Local author Michael Bisceglia, Saturday September 26th

On Saturday, September 26th at 1 PM, the Lane Memorial Library will host an author talk and book signing with local newspaperman Michael Bisceglia Jr. His book Room 600 follows the life of a 'special needs' teacher in a school classroom for middle-school students with disabilities ranging from blindness to severe retardation. Based on years of personal experience, Mike has written a warm and and wonderful novel about the trials and triumphs within a world rarely seen by the public.

Though special education is often neglected, Mike Bisceglia has written a sensitive story that deals with sensitive issues and did it with dignity, diplomacy and a healthy dose of humor. - Richard Lee, Library Director, Waukegan Public Library System.
