Larry James Gianakos, Bringing Families Together
Gianakos educated the young and the young at heart about legendary performers of decades past.
By: Marchae Grair, featured columnist
The aroma from the nearby coffee shop drifted into the room as patient eyes awaited the guest of honor. Shoppers busily shuffling from book to book paused to join the crowd. Granddaughters chuckled as their grandparents hugged them closely. A father and daughter had a chat on the sofa, and sisters shared a memory nearby.
The intimacy of the moment almost made fans feel like they were at a family reunion instead of a book signing.
Such was the scene for Larry James Gianakos’s appearance in Columbus, Ohio at Barnes & Noble last Saturday. Gianakos discussed his new book, “Resurrection of an Era,” to a crowd of all ages. Although the book discusses “Westinghouse Presents Studio One,” a television show which ran in the 1940’s and 1950’s, this did not stop teenagers, and even children, from enjoying Gianakos’ presentation.
Gianakos educated the young and young at heart about legendary performers of decades past. The families who attended Gianakos’ signing were the perfect accessory to his mention of old-time family values.
*** Nationally acclaimed writer and historian Larry James Gianakos, is considered the "preeminent historian of American television broadcasting"
