Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615993494, Paperback)"In a highly readable and penetrating look back, historian and author Carol Poh shows the City Club's century-long evolution from spunky, irreverent social club to acclaimed Citadel of Free Speech and the lively (and we do mean lively!) exchange of ideas about the Great Issues and sometimes Earth-shaking Events that have shaped 21st Century America-and Cleveland. In the second half of the book, which takes its place alongside two earlier histories, the most memorable moments from the past 26 years of the City Club's Friday Forums are splendidly captured by Poh, photographer Sam Adamo and award-winning designer Tom Barnard. Adamo's crisp, often revealing portraits-he was there almost every Friday for all of those last 26 years, crouching unobtrusively among the tables in the often packed dining room-catch the moments, the faces, the passion, the expressions of speakers surprised by a searing question from a concerned citizen or one of the movers and shakers who have gathered each Friday noon (originally Saturday) since 1912 to put the purveyors of new ideas and social gospels to the test." --Dennis Dooley, former broadcaster and journalist
