Meet Mark Price, award-winning journalist and author of Lost Akron, as we continue our exciting Meet the Author Series.  From a prehistoric locale like the Big Falls of the Cuyahoga River to the cavernous 1970s majesty of the Coliseum, explore the places that have melted away in Akron’s changing landscape. Remember M. O’Neil Company? Akron Times-Press? The North Hill Viaduct? WAKR-TV? Norka Soda? Rolling Acres Mall? These are icons that all defined the city and its people.
