The Company of Demons

Author Appearance: Michael Jordan
Friday, January 12 @ 7pm - FREE

Don't miss your chance to join Michael Jordan in celebrating the release of his debut mystery thriller. In  The Company of Demons,  a friend's brutal murder of a friend leaves lawyer John Coleman stunned and sends shock waves throughout Cleveland. The technique of the killing recalls memories of the Torso Murderer, who dismembered at least 12 people decades ago and then eluded even legendary crime fighter Eliot Ness. When John finds himself entangled with a cold-blooded biker gang, an ex-cop with a fuzzy past, and the drug-addicted son of the dead man, he struggles to make sense of it all.  

Find out what authors and reviewers have said about this much anticipated release.

Comedian Steven Wright jokes, " A lot of people ask me if I were shipwrecked and could only have one book, what would it be? I always say, 'How to Build a Boat.'"   Have a few books that wouldn't be on your desert island list? We might be interested in taking them off your shelves and putting them on ours.

Socks, Sports, Rock and Art

Discussion & Book Signing: Mike Belkin & Carlo Wolff 
Friday, January 19 @ 7pm - FREE

In 1959, after chasing a professional baseball career in the Milwaukee Braves farm system, Mike Belkin was making a name for himself in the Belkin family clothing business. But very soon, the name of this son of Russian immigrants would become synonymous with top-quality live music shows and spectacular festivals - and he would become known as one of the architects of the rock 'n' roll industry. Part memoir, part history of rock 'n' roll, this biography is a success story of an immigrant son breaking new ground in rock entertainment. It is also the story of a man's passion for art and life.
