Book Signing Slated for Coffee Table Publication: Remembering Newark’s Greeks
Press Release October 23, 2006
For information, please contact:
Heidi Cramer – (973) 733-7837

Little is left of many of the immigrant neighborhoods that helped shape the City of Newark in the dawning stages of the 20th century. Yet one of these communities is very much alive in a new book Remembering Newark’s Greeks: An American Odyssey, whose author Angelique Lampros of West Orange captures the essence of those immigrants who came to New Jersey’s largest city, worked in menial jobs and became small business owners—all contributing to the vitality and character of mid-century Newark.

The stunning coffee table publication evokes the Greek experience in Newark though the voices of immigrants and their children, along with cherished photographs, documents and memorabilia. Lampros, a Newark native, will sign her tribute to Newark’s Greeks on Thursday, November 30, 2006, 6:00 p.m. at Snuffy’s Pantagis Renaissance, 250 Park Avenue (off Route 22), Scotch Plains. Proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit The Newark Public Library’s Hellenic Heritage Fund.

The event is open to the public. For more information and to make reservations, please call: 973-424-1832.
