My Parents Were Awesome Blogger Scores Book Deal

awesomeparents.jpgBlogger Eliot Glazer has landed a book deal with Ryan Doherty at Villard Trade Paperback. Entitled “My Parents Were Awesome,” the new anthology will feature funny stories and pictures of young parents.

Glazer curates the Tumblr blog, My Parents Were Awesome. The site collects vintage photos of parents, just like that picture of “Vern and Debbie.” The deal was negotiated by Hannah Brown Gordon at Foundry Literary + Media.

Glazer was interviewed by NPR about his project, and had these thoughts: “There’s so many pictures of, you know, the hippies, the hippy generation just spread out among friends, bellbottoms, flowers in their hair, everything that I know essentially from stories from my parents and books and movies. It existed and it’s so cool to see it. You know, the fashion was so different back then and it really comes through in these photos.” by
