Wed 11/6 @ 7PM
What the “best book of all time” is depends entirely on who you are and what resonates with you. And any list of “1,000 Books to Read Before You Die,” the title of a 2018 tome by author James Mustich, is going to be more material for debate than an edict to be taken seriously (My own list would waste almost no slots on novels and be packed with books on art, music and the history of cities).
Want to roll your eyes publicly at his choices? He’ll be at the Parma-Snow branch of the Cuyahoga County Public Library to lead a “Battle of the Best Books” event, pitting against each other former Plain Dealer columnist Regina Brett, ideastream’s Rick Jackson, literary activist Reverend Dr. Leah Davis, book expert Rosa Ransom and author/CWRU faculty member Brad Ricca (who has written a book about the Cleveland duo who created Superman). Each will try to defend their choice for the best book of all time.
You’ll be able to vote for the best book, try the green-screen photo station and enjoy free refreshments. There will be copies of Mustich’s book available for sale and signing, courtesy of Mac’s Backs on Coventry.
It’s free; register here.
