Brooklyn was always home, but now it is also hip

Rosemary Neri Villanella’s new book Duck And Cover: A Memoir of My 1960’s Brooklyn ($20.99, paperback, 9781498499736; $9.99, eBook, 9781498499743) portrays the personal but universal journey from childhood to adolescence of a girl living in a more innocent time, but with a complicated family life. She wants to be true to her values, yet wants “more” from life, even though she isn’t yet sure what that “more” is. The book will inspire young people to keep striving for their own personal version of “more” as they grow into young adulthood, without abandoning the things that make them unique as a person.
Rosemary Neri Villanella says, “Brooklyn was always home, but now it is also hip – my personal story of the familiar but almost-forgotten Brooklyn of 1960 will appeal to the estimated 25% of the US population who have (or wish they had) a connection with Brooklyn – a place whose name is recognized worldwide.”
Rosemary Neri Villanella was born and raised in Brooklyn and no one else has lived her unique life or could write about it the way she does. She has been writing since she attended Brooklyn’s Lafayette High School and is both very self-aware and knowledgeable about the moral and psychological development and needs of children and adolescents. Rosemary was a teacher for many years and is also an avid reader, a continual student and great believer in education, both self and formal.
