PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
One of the best things about the College Club is the number of members who are so willing to pitch in and help.  “Helping” includes bringing guests to our meetings.  Janet Reiche, Lorraine Haucke, Mary Tamm, Marilyn Shteir, and Beverly Kestenis all shared their afternoon with guests.  It was wonderful to see those new faces.

I also want to mention the members who helped with the tea and clean up, and they all volunteered…Diana Cedeno, Mary Reiling, Bonnie Larson, Gay Culin, Alyce Conlon, Janet Young, and Dora Bowers.

If I have left someone out, please let me know.  And can someone tell me how Mary Lincoln manages to look younger every year!

GENERAL MEETING

“POSTCARDS FROM A BOOK PUBLISHING CAREER”
Richard Eiger, a retired book publisher, is a graduate of Pratt Institute, where he majored in advertising design.  He began his career working for Western Publishing and Golden Books, eventually becoming president of Macmillan Educational Company and publisher of the World Almanac.

Publishing books through periods of great change has always been a great challenge successfully met by American publishers. His career in publishing has been a discovery of how book people worked together to publish against all odds and thrive.

In these 20thcentury snapshots you will meet some of the many wonderful people he has met along the way, formally and informally, at work and at play.  These people were committed to the principle of their publishing purpose.  They made it happen!  And people like them still do today.

In his 40 years of publishing paperbacks, children’s books, cookbooks, encyclopedias and dictionaries, his office never strayed beyond the confines of Midtown Manhattan, but the stories of people, projects, and events to be mentioned were played out across America and Western Europe.

Mr. Eiger is Trustee Emeritus of Pratt Institute and is Trustee of The Delaware College of Art and Design.  He is a Francophile, joins book clubs, and is a working tour guide for the Princeton Historical Society.  Mr. Eiger’s publishing memoir, entitled Booked for Life, has been submitted to his literary agent.
