In All Access: Cleveland—The Rock and Roll Photography of Janet Macoska, her new book that she's co-authored with local writer Peter Chakerian, she documents 40 years of shooting rock concerts in Cleveland. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will host a live program with her at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30, in the Museum’s Foster Theater. Macoska and Chakerian will discuss the book.
