A Sixties Story Press Release


2010 – New Release Shares Author’s Memories of Tumultuous Times in American History
A Sixties Story
is released by Toni Apicelli
Toni Apicelli was raised in quiet north side Chicago neighborhood and was a popular high school cheerleader in the early 1960s. As the 1960s ushered in the civil rights movement, she found herself questioning the status quo around her and becoming more involved in the burgeoning protests. She, like many others of her time, felt betrayed by the dishonesty of the government and turned to the counterculture movement as a way to make the world a better place.
While Apicelli experimented with less addictive drugs, her younger sister Teri became addicted to heroin. Apicelli moved and traveled around the country, working for a short time with the newly formed VISTA in the deep south, protesting at the infamous 1968 Democratic National Convention, temping and living in Washington D.C, New York and Southern California. While Apicelli eventually landed on her feet, her younger sister was not as fortunate. 
A Sixties Story is a thoughtful portrayal of the confusion and craziness of the 1960s through the eyes of a young woman who wanted the world around her to make sense. It is beautifully written, and the author’s frustration and anger at the status quo come through loud and clear.  Toni Apicelli is a writer, editor and proofreader living in Chicago with her husband of ten years.  She earned her BA in California, and her MA in Writing from DePaul University in Chicago in 1998.
