Former Akron deputy mayor Dave Lieberth, who just completed a book on the city's history, will have a second book signing event.
Lieberth will sign his book, called Inventive. Industrious. Inspired, from 7 to 9 a.m. Monday at Akron Family Restaurant, 250 W. Market St. He previously announced an event from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Zebra-Martell Studio, 43 Furnace St.
Lieberth, who retired from the city last fall, describes the 190-page book as "the story of how we got where we are today." He said the city and local businesses will use the book as an economic development tool to tell Akron’s story. Any proceeds will go to the Summit County Historical Society.
The book is $54 or $45 for historical society members. It will be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Monday at Perkins Stone Mansion, 550 Copley Road. It also can be purchased for $59.99 on amazon.com.
