Following graduation from the
University of Rochester, Dr. William Guiffre served in the U.S.
Navy for three years and returned to upstate New York where he
became an English teacher at Brighton Junior High School.
His career in public education included ten years as a guidance
counselor and nineteen years as an administrator, the last fifteen
years of which he served as high school principal in Victor, New
York. He is the father of six daughters and one son and the grandfather
of the thirteen children who help Gramma find her glasses.
When not looking for her glasses, he and his wife, Ann, are busy
maintaining their historic 1828 home in Victor and their camp in
the Adirondack Mountains. Mot recently they have begun to
spend additional time on Kiawah Island, South Carolina, where they
bike, fish, golf, play tennis, or walk on the beach. This
book was inspired by Gramma and her reading glasses, which are
never in sight.
