Graphic novelist Harvey Pekar is interviewed at the Heights Library on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights, OH in this series of videos. He talks about his memories of Coventry Road, where he lived during the 70s and 80s. Coventry Road has a storied history that was known beyond Cleveland city limits. From its beginnings as a Jewish neighborhood, on through its heyday in the 60s, Coventry remains a vibrant part of Cleveland, as does Mr. Pekar himself.
