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.
