Where I grew up is so much a part of me, and so much a part of my story. To return here and have the opportunity to connect with other writers and readers is really special.
Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
Eric Mondschein, author of the personal and engaging memoir “Life at 12 College Road,” will join several other area authors at the Local Author Showcase, to be held October 19 in the Saratoga Springs Barnes & Noble. Mondschein will be featured in the event’s 4 to 6 p.m. slot.
“Life at 12 College Road” differs significantly from most traditional memoirs in both content and form. Rather than relate the most newsworthy moments of his life in a linear, chronological narrative, Mondschein instead focuses on more intimate memories from his childhood life in rural New York in a series of 33 colorful vignettes.
Mondschein’s inclusion in the Local Author Showcase, which is tailored to authors who live or write in the upstate New York region, represents a unique personal milestone for the author. After growing up in the area, he spent many years abroad, in Israel, before returning in 2006. Now, he is being recognized for his work in the same area that is so deeply intertwined with it.
“It’s a thrill,” said Mondschein. “Where I grew up is so much a part of me, and so much a part of my story. To return here and have the opportunity to connect with other writers and readers is really special.”
The Local Author Showcase is a joint effort of the Saratoga Springs Barnes & Noble and the Adirondack Center for Writing (ACW). Barnes & Noble will contribute a portion of the entire day's sales to the ACW.
Mondschein is also scheduled to appear at a well-attended book fair hosted by the Glens Falls Chronicle on November 2, in Glens Falls, New York.
