When I Was Eight

by John Jaech

This is another of those family publications that you'll never get to read unless you come over to my house and pull it off my shelf. (And maybe not even then, if my sister-in-law lays claim to it.) What Uncle John has done, in his spare time, is to pull news headlines from 1937 and intersperse them with his own comments and recollections. It yields an interesting peak into community and family history. It almost makes me want to peruse back issues of The Chicago Tribune from the mid-seventies and start work on my own book.
