Local author to visit bookstore today to share new book, ”Cleveland Christmas Memories”

Join author Gail Bellamy as she presents her book Cleveland Christmas Memories at the Case Western Reserve University bookstore Monday, Dec. 3, from noon to 1 p.m.

Filled with hundreds of vintage photos, the book features personal stories and remembrances of Christmas past from dozens of Northeast Ohioans, including former area Santas, entertainers and, of course, parents. From seeing Mr. Jingeling and stopping at Higbee’s downstairs Frosty Bar to ice skating on Public Square and seeing the lights at Nela Park, Bellamy’s book looks at some of Clevelanders’ fondest holiday memories.
