The Rowfant Club is looking forward to an exciting season in 2015-2016 in terms of speakers for our Wednesday dinner gatherings as well as our Friday Lunch programs.
Speakers on Wednesday evenings are experts from all over the world in various book-related fields; authors, critics, collectors , librarians and others who will discuss related museum issues as well as printing and papermaking who will enrich our evenings with their presentations.
Our Wednesday programs have been bringing speakers from outside Rowfant while Friday Lunch speakers are members of the club. Fridays talks cover a wide range of interests and expertise of our members.
While our speaker lists are complete and we are ready to begin another season as The Rowfant Club approaches its 125th anniversary year in 2017. During the summer we have no Friday or Wednesday programs, but that does not mean we were not busy. A great deal of maintenance work occupied many of us thisd last summer as we continued to care for our very special club house which was built in 1848 and is among the oldest structures in Cuyahoga County. And of course there’s always a lot of care and cataloging of our library and other collections.
