This week’s featured book is, “Grandpa Stories” by James McCann: www.smashwords.com/books/view/256072.
The author is someone I have been fortunate enough to personally work with and has provided us with a great story:
In his own words:
“Grandpa Stories is a collection of stories, my stories. I take today’s readers back to a time that seems so long ago now. The fact is that it really hasn’t been that long ago. It only seems so because of how much change has occurred since I started creating and collecting my stories. It’s not the ticking of clock that makes our stories interesting, it’s the changing of background or context that makes solutions like “pop-tops” and “jukeboxes” fascinating to us now. It was also a time where much of our learning didn’t have anything to do with school. We were taught by watching and experiencing life in ways that are no longer available to our children.
When it is all said and done, we are all the creators and collectors of our stories. As I look towards the end of my life, I rejoice in the honor of loving the people that I have loved, serving the country that made me free, creating the children and all the other wonderful forms of art that I have created.
I will celebrate living and loving it all right up to the moment that I no longer can. No matter what happens next, I am and have always been a very, very lucky man.”
Read it. You’ll enjoy it. Have a great weekend! (Evin – http://www.mrgurupublishing.com)
