Disaster Piece

When: Sat., Feb. 15, 2 p.m. 2014

Loganberry Books tends to host quirky authors, but tonight’s reading should be a blast for lovers of Cleveland history and the bizarre. Local author Alan F. Dutka has written a book called Cleveland Calamities which is exactly what it sounds like — a history of all the awful geological and meteorological disasters visited upon Cleveland. No more generic sports tragedies here. This shit is bizarre: A pseudo tidal wave once pounded the Lake Erie shore from Bay Village to the Pennsylvania border! A phantom ice age caused scientists to predict that glaciers would return to Cleveland! A river burned! Mayflies swarmed downtown by the millions! Citizens hurled rocks at volunteer firefighters! This stuff is awesome. Come out to Loganberry Books today at 2 p.m. for the reading and conversation with the author. And dive into this book. We’ve taken a pass through it ourselves and it’s insane.
