The fine art photography book aims to revive memories and preserve the rich history of baby boomer life in Massapequa and Massapequa Park, New York on the south shore of Long Island. More info at http://www.facebook.com/MassapequaBook.

Two photographers who met in their 1967 kindergarten class and who remained schoolmates through their high school graduation in 1979, reunited 30 years later to work on Massapequa: A Pictorial History Though The Eyes of Baby Boomers. Co-authors Rich Klein and Lisa Glass-Fiebert had a simple vision for the book: to dramatically capture through their camera lenses the places around Massapequa and Massapequa Park that baby boomers would most identify with: where they went to school, where they ate and shopped, where they prayed and where they played. Aside from the photos shot by Glass-Fiebert and Klein, the book includes some nostalgic photos culled from other alum. There is a section of essays from noted Pequa alumni, including journalists Steven Greenhouse of The New York Times and Carol Sottili of The Washington Post; authors Betsy Israel and Tom Terwilliger, who was Mr. America; musician Wade Preston, the lead in the Broadway show “Movin’ Out”, and world renowned wrestling coach, Al Bevilacqua, who taught Seinfeld how to drive and who advised Tom Cruise for his wrestling scenes in Born on The Fourth of July, the movie about Massapequa hero Ron Kovic.

About the author

Coauthors Lisa Glass Fiebert and Rich Klein met in a Massapequa, Long Island kindergarten classroom in 1966. Nearly 50 years later, they collaborated on their first photography book to create a piece of history for their hometown through the eyes of their fellow baby boomers. The book has led both authors to have their work exhibited throughout the Town of Oyster Bay on Long Island during 2015 and 2016. A permanent installation of their Massapequa photos is on display at GoHealth/Northwell Urgent Care in Massapequa, the first exhibit of its kind in the GoHealth network.
