Author to talk about LeBron James
Author Scott Raab is coming to Mentor Public Library on Jan. 29 to discuss his new book, “You’re Welcome, Cleveland: How I Helped LeBron James Win a Championship and Save a City.”
Raab has written for GQ and Esquire magazines, but locally he is best known as author of “The Whore of Akron,” written shortly after LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers for the Miami Heat in 2010.
That book channeled Raab’s humor and sports rage, according to a news release. “You’re Welcome, Cleveland” is a redemption story for both Raab and James, the release stated.
Raab will talk about his book and complicated relationship with James when he visits at 6:30 p.m. at the Main Branch — 8215 Mentor Ave. in Mentor.
The talk is free and open to all. Raab’s books will be available for sale and signing.
The library does ask that people register before they attend.
They can sign up online at www.mentorpl.org or call the library at 440-255-8811, ext. 247.
