BURBANK, Calif. - Nov. 22, 2017 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Growing Up in Burbank: Boomer Memories from The Akron to Zodys

Authors Wesley H. Clark & Michael B. McDaniel will be available to sign copies of book

Life in Burbank during the '60s and '70s was an unparalleled experience. From biking Lucky Busters trail to enjoying movies at the Cornell Theater and shopping at The Akron, Burbankers' choices of entertainment seemed endless. Relive fond memories of dining out at Genio's, the Dip or Santoro's. Recall visits to the Golden Mall before heading home to watch Dark Shadows on television. While some of the local icons may have changed, the spirit has remained the sameā€”and it's waiting to be rediscovered. Authors Wes Clark and Mike McDaniel guide you through their hometown and remember the fads, the hijinks and the places that made Burbank the place it is today.
