Go beyond The Shot, The Fumble and The Drive. Explore fascinating and almost forgotten moments of Cleveland sports lore with journalist Marc Bona, the author of The Hidden History of Cleveland Sports.

Bona will discuss stories from his new book during a free author talk at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, June 5, at our Main Branch. Learn about Cleveland’s ties to the invention of the slider and football’s first pass. Bona has also uncovered triumphs, tragedies and near misses from Cleveland basketball, hockey, boxing, baseball, football and more.

His talk is free to attend. Due to limited space, registration is required. Sign up online or by calling us at 440-255-8811 ext. 1. Bona’s books will be available for sale and signing afterward.
