Readers who always want to know what’s in someone else’s book bag or on someone else’s e-reader savor the Mercantile Library’s By The Book series for its long running revelation of reading tastes of Cincinnati Notables. City of Cincinnati Parks Director Willie Carden took that series by storm yesterday, merging high energy oratory and coolly clear PowerPoint in one of the best attended and best liked takes on the Library’s formula, presenting a list of six books deftly woven into an eye popping display of the Park System’s recent successes.
The Library is once again indebted to RiverPoint Capital Management for sponsorship of Mr. Carden’s appearance and, as ever, to the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Jr. Foundation/USBank for Season Presenting Sponsorship.
And, we have to say it. We can’t help ourselves. You should have been here.
