The Annual Lantern Awards

When: Sat., Sept. 11 2010

Two of Scene's own — Arts Editor Michael Gill and cartoonist Derf — are in line to be honored at tonight's Lantern Awards, the annual celebration of Cleveland's literary luminaries. Sponsored by the LIT (formerly the Poets' and Writers' League of Greater Cleveland), tonight's soiree includes a tribute to the late Harvey Pekar — yet another artiste with ties to this humble rag. Tickets are $35, but upgrade to $50 for bonus admission to the Turn of the Page after-party at the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative. Note that hobnobbing with regional literary celebrities is more gratifying than hobnobbing with rock stars because of both vocab and approachability. (Also, oddly enough, native sex appeal.) It all happens downtown at the Palace Theatre, 1615 Euclid Ave. Call 216-241-6000 or go to for tickets. — Allard
