Book Launch Party with Mike McCrobie, author of We're from Oswego...and we couldn't be prouder!
Recollections of Growing Up and Growing Old in the Port City of Central New York
Booksigning at 1:00pm
Whether readers are from Oswego or Anytown America of the 1960s and 70s, McCrobie's writings take them from their wonder years through their glory days and beyond. With sixty of his newspaper columns, he nostalgically recalls all things Americana: letterman's jackets, high school sororities, cops walking a downtown beat, the local newsstand, now-closed factories, high school gym class, and many more enjoyable reads.
McCrobie was born, raised and educated in Oswego, NY. Prior to his retirement in 2012, he taught high school English for 33 years. He was honored as a Teacher of Excellence in 1989 by the New York State English Council.
