Hi Lakewood Library
I grew up in Lakewood, Ohio, which is the first suburb west of Cleveland. I had an opportunity to stop by the newly remodeled Lakewood Public Library not long ago and I was very happy to see my book in the stacks next to my brother John's novels Leaving Las Vegas, Stripper Lessens and The Assault on Tony's. I was even happier to see that my book was worn and dog-eared.
Thanks, Lakewood Public Library.
As happenstance would have it, I will be the keynote speaker for the inaugural meeting of the Literary Creativity and Invention Club at Lakewood Public Library's Main Branch , 15425 Detroit Avenue, at at 7 p.m. on April 1. I'll be talking about writing in general and how how everyday life fuels my Rainy Day Woman column. This event is free.
Hope to see some of you there!
