Venice, FL Author Publishes Memoir

By: PR Leap
( Billy: Amusing Memoirs from a Unique and Cherished Period in America, a new book by William J. Keenan, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Billy: Amusing Memoirs from a Unique and Cherished Period in America is the historical account of one kid's sometimes comical experiences growing up in a different time, and demonstrates just how much can change over the years. From the young to the old, there is a great value in listening to stories from a bygone era and taking a moment to appreciate a snippet in time. Others born during that quintessential time in American history, the period of that great BOOM of babies born, will reminisce and perhaps even find their own voice to share with others.
