BOOK THREE IS HERE
By this time, you have seen the announcement for my third book, My Story Continues: From Neighborhood to Junior High School
This third book profiles my old neighborhood and the local schools I attended.
A few years ago, I posted a video (Link below) profiling my first book, Growing up Italian: Grandfather’s Fig Tree and Other Stories, on You Tube about that neighborhood.
Here is an excerpt about that neighborhood from my third book
I define myself with stories that relive the fun of my early years in a small, easily-managed world. It was like a club, one I could enter and leave as I wished. When I entered that club, I was comfortable. When I left, I wanted to re-enter.
Save for the memories, there is little left of the neighborhood and the weave of families that helped to shape my life. These essays are a sentimental glance to a time that made me what I was to become.
What I write of stores, streets, schools, houses, sidewalks, streetcars, telephone poles, gardens, neighbors and friends is in a small world on a few city blocks.
C’mon, C’mon. Join me at the signings
