Watch for this new picture book, written by poet and children's book author Rich Michelson
about his friend and colleague Leonard Nimoy. It will be released on
Sept. 8, the 50th anniversary of the first ever episode of the original
NBC Star Trek series. I'll be reviewing the book soon here, on Mad for Mod.
"Fascinating tells the story of how this child of Jewish immigrants,
who often felt like an alien in his Boston West End neighborhood,
discovered a love for acting and photography. He worked hard, followed
his dreams and reached for the stars. The book begins with Lenny’s
secret discovery, as an eight year old child, of the Hebraic blessing
which would become known throughout our galaxy as the Vulcan hand
gesture of greeting and peace."
