Dennis McCarthy Presentation, Book Purchase and Signing
10:30 am to 11:15 am
Dennis McCarthy, beloved Daily News columnist, has spent his career talking to and writing about “the uncommon common man or woman.” Dennis will entertain with fun and inspirational stories from interesting seniors he’s met that defy the word “aging.” He’ll also add some personal observations including saying goodbye to his “60’s” and welcoming his “70’s”. Dennis’ latest book “Here’s to the Winners” provides favorite stories from 30 years of talking to war vets, school teachers, cops, firefighters, nurses, social workers, barbers, bartenders and anybody else in town who could point him in the direction of a good human interest story. After his session, Dennis will have “Here’s to the Winners” available for purchase and signature.
