‘Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland’ Book Release Party

Tue 5/1 @ 7 – 9PM

Be at Big Dog Theater for the release of Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland, a book that’s part history book and part valentine to Cle by “one of the pioneers of the graphic novel.” Event includes an informal panel w/ Harvey Pekar’s wife Joyce Brabner, illustrator Joseph Remnant, Josh Frankel, president of Zip Comics and the book’s editor Jeff Newelt.

About the book: “Harvey Pekar’s Cleveland covers familiar American Splendor-ous territory while weaving in chunks of Cleveland history, including the Indians winning the 1948 World Series, the notorious 1969 fire on the Cuyahoga River as well as profiles of Cleveland ‘characters’ like Charles Ruthenberg, leader of the city’s Communist party whose ashes were buried in the Kremlin wall. And of course cameos by Pekarverse regulars like Mr.Boats, Toby and Harvey’s wife Joyce.”
