Robert Weintraub has just published a book of short stories about baseball, “Painting the Corners: A Collection of Off-Center Baseball Stories.” For more information, visit Bob Weintraub Iguana Books Website. Carolyn Altschul Feigenbaum published a children’s book, “A Bench in London: The Story of an American Soldier.” It tells of an American soldier who served in the U.S. Army in London during World War II (the soldier was her uncle). The story also takes place in Chicago and New York, and stresses the hardships of war and the value of parks in urban environments. John Howard’s last book, “Faces in the Mirror: Oscar Micheaux and Spike Lee,” was published a couple of years ago. He’s now involved in making a documentary about the DREAM Act, proposed federal legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for young adults brought into this country in infancy by undocumented parents. He writes, “In other words, there’s a lot of life left in the Class of ’55.”
