Author Visit: Mark Zimmerman

June 7, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Join Mark Zimmerman as he talks about his new novel, “Eli – The Phenom’s Story,” in the Stockwell Room at the library. His book covers the history of Eli Weaver a young man from Holmes County who became a player for the Cleveland Indians in 1946.


A native of the Cleveland area, Mark Zimmerman graduated from West Geauga High School in Chesterland. At Bowling Green State University, he majored in Broadcasting, and minored in American Literature.

He entered the working world at WUAB-TV in Cleveland, working behind the scenes for 6 years. His 12-year advertising career followed. Starting as a copywriter, he became a producer, and a creative director – winning local, regional, national and international recognition.

In 1993, concurrent with his advertising career, he re-entered the radio world, working mainly as the morning drive host at WCRF – 103.3fm in Cleveland. Currently, Mark is the morning drive host for Heartfelt Radio at 91.9fm, with studios in Barberton.

Mark and his wife Wendy have been married for over 35 years, have three grown daughters, two great sons-in-law, and two grandchildren.

A lifetime Cleveland baseball fan, Mark wants – with the rest of us – “just one before I die.”

Eli – The Phenom’s Story is Mark’s first novel.
