      Dead Giveaway: Getting to know the real Charles Ramsey, the hero who rescued Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight
      When the world first met Charles Ramsey, he was being interview about helping to rescue Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight, the Cleveland women who were kidnapped and held captive by Ariel Castro for 10 years. Tonight’s storyteller is Randy Nyerges who co-authored the book Dead Giveaway with Charles Ramsey. The book gives an account of Charles’s life before, during, and after the dramatic rescue of three women. The book carries the lengthy subtitle The Rescue, Hamburgers, White Folks, and Instant Celebrity … What You Saw on TV Doesn’t Even Begin to Tell the Story. Says Randy, “For almost a year, Chuck was my second wife. And he’s been constantly apologizing to my wife for borrowing and abusing her husband till all hours of the night for a long period. We wanted to make sure this book is genuinely Chuck’s. It’s his thoughts. It’s his words. It’s his ideas. It was important to be real. And sometimes reality involves things that are unpleasant. It involves things that are not nice. It involves stories that are unpleasant.”

      The goal of the Cleveland Stories Dinner Party is to bring to life some of the fun, interesting stories about Cleveland’s past – from sports, to rock ‘n roll, to Millionaire’s Row, — the series will focus on tidbits from Cleveland’s past that will really thrill the audience. The Music Box is presenting this series in partnership with the Western Reserve Historical Society’s new Cleveland History Center. We think the Cleveland History Center is one of the most important museums in Cleveland. An unknown gem that Clevelanders should know more about, and support. It is the only museum in Cleveland dedicated to preserving and documenting the history of Cleveland. The Cleveland History Center includes two mansions, the Crawford Auto Aviation Museum, Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, Research Library, Kidzibits Hands-On Gallery, rotating exhibitions, and the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel.
