One of the Three Guys From Albany, Charles Rossiter, has a brand new book of poetry from FootHills Publishing. Here is the info from the press release:
FootHills Publishing is pleased to announce the release of The Night We Danced With the Raelettes Occurrences In and Around College Park Maryland in the 1960s For the Most Part To the Best of My Recollection, a collection of poems by Charles Rossiter.
It’s all here: leaving home for the first time, hanging out with guys from the dorm; road trips; summer jobs as diverse and improbable as delivering yeast for Budweiser, supervising a pick-your-own strawberry patch, and sweating it out in the coal fields of Bethlehem Steel. There are also musings about life, literature, friendship, and the bliss and pain that comes with searching for, finding, and losing love.
“Charlie Rossiter’s book takes us a high-speed journey into memory and the past. It makes the 60’s come alive again. More importantly, it makes us laugh and cry. Tender, funny, evocative, this book is one not to be missed.”
– Maria Mazziotti Gillan, Founder & Executive Director, Poetry Center, Passaic Co. CC, Paterson, NJ and editor, Paterson Literary Review.
