The "No Impact Man" Colin Beavan Comes to CSU

Colin Beavan on BookTV
Colin Beavan on BookTV
CSPAN Sept. 10, 2009

Cleveland State University students participating in the Common Reading Experience have the opportunity to see and hear Colin Beavan, author of this year's book selection, in person as he comes to CSU to discuss his book, No Impact Man, on Thursday, October 7th at noon in the Student Center Ballroom. A book signing will follow from 2-3 pm.

No Impact Man: The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet, and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life in the Process is the chronicle of Beavan's attempt to live a year without making a net impact on the environment. The lifestyles of Beavan, his wife, and young daughter in New York City were put to the challenge as they learned to function without elevators, the subway, packaged food, air conditioning, television, toilet paper and many other ammenities we take for granted.

As a result of his "experiment" and the ensuing book and documentary film, Beavan has brought attention to such environmental issues as food system sustainability, climate change, water scarcity, and materials and energy resource depletion. Through his non-profit, the No Impact Project, he empowers "citizens to make choices which better their lives and lower their environmental impact through lifestyle change, community action, and participation in environmental politics." - Colin Beavan Bio.

Find out more about upcoming Common Reading Experience events.

The Fire Inside: The Story and Poetry of Nikki Giovanni

Cleveland Public Library will host the debut stage reading of the Karamu House production of "The Fire Inside: The Story and Poetry of Nikki Giovanni," on Saturday, February 17 at 3:00 p.m. in the Louis Stokes Wing Auditorium, the Main Library, 325 Superior Avenue.

Written by Susan Watson Turner and directed by Terrence Spivey, artistic director of Karamu, "The Fire Inside" presents an ensemble cast in a dramatization of the life and works of the dynamic African American poet. The script follows Giovanni's career from her early years in the Black Arts Movement through her writing and life today.

The play will make its world debut in July at Cleveland's annual Ingenuity Festival.

Giovanni was born in 1943 in Knoxville, Tennessee, but grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. She graduated with honors from Fisk University and has been on the faculty at Virginia Tech since 1987. Her fiery first book of poems, Black Feeling, Black Talk (1968) sold more than 10,000 copies. That book and others such as Re: Creation (1970), Poem of Angela Yvonne Davis (1970) and The Women and the Men (1975), comprised a powerful statement on African-American womanhood and established her as one of the leading figures of the Black Arts Movement

The Cleveland State University Michael Schwartz Library presents "The Great Lakes Exposition: 75th Anniversary" exhibit through August 12, 2011.

Held in the summers of 1936 and 1937, the Great Lakes Exposition was sprawled over 135 acres of land near Cleveland's lakefront from W. 3rd Street to East 20th Street.

Organized to celebrate the centennial year of the corporation of the city of Cleveland, the Great Lakes Exposition sought to highlight "the material, social and cultural progress which has been achieved in the Great Lakes Region in the past 100 years" and to "indicate the paths of progress for the future."

The Exposition featured hundreds of attractions, including rides, sideshows, botanical gardens, cafes, international communities, and more.

The Library Exhibit, located on the first floor of the Michael Schwartz Library, contains an assortment of photos, publications, and memorabilia, including postcards, souvenir books, pennants, matchbook covers, jewelry boxes, figurines, and much more! There is also a video which includes historical footage of the Exposition of 1936 and 1937.

The exhibit material was provided by Edward Oshaben, a private collector of Great Lakes Exposition memorabilia and Board Member of the Slovenian Museum and Archives. Additional images and materials were provided by the Michael Schwartz Library Special Collections.

For more information, visit Cleveland Memory's Great Lakes Exposition web page or call 216-687-6998.

The Great Lakes Exposition exhibit is open for viewing to the Campus Community and the general public during regular Library hours.

The Veterans Memorial Bridge Book is Now on SALE

The Veterans Memorial Bridge Book
90th Anniversary Edition by William E. Beyer

View of the Veterans Memorial Bridge

The Veterans Memorial Bridge, formerly known as the Detroit-Superior of High Level Bridge, is an unusual and outstanding example of early twentieth-century bridge engineering. The double decked structure spans the Cuyahoga River Valley adjacent to downtown Cleveland, Ohio and consists of twelve concrete arch approach spans with lengths varying between 80 feet and 180 feet, and a 591-foot long steel arch main river span. The bridge was constructed as a replacement for the old Superior Viaduct, which spanned the Cuyahoga River immediately north of the Detroit-Superior Bridge. The upper deck of the structure was designed to carry highway and pedestrian traffic whereas the lower deck was designed for streetcar traffic. The approaches to the lower deck of the structure included subway tunnels and passenger stations for the streetcars. The first traffic crossed the upper deck of the new bridge in November 1917, and the first streetcars crossed the lower deck in December 1917.

