Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Author, and retired school teacher Irv Korman will discuss his latest book, Antuan was Hear: 30 Years of Kids’ Quotes. This collection of student quotes from his 30 years as a teacher in the Akron Public School System is a light-hearted and hilarious look at some of his most memorable teaching moments. Books will be available for purchase at the event.

Irv is also a theatre critic, actor, clown, and magician. He has been performing in plays for 60 years - ever since he was given the role of the king in "Breakfast for the King" in first grade. His role as a writer and theater critic has led to the publication of two books "I Was Jerry Lewis' Bodyguard for 10 Minutes... and Other Celebrity Encounters" and "I Was Jackie Mason's Chauffeur for 5 Minutes... and More Celebrity Encounters."
Irv has received four Communicator Awards for his talents as a writer and theater critic, and one Chanticleer Award for acting. When he isn’t working on his books or strutting the stages of local community theaters, Irv enjoys keeping up his 1978 red Volkswagen Super Beetle convertible, a good cigar, and spending time with close friends.
