Buccino takes Notables to Nutley Expo March 26

Meet author Anthony Buccino and chat about Nutley Notables: The men and women who made a memorable impact on our home town, Nutley, New Jersey at the fifth annual Nutley Expo of products and services of local business.  


Even the most ardent Nutley historian will find new surprises in this collection.

Our Nutley Notables include Old West sharpshooter Annie Oakley who has a street here named in her honor; home-diva Martha Stewart who grew up on Elm Place and often writes of growing up in Nutley but has no street named for her; and others who may have to wait a while for street naming honors.


Featured individuals run the gamut from politicians to high school coaches and athletes; from notorious personalities to beloved entertainers to the fellow in the local shop to the artists and writers who toiled long ago and today. Their images and stories document the unique contributions they've made that shaped Nutley today. So, do find us at the Expo. 

Bring your copy of Nutley Notables for an autograph or buy one on site.


4 P.M. TO 8 P.M. March 26, 2015 
Buccino will sign and sell books at the expo 

Nutley Expo 
Nutley Parks and Recreation Building,
44 Park Avenue, Nutley, N.J.


Besides being a fun evening for the entire family, all proceeds from registration support the Nutley Parks and Recreation Center, as well as the Relay for Life.

For goodness' sake, buy a book or a CD

I read recently that record album sales are down 11 percent from the year before. That's where the domino effect starts to crimp creativity. Not only are the big stars hurting on sales, but the little guy will have a harder time of becoming a pop star icon, let alone making a living at making music.

The same goes for people who write. Whether they are writing short stories, novels, poetry, nonfiction, after a while if there is no audience, the disincentive to go on can be overwhelming.

The similarities between free music downloads and reading everything for free online may point to the same target, that disincentive to create.

If a copyright on a work has no  meaning and the artist cannot earn rewards for work, we all might as well become actuaries somewhere.

I'd write more, but only if you buy one or more of my 18 books.
Just a few of my book titles.
