Cleveland Stories

Mt. Pleasant residents share personal stories at Cleveland Stories: Vol 1 release party

On Wed. 10/24, Mt. Pleasant residents and participants of our Cleveland Stories community writing program gathered at Seeds of Literacy for the release of Cleveland Stories: Vol 1, a printed anthology of poems, personal stories, and essays by individuals with a strong connection to Mt. Pleasant and surrounding areas on Cleveland's southeast side.

Attendees enjoyed readings by anthology contributors, who shared compelling tales of growing up in Mt. Pleasant, as well as reflections on how the neighborhood and Cleveland proper has changed over time, among other topics.

Our sincere gratitude goes out to everyone who contributed a story to this anthology, and to all who joined us in supporting and celebrating the voices of Mt. Pleasant residents throughout our Cleveland Stories program. Purchase a copy of Cleveland Stories: Vol 1 here, and be sure to check out the many oral history interviews and photographs we've uploaded as well.
