Mark Price still plumbing Akron history
BJ editior Mark Price’s book, "Lost Akron," from Arcadia Publishing, has been out since July but I missed it.
Former BJ sports editor & other roles Ken Krause tipped me off about the book and Dorothy Markulis’ laudatory August article in the Tallmadge Express about it.
You can read Dorothy’s book review that kickstarts her Akron memories by clicking on http://www.tallmadgeexpress.com/opinion/2015/08/09/on-the-mark-reporter-lost-in-memories-of-lost-akron
If you want to buy Mark’s “Lost Akron,” it’s available on Amazon.com for $14 in paperback, $11.29 new and used and $9.99 on Kindle (you know, the thing you hold in your hands and scroll through the pages while you’re at a concert or on a plane).
You still can buy Mark’s “The Rest Is History: True Tales From Akron’s Vibrant Past” for $15.16 paperback or $14.36 new and used. It was published in 2012 by the University of Akron (or is it the University of Z?) Ringtaw Books.
When Mark isn’t a BJ copy editor, he’s writing “This Place, This Time,” some mighty fine back to the past articles about the Akron area and its landmarks and landmark events.
Mark is married to Susan Gapinski Price. They met around the BJ copy desk. And lived their love story when they married in 2010.
