John Reseck Jr. started writing in 1958 while a member of a five­ man U.S. scientific team sent to Antarctica, by writing articles for US newspapers.

His book, Life According To Grandpa, is a series of word  snapshots from his travels and a life full of adventures, from the Antarctic to South America, Africa, Galapagos, Central America, as well as his life on, and in, the ocean.

Each story has moments that made him laugh, cry, learn something, and on rare occasions angry, but always reminded him of how wonderful our lives are if we stay positive.

Reseck has been a weekly columnist in several newspapers, and a monthly magazine columnist, written three nonfiction books, (on Marine Biology, SCUBA diving, and kayaking), for the public, two training manuals for the US military, three fiction murder mysteries, short stories, and volume one of his memoirs.

His work has appeared in Readers Digest and National Geographic. His publishers include Prentice Hall, Simon and Shuster, Fireside Press, Amazon, Griffin Publishing and Ingram. He taught full time at Santa Ana College, and special subjects on the campus of UCI, UCLA, Texas A&M, University of Hawaii, Fullerton State and Simon Frazer in Canada.

He wrote this book for your enjoyment, and perhaps even a little covert philosophy, to help you support and maintain a positive attitude in life, like he has.

This is a free event, however, please RSVP to Carol Latham: clatham@muzeo.org
