonderful history.

A Wonderful LIfe in Cleveland....

Laura, while I appreciate the undercurrent of positive things trying to see the light of day in our town....I'd rather keep cleaning out the issues that have been swept beneath the rug for a few generations until they are resolved....
