Comedian/author will visit KSU Bookstore

Published:

Comedian Mike Polk Jr., author of "Damn Right I'm from Cleveland," will visit the Kent State University Bookstore in the Kent Student Center from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday to greet fans and autograph copies of his book. The event is free and open to the public.

Polk's book is a rustbelt satire lampooning Cleveland's quirks, including the city's boundless obsession with disappointing sports teams, its nonstop quest to reinvent its civic image, and a grab-bag collection of odd local celebrities.

Mike Polk Jr. is a Cleveland-based writer and comedian. He graduated from KSU in 2002 with a degree in communications and wrote for the Daily Kent Stater.

For more information about the event, call 330-672-1588. For more information about Polk's book, visit www.MikePolkJr.com.
