Author’s Alley, that is, the annual book extravaganza hosted by Loganberry Books of the Larchmere District. Author Carlo Wolff unveiled his new Invisible Soul, an uncovering of Cleveland’s vibrant soul music scene of the 50s to the 1980s. Broadcast Journalist Leon Bibb grabbed an extra copy of Designing Victory the memoir of architect Robert Madison that Wolff co-authored. Fun fact: Bibb was the voice actor for the audio version. US Senator Sherrod Brown dropped in to snare his first edition copy of Invisible Soul. Act 3 published Invisible Soul, with additional contribution of Act 3 co-founders James O’Hare (co-author), Ron Hill (illustrator) and Jaime Lombardo (cover design).
Evoking the Creole classic, the triumphant, trumpet heavy “When the Saints Go Marching In” is the revered anthem for the city of New Orleans. How appropriate to invoke that song as scary Halloween transitions to All Saints Day then All Souls Day, and Act 3 reflects on its work in helping some “Saints.”
