My Story Continues: From Neighborhood to Junior High School


By this time, you have seen the announcement for my third book, My Story Continues: From Neighborhood to Junior High School

I will be appearing in local bookstores … Barrington Books and Twice Told Tales, within the next few weeks. You can find that information at the bookstore sites (links above) or on Facebook.

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.

Dr. Ed Discusses His Old 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

Come to buy your holiday gifts!

    DR ED ,
    A child no more,now that we are all grown up and around and about,busy as beavers in our vocations. Do we ever
    think that the landscaper, the brick layer, the home builder,the bus driver and all others we meet and do business with as we travel our adult life were once children.
    When we were young, a lot of care and guidance came from our parents. We had friends and played (a little mischief
    of course). Teachers and scout masters were part of our growing.
    Our childhood never leaves.
    See you soon.
