Virtual Book Discussion | Cleveland A to Z

Virtual Book Discussion | Cleveland A to Z

Join WRHS Senior Vice President of Research and Publications and Kreiger Mueller Historian John Grabowski for a discussion of his book, Cleveland A to Z, a very different guide to Cleveland.

Cleveland A to Z is not a typical city guide. Rather than concentrating solely on the usual topics —landmarks, restaurants, shopping, and notable facts — this guide touches on deeper themes related to Cleveland’s people, places, stories, and events. Dr. Grabowski will provide a sampling of the 72 articles in the book that examine the city’s rich history, while also hinting at the issues, attitudes, and even the quirks that define Cleveland’s character. Cleveland A to Z is an ideal entry point for a fuller exploration of the city’s history.

Get ready for the discussion by purchasing a copy of Cleveland A to Z at our Online Museum Store!
