The Friends of the Library Association will host the Book and Coffee Series March 15 at the Craigmiles-Johnston House History Branch Library at 10 a.m. Alexander Delk will review his book, “Memories of Yesteryear,” about life of rural America during the 1920s and ’30s.

This book is a compilation of articles written for the Cleveland Daily Banner about Delk’s reminisces on how life was in rural America during the period between the two great wars, World War I and World War II. The series deals with many aspects of life throughout much of the country during that time.
