While on assignment as a theater critic for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Connors was raped at knife point.

Her journalism awards include the 2008 Medill Medal for Courage in Journalism from Northwestern University, and Columbia University’s Dart Award for Excellence in Coverage of Trauma for her series of pieces in The Cleveland Plain Dealer about her rape and eventual decision to track down the man who did it.

Join us as we discuss Guns, Germs and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies by Jared Diamond, the 1998 Pulitzer Prize winner for Nonfiction.

In his groundbreaking work, an evolutionary biologist stunningly dismantles racially-based theories of human history by revealing the environmental factors actually responsible for history's broadest patterns. The story spans 13,000 years of human history, beginning when Stone Age hunter-gatherers constituted the entire human population. The book is actually a history of all the world's peoples, a unified narrative of human life.

Poetry in the Woods begins its 2016-2017 series with poets Katie Daley, Mary Greer and Maj Ragain.
Although she could name literary magazines she's been published in, Katie Daley thinks it's more important for you to know that in her time, she's scrubbed the toilets of poets and mowed the fairways of gangsters. She's performed her one-woman show of poetic monologues across the US and received two Individual Creativity Excellence Awards from the Ohio Arts Council and a fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Currently, she's working on a memoir about the 18-month journey she took in 1975 hitching and migrant-working her way through America.

Mary Greerhas been writing poetry since the mid 1960s. The retired English teacher from Hudson High School began to write more intentionally and found her way to Maj Ragain's class at Kent State. Thanks to him, old work surfaced and new work poured out. All her poetry from those decades centered on the life-sustaining messages she found in seasons, trees, cornfields, soil, her garden, baking bread, the wind.

In 2009, after initial research on fracking, she changed her focus. Her hope of growing old "gently" while looking out her back windows over a little lake and into the sky came to an end. So much grief, no poetry possible. After five years of research on the impact of fossil fuels, chemicals, and climate crisis, she seems to experience grief and hope simultaneously. She has given many presentations on Class 2 toxic waste wells and trekked through four counties. That's the grief side.

Her recent poetry collection parallels two old voices that speak to her now: the cry of Jeremiah, the Biblical prophet, who warned his nation that it had caused its own end; and the home-going of Odysseus, who fought to reclaim his own against all odds. Odysseus's faithfulness to his mission is the hope side.


Maj Ragain received his bachelor’s degree in English from Eastern Illinois University and earned a MA in English at the University of Illinois. He has been an “off and on” faculty member at Kent State University since 1969, where he obtained his Ph.D. His books include A Hungry Ghost Surrenders His Tackle Box; Fresh Oil, Loose Gravel; Burley One Dark Sucker Fired; A Little Bastard Book for Buddha; and Twist the Axe: A Horseplayer’s Story. This summer, a New and Selected Poems will be published. The recipient of three Artist Fellowships from the Ohio Arts Council and a fellowship from the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts, he also works with a veterans’ writing circle through Kent State’s Wick Poetry Center and with Warriors’ Journey Home, another Kent-area veterans’ initiative.

A very suspenseful and timely thriller about a private eye trying to make a scandal involving a supreme court judge disappear. This is the latest in the series with Nick Heller as the central character. Very strong plot which gets a little contrived toward the end but is still a good story.  Shaker Heights Public Library Catalog
