The best-laid schemes of mice and men go often askew

Robert Burns, poet

Before the closures due to the pandemic, the Ohio Center for the Book at Cleveland Public Library had planned a series of workshops and lectures in collaboration with Free Comic Book Day 2020 at Carol & John’s Comic Book Shop in Cleveland, Ohio. (The same business highlighted by Gov. Dewine for best practices in re-opening!) Needless to say, those plans went “askew.”

Our Scholar-in-Residence, Dr. Valentino Zullo, had even contacted Sina Grace (yes, the Sina Grace) to create a poster for event attendees.

We were very disappointed that we couldn’t host our panelists and share the poster with everyone, but then came the announcement of Free Comic Book Summer! While we can’t host our planned programming right now, we can share Sina’s wonderful poster depicting the Cleveland skyline and scenes from Cleveland Public Library and Carol & John’s Comic Book Shop. Check out his artwork below!
