J. Mark Souther with Believing in Cleveland (Nov 4)

Cleveland author J. Mark Souther will be at The Learned Owl Book Shop on Saturday, November 4th, from 1 to 3 p.m., with his book "Believing in Cleveland".  The book recounts the long, difficult history of a city that entered the postwar period as America's sixth largest, then lost ground during a period of robust national growth. But rather than tell a tale of decline, Souther provides a fascinating story of resilience for what some folks called "The Best Location in the Nation".
