Join us at the Blockson Collection for a conversation and book signing with George J. Amonitti, author of Streets of Philly.

Streets of Philly is an autobiography of a boy growing up in Philadelphia. As he avoids the pitfalls of apathy toward education, drugs, and crime, he ultimately overcomes overwhelming odds to achieve his lifelong dream of a medical career. The book is filled with humor, travel, arts, romance, tragedy, and, finally, triumph.
