Congrats to Fiona Staples on her Harvey award nomination for her work on everyone’s favorite book, Saga. Which just happens to be written by Clevelander Brian K. Vaughan.
It has been a busy and exciting week for GeekCLE. We’ve been scheduling new events and meeting new people with a lot of interest in getting involved. Thank you to everyone that’s shown support for GeekCLE. If you are interested in getting involved, let us know!
Heather Tripp is joining our staff. She will be heading the Official GeekCLE Book Club which will meet once a month to discuss a predetermined book. We are kicking it off with Chuck Klosterman’s “I Wear The Black Hat”, a collection of essays about villains. Heather has a lot of great ideas for future events that we hope to be announcing later on.
Our series of crafting events begins at Salty not Sweet in Ohio City with melting plastic beads into multicolored shapes. Come make keychains, necklaces, coasters, and art from perler beads!
Other happenings include Show and Tell coming to the east side and if you missed them, photos from the last Show and Tell. Plus, here’s a teaser, we’ve been working with Ohio City Writers to put together a few events we hope to be announcing in coming weeks.
We also would like to officially announce the birth of GeekCLE 3 Panels, an open invitation to Clevelanders to create a comic that is three panels in duration. The top submissions will be featured in a weekly post and site users will be able to give the creator feedback.
But enough about us, here is what you can do in Cleveland this week.
Tonight head over to the Cleveland Public Library Walz Branch for Books and Brews where you can learn about brewing at home. Following the talk, attendees are welcome to show their CPL card at XYZ the Tavern for happy hour prices.
Kids are highly recommended to take the Ohio City Writers – Telling Stories in Comic Books. The will be creating their own comic books and will learn how any story can be told in this visual medium.
Make sure to sign up your kids for next week’s Summer Discovery Camp – “Fairytale Science” at the Children’s Museum where your little prince or princess will make the story come alive with science experiments inspired by favorite fairy tales.
What do you have planned this week?
