9781434367969: My Town Is A Cathedral: My Memories Of Sidney

My Town Is A Cathedral is a trip back through the looking-glass to a time of hula hoops, kick-the-can, and black and white Saturday morning TV shows. Noted author and broadcaster Chuck D'Imperio brilliantly essays a sentimental time capsule of growing up in a quintessential American smalltown. The center of D'Imperio's world was little Sidney, New York, population under 5,000, located along the Susquehanna River in Upstate New York. The author, born in 1949, illuminates the events of his life in the 1950s and 1960s by highlighting the times, places, people and memories of growing up in his parent's Mom and Pop grocery store on Main Street, of the swimming holes, the parades, the tragedies and triumphs, and the nostalgic places that color his youthful reminisces. Although D'Imperio writes specifically of his own hometown, Sidney, it is without a doubt that all readers of all geographic persuasions will associate their own upbringings with D'Imperio's vivid recollections.. The author is a longtime radio broadcaster and reknown storyteller, much in demand as a public speaker throughout his native Upstate New York. My Town Is A Cathedral is a precious nugget mined from the author's fertile memory banks, and is a welcome addition to any and all Baby Boomer's libraries.
