Press Release

Fulton Books author Jim Aziere, a notable professional with a master’s degree in education, has completed his most recent book “The Sixteenth Street Chronicles”: a riveting memoir on the influences of teachers and coaches in the lives of their students before the last quarter of the twentieth century. Here, the author shares the historical and pictorial elements of the neighborhood he’d grown up in. From its values and virtues to the music and dress codes, the author opens the door to the past and invites readers to look back on the period that no longer exists but helped shape a generation.

“Here, Missouri Hall of Famer and sports educator Jim Aziere has crafted a remarkable true story, a classically American story, about an essential part of his youthful struggles and our own, featuring a one-of-a-kind Kansas City parochial high school called De La Salle Academy that flourished in the years between wars—1941-1959—a time of great social strife in our city. It’s an eye-opening tale of the seismic shifts in America in the 1960s, about a unique group of Christian educators who managed to integrate a high school before Brown v. Board of Education—but could not keep the dream alive beyond Watergate. You’re sure to find Jim’s story about his years at De La Salle—where he was first a student and later faculty—highly affecting and personal as he recounts his many life lessons, survives a learning disability, and uses athletic skill and determination to excel despite everything. It’s bound to touch and inspire anyone who’s ever felt more at home on AstroTurf than in a classroom.”

Published by Fulton Books, Jim Aziere’s book is a beautiful piece that screams nostalgia. Every account is written with much honesty and rawness; it did not sugarcoat the flaws nor the faults of the characters. 

It’s a straightforward read filled with nuggets of wisdom.

Readers who wish to experience this heartfelt work can purchase “The Sixteenth Street Chronicles” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes & Noble.
