How about S? Because A for Akron is a splendid celebration of all of the spectacular things this city has to offer.
Authors and community enthusiasts Karen Starr and Joanna Wilson complied an A-Z list of people, places, and things unique to Akron. In the introduction, they are proud to admit that they are a part of "a generation completely comfortable with shouting its love for this town from the rooftops." This passion and commitment to Akron is evident in every page of the book. Whether you're a life long Akronite, have relocated or have plans of moving back, you will find yourself unmistakably indentifying with most if not all of the places and things Karen and Joanna included in their guide.
What I enjoyed the most about this book, aside from the highlights of my favorite things and places, including F is for Food, T is for Towpath, and S is for Stan Hywet, was the spark it lit up inside of me for this city. A is for Akron offers such vitality that the reader can't resist falling in love with Akron. Their enthusiasm is so contagious that I'd be happy to shout my love for this town from the rooftops with Karen and Joanna, polar vortex and all.
Celebrate the launch of the book and meet the authors at Musica on March 20th from 6-9pm. Details here.
