“Over the last 35 years, this city has been the subject of a multitude of documentaries, international news features, academic studies, psychological profiles and political analyses . . . while all of these subplots command a major role in the story of Youngstown, they’re not the entire story. That’s where From Car Bombs to Cookie Tables: The Youngstown Anthology fills the gaps.”  —Business Journal“The city’s corrupt and bullet-riddled history and its post-industrial struggle have made Youngstown notorious. But what sometimes gets drowned out in this deluge of words are the stories of actual Youngstowners. In a new book titled Car Bombs to Cookie Tables: The Youngstown Anthology, residents share the moments that define the city in a series of essays, profiles, poems and photographs.”  —Vincy.com
