    Author’s Night is one of 20 unique events being celebrated during Cleveland History Days

    Cleveland’s history is America’s history. Predicted for greatness by George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. A city founded on the shores of Lake Erie. Shaped by a crooked Cuyahoga River that defined its identity and grew its wealth. A wealth fueled by the many immigrant groups who settled here. It is a city that emerged from the Gilded Age as a leader in policy and programs, building not only a great city but a greater civilization. This same river would catch fire on a hot summer day in June of 1969. It became a poster child of a national movement to save the environment. Today, industrial freighters share a clean Cuyahoga River with wildlife and recreational watercraft. Cleveland is writing a new chapter in its comeback story.

Laura has also written for the Cleveland Free Times, Cleveland Scene, Alternative Press, Magnet magazine and publications of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. A third-generation Clevelander, she grew up listening to her grandmother’s and parents’ stories of Euclid Beach Park, Municipal Stadium and downtown department stores and loves to share these with new generations.
