Friends of the Library Spring Programs

2008-12-05 13:08:20

This spring, the Friends of the Library is planning a number of exciting programs. The ever-popular Richard Fox, Head of the Popular Library at CPL, will return to lead two book discussions:

  • Wednesday, March 4, 2009. Supreme Courtship by bestselling author Christopher Buckley. In this hilarious novel, the President of the United States, ticked off at the Senate for rejecting his nominees, decides to get even by nominating America's most popular TV judge to the Supreme Court (excerpt from Twelve Publishers). Supreme Courtship is on sale now at the CSU Bookstore and available for checkout at the Library.

  • Thursday, May 7, 2009. Rebel Angels by Robertson Davies. 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). Rebel Angels is available for checkout at the CSU Library and on sale at

And, on Wednesday, April 15, 2009, the Friends Local Authors Book Talk Series continues. Cleveland author Kristin Ohlson will visit CSU to discuss her experiences in Afghanistan and her book Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil (co-written with Deborah Rodriguez). There will also be a question and answer session followed by a book signing. Books will be on sale courtesy of the CSU bookstore.
Kabul Beauty School is a remarkable tale of an extraordinary community of women who come together and learn the arts of perms, friendship, and freedom. Kristin Ohlson's book is on sale now at the CSU bookstore and available for checkout from the CSU Library.

Refreshments will be provided at all these events, which are free and open to the public. They will all be held in the Library, RT 503 at 3:00. Call 216-875-9734 for more information.
