Costco to Host Book Signings for Legendary Locals of Red Bank Author

Eileen Moon will be available to sign copies of pictorial history

PRLog - March 17, 2014 - RED BANK, N.J. -- Vintage images coupled with facts and anecdotes culled by local author Eileen Moon reveal the fascinating history of legendary locals in Red Bank. A center of artistic activity and cultural diversity, Red Bank has always provided its inhabitants the landscape and resources to live well and dream big.

“I hope the book helps readers appreciate this town and their place in it in a fresh way,” said author Eileen Moon. The book covers both town greats and unsung heroes like James Avati, “the Rembrandt of Paperbacks” whose illustrations have graced thousands of book covers, including J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye and Richard Wright’s Black Boy; Florence Forgotson Adams, the first woman admitted to the Monmouth County Bar association who paved the way for all the women who followed her into the legal profession in Red Bank; and Sigmund Eisner, a Jewish immigrant who grew a modest clothing business into a major manufacturing empire.

Moon is excited to share the new book with locals. “My hope is that the book demonstrates how connected we are from generation to generation…and reminds us all how much we have to learn from each other,” she said.
