The Learned Owl Book Shop is hosting Irv Korman on October 19 from 1-3pm. Korman will be signing his new novel, A Mess and Andy. Andy has a messy room. No matter how hard his mom and dad try, nothing will convince Andy to clean it up and keep it clean. Then one day, Andy's room is neat and tidy. Who is behind the clean-up? When the mystery is solved, you might not believe your eyes! A resident of Akron, Ohio for over 70 years, Irv Korman is an author, entertainment writer, theater critic, actor, clown, and magician. He was a speech and language therapist for the Akron Public Schools for 30 years and a Senior Lecturer in The School of Communication for The University of Akron for 13 years.
