Comedian Mike Polk Jr. Will Autograph New Book at Kent State University Bookstore
Comedian Mike Polk Jr. will visit the Kent State University Bookstore located in the Kent Student Center in Kent, Ohio on Thursday, Nov. 29 from noon-2 p.m. to meet and greet fans and autograph copies of his new book, Damn Right I'm from Cleveland. The event is free and open to the public. Polk's book is a rustbelt satire lampooning Cleveland's quirks, including the city's boundless obsession with disappointing sports teams, Cleveland's nonstop quest to reinvent its civic image, and a grab-bag collection of odd local celebrities. Sections are devoted to such "timely" topics as: "Riding the RTA: A Fascinating Cultural Experience"; "A Cleveland Enemies Hall of Fame"; "A Comparison of Three Area Gentlemen’s Clubs"; and "A Remake of Cleveland’s Own Flag" to name a few.
