Learned Owl to host Bob Dyer


The Learned Owl Book Shop is delighted to welcome Bob Dyer, columnist with the Akron Beacon Journal, on Dec. 12 at 7 p.m.

He will be selling and signing his new book, "Blimp Pilot Terrorizes Akron and Other Hot Air." In this book, it is Akron with attitude: a giant cockroach, ticket-happy traffic cops, prima donna sports stars and more. Dyer's biting commentary has earned him followers and foes alike, along with a boatload of awards. In this collection of his best writing, Dyer nearly crashes the Goodyear Blimp, drag races in a '64 Plymouth Barracuda, panhandles on a downtown street corner and generally waves a red flag at political correctness.

Dyer has been with the Akron Beacon Journal since 1984.
