Article Body:
Carl Veno’s book, Invisible Ink, provides an insider’s view of the
newspaper world during the author’s 25-years as a journalist and editor -
at a time when major events were having dramatic affects on American
society. Told in a no-nonsense matter-of-fact manner, the tales of
experience are intermingled with the author’s family history, including
the immigration of his Italian ancestors to America more than 125 years
ago. Reminiscent moments clearly reveal Carl’s fond memories of growing
up and his youthful love of New York.

Various newspaper readership "wars" were destroying and absorbing each
other during an incredible age of change and discovery for the American
people. Exciting and newsworthy issues including men and women learning
to co-exist in the workplace, mobsters, racism, riots, war and space
travel were fighting for newspaper space. Between all this the author
reveals inner office politics within the industry. We all know from our
own experience, differences occur at places of employment – management
issues, co-worker competition, etc. – and it is all here. Yet on top of
this the reader is introduced to interesting and eccentric characters,
complicated work-related relationships and office love affairs. The
epilogue closes nicely with the fate of some of the newspapers mentioned
in the book.

Prior to entering the world of journalism, Carl spent time as a barber,
boxer and army trooper. Not including his free-lance work and lecturing,
Veno was employed by eight newspapers (some of which won many awards) and
was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize during his career. Carl is now
retired and able to pursue his love of exercise through jogging and
continues to write books.
