John J. Grabowski, a historian and professor who’s written Cleveland A to Z, and Alan F. Dutka [pictured], a researcher and speaker who’s written Cleveland Millionaires’ Row will speak at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, at Visible Voice Books for a joint book talk and signing.

"These authors take two different approaches — surveying a variety of critical moments in the region's development and diving deep into a specific topic —that illuminate Cleveland's rich history and help us appreciate how we arrived at this point in time," says Visible Voice Manager Aaron Terkel in a press release about the event.

Cleveland A to Z features 72 short articles about real people, places and events that reveal the issues, attitudes and quirks that define our fine town. Grabowski originally developed the book for the Western Reserve Historical Society’s 150th anniversary celebration, and almost every historical photo is pulled from its collection.

Cleveland's Millionaire's Row “examines a particular point in the city's development—a moment when extravagant monuments to the immense wealth and power lined Euclid Avenue.” It includes visuals and “well-researched commentary.”

Admission is free. There will be food and beverages (including beer, wine and coffee) and books available for purchase.
