VIDEO: Joyce Brabner Picks Up Her Harvey Pekar Library Card at Cleveland Public Library


Watch as Joyce Brabner and Thomas Mulready perform a pas de deux in the lobby of the Cleveland Public Library as Brabner picks up her Harvey Pekar library card.

We are the people who go to The People’s University.”

Brabner and Harvey Pekar cherish the top-quality public libraries that we in Northeast Ohio enjoy. “If you look at my Facebook page… Oh god, don’t look at my Facebook page! Anyway, it says I was educated at public libraries.”
