It's called Artistry of Words
, but the Lee Road Library celebration features more than just books, authors, and poets. The two-day fest (which started yesterday) also includes live music, workshops, and sidewalk art activities. Plus, a pair of experts will show you how to preserve family documents, while a local artist reveals how to make a purse out of an old book. But a huge chunk of today's festivities revolve around people who use words for a living: Roaming TV personality and writer Neil Zurcher talks about his travel guides, author Michael Ruhlman discusses House: A Memoir
, and Cleveland Heights poet laureate Loren Weiss conducts the closing ceremonies.