The History of the Veterans Memorial Bridge: 90th Anniversary Edition by William Beyer documents the history of the original construction of the bridge and the two major rehabilitations - the first was done from 1967 to 1969 and the second was done from 1995 to 1997. Some technical information is included, which may be of interest to some readers. However, the major emphasis of the book is the documentation of the history of the bridge and the surrounding community with photographs. The photographs offer a unique opportunity to glimpse into previous eras in Cleveland. It is hoped that the reader will enjoy a journey through the planning, design, construction and rehabilitation of this structure - and develop an understanding and appreciation for the importance of maintaining and, whenever feasible, preserving notable structures such as the Detroit-Superior Bridge, which remain today.

Through Students' Eyes - On Display in the Library

A view of some of the photos in the exhibit
The Through Students' Eyes photography exhibit is on display now at the CSU Library. The photos were taken by several students from Lincoln-West High School in the Clark-Fulton neighborhood. These juniors and seniors snapped pictures with point-and-shoot cameras in the effort answer these questions: What purpose does school serve in your life? What pushes you away from school? What helps you achieve academically?

Each photo bears a caption such as "Teachers that Trust You", "The Glue in my Life", "Working Hard", and "People From Different Backgrounds Come Together", and each photo includes a short explanation of what the image means. Xidi Z. writes about his photo, Teachers That Trust You:
This is Tony "Fresh" Velez, and he is part of CCB (Cleveland City Breakers), a break dancing group, and he is also in drama club at Lincoln-West. The drama teacher lets him do his break dancing and plan all the dancing in school plays, even in the Christmas Carol play. Some teachers may not trust you enough to do that. But that's what keeps guys like him in school.
Don't miss this brief glimpse into the the live's of Cleveland's school children.

The Through Students' Eyes project was conceived by local educators and community activists:
  • James Harmon is a veteran city teacher who was laid off recently from Lincoln-West, and now helps train new teachers at Cleveland State University.
  • Kristien Marquez-Zenkov is a former teacher who directs an urban teaching program at Cleveland State University.
  • Piet Van Lier is a reporter, photographer, and associate editor at Catalyst Cleveland.
To view all the photos in the exhibit, visit www.throughstudentseyes.org and click on "galleries."

Turning Darkness into Light: Pain, Bliss, Autism: A Special Common Reading Event Open to all CSU Faculty, Staff, and Students

Eight Griffins... by Seth Chwast
Eight Griffins Above the Rainforest in Costa Rica
by Seth Chwast
To kick-off the spring Cleveland State University Common Reading Experience, featured speaker Debra Chwast will give her inspirational story of the challenges and joys of raising her son, Seth, who was diagnosed with autism as a young child and later discovers his talent to create beautiful, large oil paintings. Her presentation titled "Turning Darkness into Light: Pain, Bliss, Autism" will be held on Tuesday, February 19, at noon on the first floor of Library, located in Rhodes Tower. (POSTPONED FROM FEBRUARY 12 DUE TO BAD WEATHER)

The related painting exhibition titled "A Different Kind of Journey: The Paintings of Seth Chwast" will be on display on the first floor of the Library during the month of February.

The brown bag event is free and open to all CSU faculty, staff, and students and to the Cleveland Community.

Seth Chwast, who was diagnosed with autism as a very young child, has lived for years in a world of roller coasters, haunted houses, and classical music. A dramatic change came at age 20, when he took an oil painting class at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Seth, who rarely speaks but has a high non-verbal IQ, began describing his world in his paintings. It turned out that he has an innate ability to mix colors and create amazing, large oil paintings. Seth's work was recently featured on NBC's Today show and his art has been displayed in several exhibitions in the Cleveland area and is in art collections both in the Cleveland area and nationally.

To learn more about Seth's work or to purchase prints, note cards, and t-shirts, visit his website at www.sethchwast.org .

For more information about brown bag event or the exhibit at CSU Library, call 216-875-9734.
