NEW YORK (AP) — Al Pacino, Carl Reiner and Regis Philbin are among dozens of Bronx natives who will share childhood memories for an upcoming book.
Henry Holt and Company announced Monday that it had acquired "Just Kids From the Bronx," scheduled for release in February 2015. "Just Kids" was compiled by Arlene Alda, author of 15 children's books and the wife of actor Alan Alda. Any profits earned by Arlene Alda will be contributed to children's charities in the New York City borough.
Others to be featured in "Just Kids" include author Mary Higgins Clark, playwright-cartoonist Jules Feiffer and rapper Grandmaster Melle Mel.
