Upcoming NOBS Events:
September 17th, 7:00pm
NOBS Forum: Stacie Murray: Godey’s Lady’s Book
Godey’s Lady’s Book was more than just a woman’s fashion magazine. It was published for 68 years from 1830 to 1898 and, although known for its fashion plates illustrating the latest styles, the magazine dealt with women’s issues of the 19th century. It also had a wealth of stories and poems by famous writers. It was edited by a woman, Sarah Josepha Hale, from 1837-1877. We will examine its contents and its influence on American culture of the time. We will also look at some precursors to the magazine. Stacie Murry has worked in the Ingalls Library of The Cleveland Museum of Art for 30 years. She has an M.A. in Art History from CWRU.
All NOBS Forums are FREE and open to the public.
The forum will be held at Loganberry Books, 13015 Larchmere Boulevard, Shaker Heights 44120. There are many events at Loganberry Books. See their website for more details on upcoming events, including NOBS Forums.

2014 Cleveland Antiquarian Book & Paper Show
The NOBS Fourth Annual Cleveland Book Show returns to the Cleveland Skating Club, 2500 Kemper Rd., Cleveland, November 2, 2014 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.. Two dozen dealers have signed on and others are inquiring, some from out of state.
A wide variety of dealers in old, used, and rare books and paper collectibles will set up booths for the one-day Antiquarian Book and Paper Show. It’s like a paper museum where everything is for sale! And you don’t have to be a “collector” to take part. From books centuries old, bound in leather or vellum, to modern gems already out-of-print, the Cleveland Antiquarian Book and Paper Show offers a wide variety. Dealers may specialize in modern first editions of literature, military history, Ohioana, children’s and illustrated books, postcards and ephemera, or beautiful leather-bound sets. There’s a little something for everyone.
Guests of the NOBS Cleveland Antiquarian Book & Paper Show may also bring along up to three books of their own for a free evaluation a la Antiques Road Show.
The Skating Club is located near the Shaker parks, as well as Shaker Square and the Larchmere Antiques district. General Admission is $5. Student Admission is $3. Admission is FREE for NOBS members.
