I already have my book....and wow....is it entertaining. If you liked the movie "Stand By Me" you will surely like reading this book. It is very entertaining and does throw you back into those wonderful, carefree, simple adolescent days of long ago. I am going to read it again!!!

BEECH STREET...The Summer of 59' is my book! Yes...It is about one summer in 59' in East Palo Alto when it was country and farmland....jersey cows, Clydesdale horses, Cooley Market, Ravenswood Recreation Center, Brentwood Elementary, Bell Street, University Ave, Clarke Street, American Band Stand, Elvis Presley, marble collections and more....those were some great times. Secret oaths in the clubhouse, smoking stogies in the old oak tree, chewing Double Bubble til your jar was sore, tar-stained feet and riding the city bus downtown to the picture show are just a mere token of the memories tucked away in this book. I just want everyone in the area to know there is a great little book with a lot of fond memories about your community from way back when...hope some of you will take the time to search it out... you can visit me on-line at www,paulacornell.com
