Mount Vernon, NY (Vocus) September 22, 2010
In anticipation of the prestigious Frankfurt International Book Fair, leading self-publisher Xlibris announced today the availability of Class of '69, a searing autobiographical novel authored by Tedd Smith.
Class of ’69 takes the reader beyond today’s headlines of clerical sexual abuse to experience firsthand the insidious way that these predators work. It is 1966 and Kevin McAndrews, a 14 year-old American student, finds himself away from home for the first time at a Swiss boarding school. There, he meets Brother Charles, a Catholic religious who is considered by everyone to be the school’s coolest teacher, especially by Kevin and his friends Geoff, Marc and Luis. They affectionately refer to him as B.C. behind his back. But B.C. has his own secrets and ends up betraying their trust and violating their innocence, with deadly consequences.
Class of '69 will be featured at the Frankfurt International Book Fair, which will be held in Germany from October 6 to 10, 2010. Readers who wish to order a copy of this book are encouraged to visit Xlibris.com, call toll free at (888) 795-4274, or send email to orders(at)xlibris(dot)com today.
