Author Franz Douskey visits the Wallingford Public Library Tuesday, December 1 at 6:30 p.m. to present his book Sinatra and Me: The Very Good Years. The book is based on Douskey’s interviews with Tony Consiglio, who was Frank Sinatra’s friend and confidante for over 60 years. It details Sinatra’s rise to fame, and the women, shady characters, foibles, and generosity for which Sinatra was known.
“For Sinatra fans and those who love a dishy story, this is a grand read,” Publishers Weekly, January 7, 2013. Books will be available for purchase and signing the night of the event.
Mr. Douskey’s work has appeared in over 200 publications and he has lectured throughout the United States including the bookstore R J Julia, the Donnell Library, and the Cronkite Graduate Center at Harvard University. His recent book of poetry West of Midnight was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 2012.
