Time for new Toner

When retired Cleveland judge John Toner decided, on a whim, to visit Sri Lanka a decade ago to visit his youngest son he discovered that this son Jim was as much a stranger to him as was the culture of war-torn Sri Lanka.

Now, Jim Toner has written "Serendib," a book that explores not only his time spent in Sri Lanka, but his time spent with his father. Here is the touching story of a father and son finding each other and of two cultures intersecting.

Hear Toner read from "Serendib," Wed., July 25, at 7 p.m. at Schwartz Bookshop. Admission is free. Call (414) 332-1181 for more information.
