The annual series of Newark Public Library Friends Luncheons resume on October 10.

Local history writer John Zornow kicks off the 2014-2015 Friends of the Newark Public Library Book Review luncheons on October 10 with the power point presentation of "The Great Sherman Opera House Fire of 1925".

The Sherman Opera House existed in Newark from 1899 to 1925, having been built to replace the former Sherman Opera House that was destroyed by fire in 1898.

Stephen F. Sherman, who left a major impact on Newark during his lifetime, had opera house built on East Union St. as a memorial to his parents.

John Zornow is a history writer, former reporter for the Courier Gazette, and currently publishes a weekly history column in the Times of Wayne County. His articles have appeared in Reminisce Magazine, Old Cars Weekly, and Classic Car Magazine.

Reservations are a must to attend the Friday, October 10 luncheon that is Newark Library's community room starting at noon. Lunch is $5.00 and includes home made apple pie. Call the library to reserve a seat no later than Wednesday, October 8.
