Letters From Zora

Uploaded by karamu
Film and TV star Vanessa Bell Calloway returns to Karamu in this spirited two-act play featuring authentic personal letters from Zora Neale Hurston to close friends such as Langston Hughes and Countee Cullen. Fused with fictional narrative to illuminate her life, her extraordinary career and her contributions to the American literary canon, Calloway brings Hurston’s words to life. Performances of this spicy new play, written by Gabrielle Denise Pena and directed by Anita Dashiell-Sparks, will be held in the newly renovated, Jelliffe Theatre. Calloway stars as Zora in a “spellbounding and magnetic” performance as the Harlem Renaissance poet and author. The performance is 90 minutes with no intermission.

 Immigrant Son Brewing
18210 Sloane Ave., Lakewood 

If you land in the camp of critics who believe, without much empirical evidence, that Cleveland has too many breweries, know this: Immigrant Son is not your typical brewery (nor is it in Cleveland). Equal attention has been paid to the four main elements of the operation – beer, food, service and setting – so that even if you don’t happen to fancy a frosty pint of crisp, clean, straw-colored Kölsch, you needn’t sit there and squawk. Lakewood’s super popular first and only brewery is a full-on brewery and brewpub, with equal emphasis placed on both the food and beer.
