Author Scott Raab with You're Welcome, Cleveland

Author Scott Raab will discuss his latest book, You’re Welcome, Cleveland: How I Helped LeBron James Win a Championship and Save a City. Cleveland native Raab, well-known for his scathing account of LeBron James’ departure for Miami in his 2012 book, The Whore of Akron, returns to the subject, this time with forgiveness. You’re Welcome, Cleveland documents the first two years of LeBron James’ return to Cleveland and the Cavaliers’ historic NBA Championship win. 

Raab is a graduate of Cleveland State University and the University of Iowa’s Writers’ Workshop, where he became the only Hawkeye ever to earn both an MFA and All-Big 10 status (second team) as a kick-return specialist. Raab produced and appeared in the ESPN film, Believeland, a documentary about Cleveland sports fans. He has written for GQ and was a Writer-At-Large for Esquire for nineteen years.
