Frank Vetro Book Signing

BookRevue_082214

Author Frank Vetro will be at Book Revue at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 21 to sign his new memoir, Standing on Principal. On February 8, 2006, Vetro, the young, popular principal of a school in eastern Long Island, saw his life dramatically altered. On that day, he was arrested and effectively labeled a terrorist who had hidden under the guise of a New York educator.

In Standing on Principal, he shares his personal story, detailing his arrest, his nights in jail, the court proceedings, and the subsequent fight to clear his name after the alleged scandal was nurtured into the national limelight. Now he recounts the injustice, and the lack of integrity of individuals who allowed the destruction of his life without a moment’s concern for fairness or truth.
Telling a real-life story of deception and scandal, Standing on Principal exposes rogue elements of a system that underestimated the tenacious character of its accused and shows how Vetro sacrificed everything as he refused to be intimidated by a political machine. Huntington’s Book Revue is located at 313 New York Ave. and the event is free. For more information, please call 631-271-1442 or visit www.bookrevue.com
