Meets at NighttownJoin Lute Quintrell and Ed Alix
for a glass of wine and spirited book discussion!

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.”

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!
