    Tom Cooney is a calm, good-natured man with a keen sense of responsiblity, which is probably why he devoted his entire life to public service.  After he completed a tour of duty in the army, Cooney's dream of becoming a New York City Fireman came true in 1959, when he was sworn in and issued lucky badge #711.

    Tom, a 20-year veteran of the New York Fire Department and a volunteer at Ground Zero, will discuss his life as a NYC Fireman and read from his book The Man Behind Badge #711.

    The Billionaire’s Vinegar, now a New York Times bestseller, tells the true story of a 1787 Château Lafite Bordeaux — supposedly owned by Thomas Jefferson — that sold for $156,000 at auction and of the eccentrics whose lives intersected with it. Was it truly entombed in a Paris cellar for two hundred years? Or did it come from a secret Nazi bunker? Or from the moldy basement of a devilishly brilliant con artist? As Benjamin Wallace unravels the mystery, we meet a gallery of intriguing players — from the bicycle-riding British auctioneer who speaks of wines as if they are women to the obsessive wine collector who discovered the bottle. Suspenseful and thrillingly strange, this is the vintage tale of what could be the most elaborate con since the Hitler diaries.

    Books are available to check out from the Library.
