Daughter’s book remembers Norma Herr

Mira Bartok has written a book, The Memory Palace, about her mother, Norma Herr, for whom the Norma Herr Women’s Center was named. Norma, who suffered from schizophrenia lived in a women’s shelter on Payne Avenue for many years. The book has been dedicated to the women at the shelter.

“Mira will sign books at 7 p.m. Friday at the Pilgrim United Church of Christ, 2592 W. 14th St. in Cleveland. The event is sponsored by Visible Voice Books. The “Women Hold Up Half the Sky” fundraiser for the shelter will be at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 25 at Gordon Square Arcade, 6516 Detroit Ave., Cleveland.”
