Book Release

10/13/16 - posted by Frank Dunnigan - dunnigan<at>

With many thanks to David & Woody for sharing some great photos from the WNP Archives, I am happy to report that my new book, GROWING UP IN SAN FRANCISCO: Boomer Memories from Playland to Candlestick Park, is now being released by The History Press. The publisher put together a YouTube video that shares some highlights (disclaimer: while the book contains nearly 100 images, the video contains dozens more that exceeded the book’s photo-count limit). A few of the stories previously appeared as reader favorites in WNP’s monthly STREETWISE column, but about 80% of the content is brand-new material. Hope that readers will join us as the nice folks at BookShop West Portal (80 West Portal Avenue, San Francisco) host an in-store kickoff event next Thursday, October 20th at 7pm.
