Chandler man pens knee-slapper

William Snyder, a Chandler resident for more than 22 years, will sign his new book "The Eight-Fingered Criminal's Son," from 3 to 4 p.m. Sat., May 19, at Chandler Auto and Tire, 440 N. Arizona Ave., Chandler.

The book is a collection of personal antecdotes that capture the essence of growing up in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. According to reviews, it includes the gritty reality of living in a working-class neighborhood to the heartfelt experience of family life, with tales that are "whimsical, humerous and sometimes unbelievable, but always entertaining."

Books will be available for purchase and visitors will enjoy hot dogs discounted oil changes and entertainment from a Tom Jones impersonator. the book will be available for Chandler Auto and Tire until all copies are sold.

For more information about the book, visit .

The story above appeared in the May 5 issue of the Chandler San Tan News. This constitutes my first example of media coverage. There was a miscomunication over the date. The signing was scheduled for May 12. Since the paper has a circulation of some 100,000 people. I will be signing books at Chandler Auto and Tire May 12 and May 19. If you happen to be in the area, come on by.

I wish I could be there. Maybe next time around, when I take a trip out West. Good luck!
