Dregni_Sending cover USEEric Dregni will be at Frankie's Pizza on Wednesday, June 19 at 12:30 p.m. for a discussion and signing of his book You're Sending Me Where?: Dispatches from Summer Camp, with the Northwest Suburban Optimists Club.

 

Eric Dregni takes us back to those boyhood days of running head-on into nature with his fellow campers and learning a few valuable lessons. From discouraging summer love to soothing homesick campers, this wise, funny book reassures us that there’s still a place in the woods where, unplugged from devices, children can connect with the natural world—and with each other.

 

"Dregni specializes in describing the detail of human interaction. His stories of discouraging camp romances, love triangles, how to deal with staff who melt down over bats, cabin-to-cabin antics (and revenge) are witty and engaging and make the reader both reminisce and feel a part of the whole scene." —Concordia Language Villages 

 

"By the end of the memoir, you’ll find yourself in the same shape as the campgoers on the last days of camp—you don’t want it to end." —Italian America

 

"Eric Dregni’s wise, funny book reassures us that there’s still a place in the woods where, unplugged from devices and screens, children of all ages can connect with the natural world, and with each other." —The Pilot-independent
