In Hail, Hail to U City High, author Alan Spector shares the journey of his class of early baby boomers from pre-high school days, through their high school experience in the early 60s, over intervening decades, to their lives today in their early 60s. Alan then dares to look into their collective future. Alan feels fortunate to be a member of the University City High School Class of 1964. In the early 60s, U City was a benchmark of academics, athletics, arts, and activities. Their high school experience, as it should, provided students with a solid foundation for their futures. However, when classmates left U City for those futures, they could have never predicted how they would still be close four-plus decades later. Alan is among the hundreds of classmates who are connected electronically, attend reunions, plan and enjoy mini-reunions all over the country, go on class cruises, provide support to classmates in need, and feel as though they have a second extended family. Alan s story runs throughout the book as does those of other classmates. He follows the paths of their individual life histories, the collective class history, and human history; all inextricably intertwined. Since graduating in 1964, classmates have been separated by time, geography, and their individual life stories yet, a large percentage remain remarkably close. There is much to be learned from their journey. Just as Alan s first book, Baseball: Never Too Old to Play The Game, used baseball to explore life lessons learned from the game, so does Hail, Hail to U City High use the journey of Alan s University City High School Class of 1964 to explore life lessons learned. His classmates, baby boomers from all high schools, and both older and younger readers will be able to relate Alan s story to their own. Hail Hail to U City High, therefore, is a book for anyone who feels an attachment to his or her high school class, regardless of the graduation year and home town. As Judy Van Ginkel, PhD, author of Life Begins and Ends with Girlfriends, says, Al s storytelling drew me in and made me feel part of his class and their close relationships. Everyone reading Hail, Hail to U City High will be able to relate their own friendships to those of Al s classmates.
