On June 1st, the Harcourt Manor at the top of Cedar Hill was filled with friends of Literary Cleveland celebrating at "A Lit Summer Night, 2019." In that magnificent setting, 150 people enjoyed food, drink and each other's company as substantial funds were raised to support the programs of Lit Cleveland.
Highlights of the event included entertaining readings by Dave Lucas (Poet Laureate of Ohio), Damien McClendon (Poet Laureate of Cleveland Heights), and Cleveland's own international poet-ambassador Ray McNiece. Christine Howey, executive director of Lit Cleveland, announced the organization's new brand identity, new brochure and new website.
The joyous event marked the beginning of an exciting period of growth for the organization. Thanks to all who attended for supporting Literary Cleveland, where, as our new tagline says, you can "Explore other voices; discover your own."
