Native Wayne Author Comes Back for Book Signing at The Fine Grind Oct. 7

Credits: The Fine Grind

WAYNE, NJ - The Fine Grind in Wayne will host a nationally recognized author for a book signing on Saturday, Oct. 7 from 2 to 4 p.m.. Brian Wilson, a radio personality, will be selling and signing his book "Watercolor Memories: The Story of Lauren." Brian is a Wayne native (the main location of the book) and a nationally-known radio and television host, author, speaker and consultant. Local residents may recall his shows on WABC and Z-100.

In his 50-year broadcasting career, Brian hosted successful radio programs at Heritage stations in the nation’s largest markets, including New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston, Baltimore and Washington, DC. As morning drive host at WABC/New York, he was the first DJ to successfully transition to Talk Show Host literally overnight as the ABC powerhouse switched from its legendary Music Radio format to Talk Radio in 1982. In 1988, he was hired as “Head Zookeeper” of the highly successful Z-Morning Zoo at Z-100/New York.

"Watercolor Memories: The Story of Lauren" is that old high school love story told anew: Boy meets Girl, Boy loses Girl, Boy finds Girl. But this time, it takes 15 years, two proms, college, marriage, divorce, kids, careers, over 10,000 miles, a chess-playing cop and some strange guy with a beard. Even then, the ending is a surprise and a shock. Or maybe it isn’t. That’s the surprise! You may laugh. You may cry. Read slowly. Savor the story.
