Porter Library to host West Side Market talk
Laura Taxel, co-author of "Cleveland’s West Side Market: 100 Years and Still Cooking" will talk about the Market at Westlake Porter Public Library on Tuesday, March 19, at 7 p.m. To register for the event, please call 440-250-5460 or visit the library’s online calendar at signup.westlakelibrary.org:8080.
Taxel will talk about the two-year process of digging into historical records, interviewing people and collecting the memories that come to life in the book. She’ll share facts and stories from the book as well as a few things that didn’t make it into print. Come discover a whole world of foods, traditions and rituals that are part of the Market, and get a close-up on this iconic 100-year-old landmark. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing after the talk.
