Busy Times in Mystery Publishing

There is a lot of activity on the mystery front this time of year, including the release of many titles by popular mystery authors.  Here are some highlights:

Need Help Reading the Paper?

If you have a subscription to the new "e edition" of the Plain Dealer and are having a little trouble with it, the paper has released a video on how to use the app version. It is fairly fast-paced. While it does not cover the desktop version of the e edition, the app is pretty similar.

#Duck The Halls

Okay, I've been sitting on this for a week or so, but I wanted to make sure it was in the catalog before I posted. If you're a fan of Duck Dynasty, well, the Robertsons have recorded a Christmas album and October 29th is your lucky day!

UFO Program Follow-up

UFO Thankyou 3.jpg

Greetings EDGE Readers!

Thanks to all of you who attended our UFO program Wednesday night; we had a great group. Thanks, especially, to those of you who shared your personal experiences. If you didn't have a chance to do it after the program, you can submit your personal experience in written form on both the MUFON and the Cleveland Ufology Project websites. I spoke to Tom after the program and he suggests submitting it to the MUFON website, which will get it into the national database and the Cleveland Ufology Project will also have access to it.

I still have a few of the bibliographies, I put together, in the plastic holders on the end cap near the 100s dewey area. If you don't know where that is, ask at one of the public service desks and a staff member will show you.

Click here to accessTom's bibliography on the Cleveland Ufology website.

If you didn't turn in your evaluation sheet, I'm still interested in your input. If you took the form home with you, fill it out and turn it in the next time you're in the library. If you didn't take a copy with you you can email me at Ilona.Miklos@westlakelibrary.org with anything you would like to say about the program: what you liked about it, how it could be improved...

We're also interested in your suggestions for future programming on any topic. I promise to get them to the right people.

In addition, if you're interested in being notified of future programs by email, you can submit your email address to be added to our list.

UFOs in Trumbull County, Crop Circles in Chilicothe, Ohio, and more--Unexplained

ohio crop circles 2.jpg

Our speaker for this Wednesday's UFO program (7-8:30 in the Porter Room) has told me that he intends to focus in particular on three unexplained Ohio UFO cases:

A historical account of UFO sitings in Trumbull County involving 911 calls and communications between law enforcement officers. The original tapes of these conversations are mysteriously missing and it took two years for the backups to turn up.

An event involving a Crop Circle in Chilicothe, Ohio at the Hopewell Indian Mounds. This one is from last September.

And a third focus case will involve UFO sitings in the area of the old Nike missile base in Cleveland.

Don't forget to bring your own experience, you will have a chance to talk with Tom and the group about it and you can also turn it in to them in written form to be added to their database.

Register if you haven't already, in person at any public service desk, by calling 440-250-5460, or online by clicking HERE.

Check out the display of books on UFOs, Alien Life, Time Travel, etc. at the front of the library--and I'll see you there.

MUFON&CUPforBlog3.jpg

EDGE readers--want to JOIN MUFON or the Cleveland Ufology Project? A number of people have asked about this since our program last year.

Here's the scoop--you CAN join the Cleveland Ufology Project; MUFON doesn't have members, but you can SUBSCRIBE to their newsletter.

Cost to join the Cleveland Ufology Project is $25, which helps to cover the cost of renting the room they meet in.  Meetings are at 7:30 pm on the 3rd Saturday of every month at Tri-Cs western campus. Tom will be bringing flyers about this to our program on July 31.  You can also go to the organization's website at http://www.clevelandufo.com.

To subscribe to the MUFON of Ohio newsletter, go to http://www.mufonohio.com/mufono/index.html.  We can ask Tom about this too during or after the program on 7/31.

Reminder Edge readers--Registration is Required for our July 31 Program on UFO Activity in Ohio.  Sign-up in person at any public service desk, call 440-250-5460, or click HERE to register online via our Event Calendar.

I've been in communication with our speaker and he's anxious to learn of your personal experiences with UFOs: sitings, communications, abductions....  We're going to allot a full half hour for audience questions and comments.   So those of you who are not shy, come prepared to participate.

And everyone, if you've had an experience you'd like to share,  write it up and turn it in after the program to Tom or to me, or just leave it on the table with your evaluation and I'll be sure it gets to him.  The Cleveland Ufology Project is building a database of personal accounts.
