Picnicking at North Chagrin Reservation, awaiting the return of the buzzards at Hinkley Reservation, tobogganing down the slide at the Mill Stream Run Reservation, horseback riding at Big Creek... most of us can reminisce of time well-spent at one of Cleveland's sixteen Metroparks.
Cleveland Memory revisits some of those experiences with its new collection of images, "The Photographs of the Cleveland Metroparks," over 100 photos representing 9 of Cleveland's Metroparks, Ohio's oldest park district.

Richard Fox, Head of the Popular Library at CPL, will return to lead a book discussion on The Rebel Angels by Robertson Davies. In this astoundingly funny book, Davies both lampoons academia and shows his love for it and for the wisdom it produces.
On one level, Davies' novel is "about" four academics: Maria Theotoky, the brilliant, beautiful graduate student; her adviser, the ascetic Dr. Hollier; Simon Darcourt, the bon vivant priest; and Parlabane, once an outstanding scholar, now sycophant to his former classmates. Then there is the basic plot theme: Who will end up with the girl? Standard stuff. Yet the real focus here is on the spiritual and/or mystical personal explorations of the main characters (from Library Journal review).
The Rebel Angels is available for checkout at the CSU Library and on sale at Amazon.com.
The event is free and open to CSU faculty, staff, and students and to the general public. Refreshments will be served.
Call 216-875-9734 or email email@example.com to reserve a seat or for more information.
Glenallen, also known as Glen Allen, was the Cleveland Heights estate of Elisabeth Severance Allen Prentiss built in 1914. Known for its landscaping, which included a Japanese Garden with a goldfish pond and a Korean Pavilion shipped directly from Korea, the interior of the estate featured inlaid oak floors, marble fireplaces, fine art, and a carved mahogany woodwork.
