Guedo's World Famous Taco Shop in Chandler. Guedo's Taco Shop is the recipient of the New Times award for "the Best Taco in Phoenix," and Guedo's ain't even in Phoenix. That's how good Guedo's Tacos are!
Ty Lusk, the Real Estate Rock star is Chandler's best loved entertainer, but don't get the idea that he's a ham-and-egger. Ty has opened for the Doobie Brothers, Diana Ross, and James Taylor. Even more impressive, he played my Eight-Fingered Criminal's Son Book and Haircut Book Signing at Papa Joe's Barbershop in 2012. I know, HUUUUUUGE! Ty has a the unique ability to interact with his crowd, changing up song lyrics to fit the moment and making frequent wisecracks. I gotta tell you Ty is almost as funny as me. Okay, if were using jokes that are actually funny as a frame of reference, Ty Lusk is probably funnier than I am.
All of this rigmarole involves the launch of my new book HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM APPLES?
“I FIGURED I WOULD TEACH FOR A YEAR, MAKE A LITTLE DOUGH, AND GET BACK TO THE COMEDY CAREER.”
The comedy routine got lost in the shuffle and William Snyder’s one year gig stretched into a 29-year career that included stints teaching at inner-city schools, Catholic schools, charter schools, accommodation schools, and boys reformatories, in addition to working as a satellite TV teacher and teaching at an upper-middle-class “normal” school that turned out to be anything but normal.
William Snyder’s stories are gritty, poignant, funny, and often bizarre, honestly recounting the triumphs and disasters associated with teaching poor kids, rich kids, incarcerated kids, immigrant kids, pregnant kids, autistic kids, and just about any other kinda kid you might imagine.
“Masterfully written. Hilarious. An eye opening look at education in America.”
-Richard Rios, San Joaquin Delta College, author of Songs from the Barrio
How Do You Like Them Apples? is a thoughtful examination of the human condition that drove me into outright fits of laughter.
-Eric Tozzi, award winning director of Ray Bradbury’s Kaleidoscope
