September at Appletree Books

In Appletree Book’s Windows:
Morgan Conservatory
Our store windows in September feature works from
Cleveland’s own Morgan Conservatory.The Morgan will be displaying original artworks, including marbled paper, handbound books, prints, and more. The Morgan Conservatory is the largest arts center in the United States dedicated to every facet of papermaking, book arts and letterpress printing and to cultivating the talents of established and emerging artists. An international destination that is free and open to the public, the Morgan Conservatory is a working studio, gallery, gathering place for the community, educational hub and purveyor of some of the finest handmade papers in the world.

The Morgan will also be bringing dried kozo fiber from their urban garden. The Morgan’s Sam Caraboolad Garden is a kozo (paper mulberry tree) grove dedicated to growing kozo fiber that is used traditionally in Asian papermaking. By growing the raw material onsite, they not only avoid the sizeable expense of importing the fibers from Asia, but also create a self-sustaining cycle of papermaking.

On Appletree Book’s Walls:
Jessica Coven Stenson and
William A. Stenson, aka, Andy
Our artists this month are
Jessica Coven Stenson and
William A. (Andy) Stenson.
Jessica and Andy Stenson live in Shaker Heights. They own and operate a wood-working business that focuses on food-related wood products, salad bowls, cutting boards, and wooden spoons. They sell their handcrafted products year round at the Shaker Square farmers market.

When Jessica is not carving spoons, she draws flowers from life, photos, and memory. Using all kinds materials, chalk pastel, makeup, bits of found broken jewelry, Jessica, seeks to make the ephemeral gesture of giving flowers a little less fleeting.

Andy’s intention as an artist has always been to create beauty. He uses symmetry and geometry to reference the natural world with both his imagery and use of wood while exercising skilled craftsmanship.

Banned Books Week falls in September (23-29),
and in honor of our freedom to read, we chose
the classically contested novel of angsty adolescence,

Catcher in the Rye
(Back Bay Books)
by J.D. Salinger

“Perhaps the most contested book in recent history, The Catcher in the Rye was removed from schools, challenged by parents, and generally loathed by educational authorities beginning less than a decade after publication. In 1982, school libraries in Morris, Manitoba removed the book because it violated district guidelines covering ‘excess vulgar language, sexual scenes, things concerning moral issues, excessive violence, and anything dealing with the occult.’ Or, as a Dorchester District 2 school board member in Summerville, South Carolina said more succinctly in 2001, because it ‘is a filthy, filthy book.’ Apparently, 65 million readers in over thirty languages can be wrong.”
Customers who register for this month’s book group are eligible for a
10% discount on this month’s book.  To register, stop in the store, call us
at (216) 791-2665, email us at info@appletree-books.com,

Please Note! 
Attendees at September’s book group will choose
the mystery to be read for October.
Heights Music Hop
on Cedar-Fairmount

Friday, September 14, 6-9:30pm

Two acts join us at Appletree Books for the
6th Annual Heights Music Hop!

Baker’s Basement, 6-7:30pm
Baker’s Basement is a two-piece, multi-instrumental band from Cleveland  that specializes in music rooted in space, dynamics, humor, and the unpredictable nature of life as a human.  Members Kate Dedinsky and Adam Grindler are obsessive songwriters, composing more with a specific emotion, story, or image in mind rather than a particular genre.  Having created music that utilizes banjo, electric guitar, drums, tempeh pocket kit, paint buckets, shot glasses, vocals, train whistle, synth, keyboard, guillele, acoustic guitar, harmonica, loops, drum pad, and sound effects, instrumentation and style are simply vessels used to portray the appropriate mood and texture called for by the composition at hand.  And given their obsession with writing and the creative process, new songs are constantly being composed and delivered hot and gooey straight from the oven.
Megan Sullivan, 8-9:30pm
Megan Sullivan is an active freelance violinist.  She has performed numerous concerts, weddings, and parties with varying repertoire and genres.  She is currently a member of the Firelands Symphony in Sandusky, Ohio, and has been a substitute with several other regional orchestras.  Equally passionate about contemporary music, she has played with bands such as The Rainbow Emergency (neo-soul), Remember Jones (pop/soul), The Dan Varner Band (country), The Hootz (country/rock), and more.  Megan has taught many private violin students throughout the last five years, from ages four to 65!
