|Author Fred Rossi reads from "Jersey Stories" last weekend|
at Halo Roasters in Springfield.
Last weekend I stumbled into a book signing.
I had stopped for a cup of coffee before heading home after taking church photos in the Springfield area (more about that later).
It was fate.
Fred T. Rossi, a writer and journalist since the 1980s (in other words, the better version of my PR self), was standing in the corner, telling stories about New Jersey.
Fred is the author of "Jersey Stories," published last year and subtitled: "Stories you may not have heard about people and events in New Jersey history."
Here are just a few of the questions answered in his book:
- What did Mundy Peterson from Perth Amboy do that made history 150 years ago?
- What was it like the night that Martians invaded New Jersey?
- What was it like having Albert Einstein as a neighbor?
