Love Song for Cleveland by Ray McNiece and Tim Lachina

Love Song for Cle cover (2)

Leading American poet and international performing artist Ray McNiece has crafted a soaring love song for his hometown.  Adding to the melody are Tim Lachina’s black and white photos that capture the beauty, struggle and grit of a city reinventing itself.  This book is for anyone who has ever experienced the conflicted love for a city that is a symbol of post-industrial decline and its proud and resilient citizens who came the shores of Lake Erie in search of a better life, working in the mills, machine shops, and factories and living under the acrid cloud of industrial production.
