OXFORD – Chuck D’Imperio, noted local author, will be speaking at the Oxford Memorial Library at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The Oxford Historical Society is sponsoring this special guest performance in the Library’s new Community Room. The topic of D’Imperio’s presentation will be his latest book, “My Town Is A Cathedral: My Memories of Sidney,” a nostalgic look capturing the feel of mid-twentieth century small town life.
D’Imperio’s latest publication, “My Town Is A Cathedral,” is a trip back through the looking-glass to a time of hula hoops, kick-the-can, and black and white Saturday morning TV shows. Noted author and broadcaster Chuck D’Imperio brilliantly essays a sentimental time capsule of growing up in a quintessential American small town. Although D’Imperio writes specifically of his own hometown, Sidney, it is without a doubt that all readers of all geographic persuasions will associate their own upbringings with D’Imperio’s vivid recollections. My Town Is A Cathedral is a precious nugget mined from the author’s fertile memory banks.
