Written shortly after LeBron James left the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat, Raab took his humor and sports rage and channeled it into The Whore of Akron.
Raab, who has written for GQ and Esquire, published what many Cleveland sports fans were feeling in a book that balanced the profane and profound.
Now it is far less fashionable to insult James.
Raab too has had time to reconsider his stance on Akron’s favorite son. And he’s now ready… to accept your gratitude.
His new book, You’re Welcome, Cleveland: How I Helped LeBron James Win a Championship and Save a City, is a redemption tale for both Raab and James. The book is as funny and big-hearted as Raab himself.
Raab will talk about You’re Welcome, Cleveland and his conflicted relationship with James when he visits Mentor Public Library’s Main Branch at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 29.
Raab’s books will be available for sale and signing. His talk is free and open to all. However, we do ask that you register beforehand. You can sign up to attend online or call us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.
