Megan Cashman Just a note: Frank McCourt did not live on Staten Island, but he taught at one of the high schools there for many years.

Anton Hmm...prove me wrong, but I think Theodore Sturgeon is the most prolific on this list?


message 3: by Megan (last edited Jan 04, 2014 06:14AM) (new)

Megan Cashman I'd say Frank McCourt is. But if you feel Sturgeon deserves to be on top, feel free to vote for him!

Josephine Strand I'd like to add my book to this list of Staten Island authors. My book Misty Dreams released in April 2021
