Meet the Author: Eileen Obser, Author of Only You

Connetquot Library's longtime memoir instructor Eileen Obser has just released her book Only You. Set in the late 1950s and early 1960s, it relates her personal experience growing up in Queens, and her doomed-to-fail marriage at eighteen to a nineteen-year-old boy from their candy store crowd. Eileen shows how two naive, uninformed teenagers were influenced by social and religious pressures, to disastrous consequences. Musical atmosphere will be provided by Joseph Bonelli, who will play songs of the era, which are also the chapter titles of the book.
