Author of Peck's Bad Boy

Author, Politician, Publisher, and Statesman

August Geringer, Chicago

This Chicago publisher printed one Peck book. It was translated into Czechoslovakian. Thus, I am totally mystified by what it is about.

Its title is:

Z pamětí 13tiletého Vendelína Brčka: důstojného representanta Mladé Amerike

It is 75 pages and was adapted by Josef Cermak. The book is undated.

The best title translation I have is: From the Memoirs of 13 Year Old Vendolin Brcka, Honorary Representative of Young America

Geringer (1842-1930) was the publisher of the first (1875) Bohemian newspaper in the United States-Svornhost as well as several other newspapers and magazines.
