10/3: Larry Smith at Visible Voice Books

Posted By on Thu, Oct 1, 2009 at 4:00 PM

Larry Smith spends a lot of energy and money publishing other authors’ poems and stories from and about Ohio and the Midwest through his Huron-based Bottom Dog Press. Now it’s his turn as writer. The Long River Home is a fictionalized account of Smith’s family roots in southern Ohio and West Virginia, blending stories he coaxed from relatives with imagined events (including some based on 19th-century census data). The prose is potent, earthy and matter-of-fact as Smith chronicles a family history from the dawn of the Civil War to just a few years after World War II. Smith will read and sign The Long River Home at 4 p.m. at Visible Voice Books (1023 Kenilworth Ave., 216.961.0084). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
