The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City will present a free public program at the Ohio Theatre. A book signing will follow his talk.

      In the late 1800s Cleveland was known as “The Forest City” because of the wealth of trees that characterized the city. Not anymore. “Pittsburgh 40 – Cleveland 19” sounds like another loss to the Steelers, but it’s the comparison of percent tree canopy in each city.
